On February 5th, 2018, Alexander Falade, senior offensive lineman, made it official and announced his commitment to Shepherd University. Shepherd is one of the best Division-2 schools in the nation. Alexander is an All-County Lineman, so it was a perfect match. I was able to ask Alex a few questions about his commitment.
Terrence : “What made Shepherd University the right school for you?”
Alex: “Shepard has an excellent program for my field of study, an exceptional history of football practice, and it’s one of the best division II schools out there.”
Terrence: “Do you feel like you can have an immediate impact at Shepherd?”
Alex: “Yes, I do feel like I can make a great impact at Shepherd. By the time I get back in the rhythm, I feel I can accomplish a lot within my first year.”
Terrence: “Do you have any advice for the underclassmen to get to where you are?”
Alex: “My message to the underclassmen is this: STUDENT before ATHLETE. Football is a luxury, but education is a priority.”
Alex will be signing his National Letter of Intent at National Signing Day on Feb. 7th! We wish you good luck in your future endeavors Alex!
