Roger

Character Analysis

Roger is Reardan High School's star basketball player... who Arnold punches in the face. Yeesh.

But Roger isn't all fists of fury. Roger comes to respect Arnold and even loans him money during the Winter Formal—he's kind of a good dude. The two play on the basketball team together.
