The moment that Alex will always remember is winning the Golden Horseshoe final.

Its the fact I contributed to this winning team that made it feel so amazing, playing in the Rogers Center was a surreal feeling,” said Alex.  “It felt amazing to be part of a team that beat out schools from all around and be crowned one of the best schools in the Province.”

Luckily for Alex, he has surrounded himself with many motivational and inspirational people that keep him focused and help him become successful.

In my life I would have to say my family,” said Alex.  “They helped made me, me and they can help me when I need it.”

“In football, it would have to be my o-line coaches. I have been blessed with great coaches my whole football life and they really made me the play I am today.”
