Jerry "Gerald" Rogers was an unethical star quarterback at a rival high school, who aims to steal Greg's football playbook in "Quarterback Sneak." Unknown to Marcia, Jerry asks to drive her home (so he can get in the house and thus at the playbook). Greg's initial suspicions are confirmed when Bobby sees an attempted theft. Marcia refuses to believe Greg about Jerry at first, but later sees Jerry's true colors when she witnesses the second attempt, which is successful. Jerry — who has actually stolen a phony playbook Greg created — is later kicked off the team when his coach finds out about the theft.
