Scouting Report – Alexander Knisley, will continue his football career at Adrian College, a 5’ 10” Senior, OLB/Strong Safety, Class of 2012, Port Charlotte HS, Port Charlotte, FL. 3 Year Varsity Football, 3 Year Varsity Wrestler, 3 Year Varsity Power Lifter; dedication and hard work are no stranger to Alex. As a 3 sport athlete and member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Alex still has time to be an exceptional student (3.078 GPA, 1090 SAT and 21 ACT) and donate his time to his church and community.
Alex writes: The positions I’ve played are outside linebacker and strong safety through my 3 years of playing varsity football. Our defensive schemes have been 3-4-4 and 3-5-3. Some player attributes that I display every day is my work ethic and dedication, to strive to make myself better in all aspects of being an athlete; by running, doing foot speed drills, and working out with weights Monday-Friday. With these attributes and hard work I hope to achieve my desired goal of going to college to play football. My academic achievements are: I’m taking college readiness courses in high school such as physics 1 and college readiness math, I’m also taking an extra science class anatomy & physiology.
