How often do you play?
In the summer I played football every day with morning workouts and practice. During the season, Monday through Friday, we had practices and games. On Saturdays, I’d go and throw with my wide receivers.
What are you best at?
Making plays when the original play breaks down — just improvising.
What could you improve on?
I could probably improve on accuracy with passing.
What is the best part about football?
The best part about football is hitting. I love hitting people — as mean as that sounds!
Scroll down to see a video of why Alex's coach, Josh Smithers, nominated him to be The Sarasota Observer's Athlete of the Week.
