Recruiting Interview: OT Trey’Veon Alexander, St. Martinville
by Jace LeJeune
Today’s recruiting interview is on a very underrated offensive tackle named Tre’Veon Alexander from St. Martinville High School. Alexander definitely looks the part to be a top recruit at 6’3, 325 pounds and has the feet to play for a lot of colleges in the country. Alexander has all the physical tools to be a great offensive lineman at the next level. Another thing about this guy is that he was not always this big. Louisiana Football Magazine Editor and TV host Lee Brecheen has payed close attention to Tre’Veon Alexander since he started playing football for the Tigers because of his weight.
“I saw him as a sophomore,” said Brecheen. “Back then, he was only 230 pounds, but now, he is close to 330 pounds! Trey’Veon Alexander has great feet and is a player to watch for in the end when it comes to recruiting.”
Throughout the years that Alexander has played football, he has improved after each year. This could be the year that not only he puts it all together, but the team as well. The Tigers are off to a great start as the team is currently 2-0 winning games against Jeanerette and Assumption. This week, Trey’Veon Alexander and gang face off against Eunice High School which has a couple of stud defensive backs on their team. It should be a good matchup and we will see if the Tigers can keep their perfect record alive. Before the season began, we caught up with the veteran offensive lineman for St. Martinville and he gave his thoughts on the season as well as some advice to other offensive linemen who are trying to get bigger and stronger like him. All that and more on today’s recruiting interview!
