Rodenburg, a 6-6 forward, averaged 11.6 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game while converting 46 percent of his field goals and 40 percent of his three-point tries last season.  He claimed all-city, all-conference and all-Western Iowa honors in basketball this season.  A multi-sport athlete, Rodenburg earned all-city and all-district honors in football and qualified for the Drake Relays and the state track and field meet during his high school career.

“We are very pleased Lincoln will be a part of our basketball program next season.  Lincoln comes from an outstanding program at Lewis Central under the direction of coach Dan Miller.  Coming off a solid senior season, Lincoln has the potential to become an even better player in the future as he becomes physically stronger.  He is versatile player on both ends of the floor and possesses a skill set that fits well with our system.  In addition to his basketball abilities, Lincoln is a very good student who will thrive on our campus,” said Dordt College coach Ross Douma.

Lincoln is the son of Eric and Deanna Rodenburg of Council Bluffs, Iowa.  He plans to study civil engineering at Dordt College.
