-Blue Bombers Most Outstanding Rookie, 2017
2019: Blue Bombers
Injuries limited Alexander to 10 games in 2019, all starts, but he continued to serve as a versatile and dynamic defender as well as a respected voice in the locker room. Alexander finished the year with 38 defensive tackles, four special-teams tackles, with four pass knockdowns and a fumble recovery. Missed eight games during a stretch from August 1-September 27 and when he returned, made the switch from defensive halfback to safety.
Alexander was particularly effective in the playoffs, with five tackles in the Western Semi-final win over Calgary, a forced fumble in the Western Final victory over Saskatchewan and then an interception in the first quarter of the Grey Cup win over Hamilton.
2018: Blue Bombers
Alexander dressed for 14 games in 2018, all starts, and continued his transformation into an important part of the team’s defence. He finished with 36 tackles, three interceptions — tied for second on the club — while adding two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, four pass knock downs and five tackles for a loss.
The emerging force and now a veteran voice in the Bombers defence agreed to a new two-year contract on February 12th, 2019 that would keep him with the club through the 2020 season.
