What makes you stand out as a future collegiate athlete?
Alex Carman was honored to be the only freshman on the varsity roster. He started at LT and his versatility helped his team at four of the five OL positions. He consistently earned high blocking grades. He lettered in football, lacrosse, and academics. As a sophomore, Alex returns as the only OL starter leading at C. He strives to impact the team with his integrity, high Football IQ, stamina, work ethic, and coachability. Alex is always learning and growing.
Carman earned a lot of reps as a freshman, and going into sophomore year he transitioned over to center, which is a more natural position for his frame. He does a nice job moving with the defender while engaged, gets up to the 2nd level pretty quickly. You can tell there is a degree of urgency in the way Carman plays the game, and he shows solid fundamentals, nice hand placement when blocking. Needs to continue to fillout his frame, but looks like that should be no problem, and over the next year he should really balloon to be over 260. – Who said I’m not good at predicting weights, I wrote this year ago and Carmen is exactly 258 lbs. The 2021 center will be in the elite GA classic again. He definitely does a good job keeping his hands inside the shoulder pads of the defender and drives them out of the play with his legs. Pretty good leverage, there is a lot to like about the 2021 recruit. Will he continue to add weight, probably, but considering his frame Carmen will max out at about 280 lbs. Good combo blocker but also does a lot in solo situations too. Understated part to Carmen’s game is how long his arms look, and that definitely plays a huge role in the leverage he gets.
