TRAVIS WELLS: Barring injury Rouse
will be a certain first round pick next

spring. The NFL money will allow him
to take care of his family, including
his mom, brother and two older sisters.
You see, Aaron is the only man in
their lives. His father, Roosevelt

Rouse is one of the ACC's
fiercest hitters on the field, and

life's biggest hits along the way.
