It has been a wonderful journey from the time Alex arrived from Lake Belton Middle school to now.  Alex is a player we knew early on, that liked being physical at the point of attack and did not hesitate to hit people and separate football players from the football. His athleticism and instincts allowed him to play linebacker at a very high level. The process is something that Alex embraced and he really took control of being the emotional leader for the football team. His energy and ability to motivate others was a phenomenal. As the year progressed, his production and level of play picked up tremendously.A Aaron

Alex played an strong safety – outside linebacker and finished his senior season with 78 tackles and one sack. Alex was the team MVP vs. South Grand Prairie and was selected as a 2nd Team All-District Linebacker.

I have personally coached John since he was a freshmen and I could tell early on that he was going to be a collegiate football player. His work ethic towards learning the little things that it takes to become a good linebacker is something that John took and ran with. Harvey
