Bradley Alexander has no qualms with playing offense and defense for Canyon Springs.
The senior quarterback and defensive back relishes his all-around role, and it’s easy to see why Pioneers coach Hunkie Cooper says the “sky’s the limit” for his veteran playmaker.
Alexander threw three touchdown passes and snagged an interception on defense to lead Canyon Springs to a 39-26 home win over Foothill on Friday night.
“Our expectations for Brad are, the sky’s the limit,” Cooper said. “He’s been starting since he was a sophomore. He did everything we asked him to do; he delivered some balls under pressure, vertical touchdowns.”
Two of those touchdown passes went to Kasey Allison, and another went to Greg Banks.
Zaviontay Stevenson added a long touchdown run for Canyon Springs (3-1).
“We were able to overcome adversity this time and grind our way,” Cooper said.
Kajuan Casey added an interception for the Pioneers’ defense, and Cooper also praised offensive and defensive lineman Tui Vergara, who he said played more than 120 plays in the game.
“He played stellar,” Cooper said of Vergara. “He’s a guy who’s been through a lot and persevered.”
Foothill (1-3) got a pair of touchdown passes from Devon Mueller, one to Cory Fisher and another to Aedan Bartolowits.
