Alexander is becoming known as a football factory, churning out successful season year after year, but as the wins pile up they want to break new ground leaving this years team looking to go where no other Laredo team has been.
Looking at what Alexander has coming back in 2013 it's easy to see why Bulldog fans are excited about their teams prospects. The big loss on offense is running back Xavier Skaggs but his brother Xavione is still here to pick up most of that slack. While the offensive line remains a bit of a question mark having a quarterback like Aaron Swain can make plays even when things break down up front.
"When you get an experienced quarterback like that with a year under his belt, you're able to tweak some routes, change some plays and just kind of play around with some things you'd like to do and that's where we are at at this point."
On defense some of the teams top talent will see a lot of action and that is by design.
"We pick the best guys we have in the program and we just put the best guys that are going to play that position and then we start with our tests Friday night."
This is a team that is eying another district championship after being edged out last season by Del Rio.
"We're hungry for championships. That's the whole point of our team, we're hungry for more. We are going to fight every single opponent we have in front and we are going to work together to try and be the best."
But don't think they want to stop at just another district championship or even the vaunted third round.
"A lot of teams would die to go to the third round, but i think us as a program, at Alexander we're tired of making the third round. We want to break that wall and hopefully we can get that done this year."
"It will be a blessing again to accomplish the 3rd round and it would be better to knock that door down on the 4th round and hopefully state champions."
Alexander will get their season kicked off this Friday night as they travel east to take on Alice. Be sure to tune in this Friday night to Friday Football Fever as we bring you highlights and scores from a number of games including the Bulldogs taking on the Coyotes.
