Felipe Rodriguez (born September 12, 1975 in El Monte, California) is a retired American soccer midfielder who played for the Colorado Rapids of Major League Soccer in 1996.

In 1992, Rodriguez spent a year in the Standard Liege youth system. He then returned to the United States and graduated from El Monte High School. In 1993, he played for the Montclair Standard Falcons in the USISL. In 1994, he moved to Mexico and signed with Querétaro FC in the Second Division. At some point during the season, he moved to the UNAM Pumas in the Primera División de México. In February 1996, the Colorado Rapids selected Rodriguez in the 10th round (92nd overall) of the 1996 MLS Inaugural Player Draft. He played ten games for the Rapids. In August, he injured his left hip flexor which forced him to miss several games. On November 8, 1997, the Rapids traded Rodriguez to the Los Angeles Galaxy in exchange for a potential 1997 draft pick. He never played a first game with the Galaxy before moving to the Orange County Zodiac of the USISL. He played the 1997 and 1998 season with the Zodiac.

Since retiring from playing, Rodriguez has coached youth soccer. He is currently the Director of Technical Training with the Cresecenta Valley Soccer Club, as well as representing the club in various coaching capacities.
