Coaches comments: Last year Alexander was the main cog for the 10-2 Clarion Area Bobcats’ Offensive Line, that led the way for the areas first 2000 yard rusher in 64 years. Alexander and his fellow lineman paved the way for a rushing attack that finished with 4200 yards. This year Alexander and the Senior heavy Offensive line plan to continue mentoring the young running backs and continue the Clarion Area winning tradition. Alexander will be a 2 way player starting at nose on defense.
