Alabama QB/ATH Names Leaders

Earl Alexander is an athletic signal caller from Phenix City, AL. He performed well enough a year ago to garner offers from some of the top programs in the south and he's off to an equally good start to this season.

"I have no idea what my stats are exactly but I have probably 350yds passing, 250yds passing, 3 rushing touchdowns and 2 passing touchdowns. Were 2-0 overall and 1-0 in the region so far. This weekend we're playing Auburn," Earl Alexander said.

Earl decided to stay close to home last weekend and make the trip over to the Plains to watch defending SEC Champions open the 2005 season.

"I went to the Auburn game this weekend. It went well. They couldn't pull out the victory but they fought to the end and didn't give up."

What did he like most about the atmosphere?

"I went to the Auburn/Georgia game last year so I kind of knew how it went but just the atmosphere of playing down there with those fans is amazing. The whole thing was just fun."

Alexander hung out with a couple of the best players in the state of Alabama during visit.

"I hung out with Tim Hawthorne. We were trying to kick it and talk. I hung out with Neil Caudle and talked to him for a little bit too."

Despite the good time, Auburn just narrowly missed out on making his top 5.

"Alabama, Georgia, Clemson, LSU and Louisville. Those are my top 5 right now. Auburn and Tennessee are around the top of the list also."

He's yet to set his first official trip but he'll be back at Jordan-Hare on Saturday for another of the Tigers games.

"I haven't set any official visits yet. I'm going back down to Auburn this weekend for the Mississippi State game. It's just convenient for me to get to since I can drive there and all that."
