Coach Comments: Alex is one of the leaders of the team both vocally and with his positive attitude. He keeps the team, and coaches, smiling. A great middle for years, Alex was giving up his position to go to the outside to help the team. This year we had more middles than normal, so Alex was going to use this athletic ability to move to the outside. He passes well for someone his size and can jump well and looked to give us one of the better one outside hitting combinations in the league and in Becahi history. Three-year letter winner in volleyball and two-year letter for soccer as well. Another one of our candidates for player of the year. Alex will be attending the Pennsylvania College of Technology and trying out for the men’s soccer team.
