Three Things To Know About Alex

1. Before coming to Michigan as a walk-on, Alex had never played organized football in high school.  He attended a jewish day school that did not offer the sport (he wrestled instead) and got a year of football-ish experience in a post-grad year spent in Israel playing 8-man football in a four year old amateur league.

2. His Michigan connections go a little deeper as he has done offseason training with quarterbacks coach Tom Martinez, who has coached Tom Brady in the past.

3. Don't get too excited to see Alex on the field.  He moved up the depth chart last year because of injuries, but should be back down near the tail end now.
