Luis René Rodas Medina (born 3 January 1985) is a Honduran football striker who plays for Mictlán.[1]

Club career[edit]

Nicknamed el Castor (the Beaver), he previously played in Motagua since he was 10 years old.

After Rodas and teammate Roy Posas were released by Motagua after a drink-driving incident which led to their arrest,[2] Rodas moved abroad to play for Guatemalan side Suchitepéquez where he was joined by compatriot José Güity in 2009.[3] He joined Necaxa for the 2010 Apertura championship[4] and returned to Guatemala to play the 2012 Clausura for Mictlán.[5]

Rodas has played in every category of the Honduras national football team, making his debut for the senior side versus El Salvador. He also played at the 2008 Summer Olympics.[6][7]
