For the season, Alexander has rushed for 325 yards and four touchdowns on the ground, both of which place him within the top-ten of all runners in DeKalb. He also has a receiving touchdown as well.
Defensively, Alexander has been just as valuable to the Wildcats, posting 28 tackles, the third-most on the team, one sack and one interception from the defensive back position.
"Aaron has really matured on and off the field over the past year,” Dunwoody head coach Jim Showfety said. “He is undoubtedly one of our team leaders and he continues to make big plays on both sides of the ball every game. It's scary to think where we would be without him.”
Dunwoody will return to action this Friday in a region contest against M.L. King, a team that has perennially been one of the top programs in Class AAAAA. Tucker and Stephenson, the top-two ranked teams in the class are also in the Wildcats’ region.
“Our region is just brutal, but our kids are starting to believe in themselves a little bit more each week,” Showfety said. “Aaron is a big reason why."
