On most of his runs, Battle would get a key block from Alexander. I really liked this kid, because he seemed to love to block and he took great pride in clearing a path for Battle on his way into the end zone or a long run.
I was also very impressed with him catching the football. Although the running backs for Humble do not go out for very many passes, Alexander did show great skill in catching at least one tough pass in that playoff game.
In the powerful running back offense that Coach Neal Quillin has installed at Humble, Alexander might find himself in the featured back role as a senior. If he does, he will certainly be a load to bring down.
His final stats as a junior were 793 yards rushing and 11 touchdowns and with a nifty 7.1 yards per carry average. He also caught six balls for 114 yards and two touchdowns for a 19 yard per catch average.
Humble is loaded again for next year and they should improve on their 9-3 record from last season. If they do improve, then Alexander will probably be making an impact at either running back or fullback on the offense.
