What Does Commando Football Mean To You: It means family bond that truly transcends a sport, a bond that lasts a lifetime.

A true leader for the COMMANDOS in every way, Alex was always committed to his teammates, coaches, and team putting all of them before himself.  His leadership and unselfishness showed in everything that he did.  He was always volunteering to help for various events in the community, he was one of the strongest players on the team and worked hard in the weightroom, always gave his all during conditioning, was a great practice player, held his teammates accountable in the locker room and off the field, was a consistent member of the teams honor roll, was always giving words of encouragement to his teammates, and did what his coaches asked of him.  All of his hard work paid off on Friday nights where he always performed at a high level.  Alex was a very versatile player, having the ability to play multiple positions on both sides of the ball.  Was voted by his teammates as both a ‘TEAM CAPTAIN’ as well as ‘MOST VALUABLE LINEMAN’ for the 2015 season.  He was also named ‘ALL-REGION’ were he was the Region 6 ‘MOST VALUABLE OFFENSIVE LINEMAN’ for 2015, and was 1st team ‘ALL-COUNTY’ as a defensive lineman.  Ended his career with 54 total tackles, 9 tackles for loss, 3 pass break ups, and 1 forced fumble.  Alex was a complete player that possessed all of the traits that we want in a COMMANDO player, and is one that HHS will not be able to replace.
