Alex Valenzuela St. Charles North DB Class Of 2023 6'1 190
Alex Valenzuela how is your season going so far? It’s been great, my coaches have done a great job of putting me in a position to make plays and just allowing me to be an athlete. This is also the most pass breakups I’ve had in my whole career. What has been your favorite memory so far this season? So far, I would have to say against Wheaton North. It was a close game to the wire but watching Drew Surges and Jake Furtney run that little flip play was amazing. What should college coaches know about you? They should know that I can play anywhere as a DB and align in the box. I’m a big physical kid who can run with any wide out as well as playing a nickel spot. What do you feel is your strongest trait on the football field? I would say leading by example and just showing the guys we are all capable of making big plays. What do you feel you have improved on from last season to this season? I would say open field tacking has improved tremendously along with route Recognition and staying patient on wrs releases.
What motivates a Alex Valenzuela?
Lately it’s been winning a state championship but overall, I would say the sacrifices my family has made for me just to give me the best opportunity and experience.
