Player of the Week: Derek Alexander

For the Week Of Oct 8, 2012

Derek Alexander

When a player has an outstanding game, there is need for applause. When the player can put forth the same tremendous effort with a heavy heart, a raucous cheer is more appropriate.

The latter is the case for this week's MSC Player of the Week St. Cloud Apollo's Derek Alexander.

Alexander carried the load as the focal point of the Eagle's offense Friday, just hours after learning of his grandmother's death in New Orleans. Alexander rushed for 94 yards on 21 carries helping to set up a 9-6 victory over Sauk Rapids Rice, a victory that snapped a 22 game losing streak for Apollo.

With plans to leave for New Orleans the morning after the game no doubt in the forefront of his mind, Alexander also keyed the Apollo defense from his line-backing spot, racking up a sack and multiple key tackles.

Big congratulations go out to this week’s MSC Player of the Week St. Cloud Apollo’s Derek Alexander, along with our deepest condolences to him and his entire family.

Congratulations Derek Alexander on being the All Star Trophy and Awards Player of the Week!
