Frank Alexander, DE, 6-3, 241, 4.8, BATON ROUGE (SOUTHERN LAB SCHOOL), LA:
JH: How did your opening game go?
FA: "We played last Thursday and we won by one point. I think I played well. I had two or three sacks and four tackles. I also had a fumble recovery and a safety. Then at tight end, I made a block on a running play that scored a touchdown. I didn't catch any passes, but I had a couple thrown my way. They were high and on one of them the defense picked up a pass interference penalty."
JH: Who is up next on your schedule?
FA: "We play Capitol High on Thursday. They are a 3A school. We are a 1A school and beat a 4A school last week. Then next week we play a 2A school so we are going to be playing up until our district starts."
JH: Are you still playing defensive end?
FA: "I play defensive end on the strongside of the field?
