What is your name?
Alvin Reels Jr

What is your position?
LB/Stand up DE
Where do you play college football?
Dakota State University(NAIA) Transferred from William Penn(NAIA)
Football is about giving back, what is the coolest thing you have done off the field?
Went to a Veterans Hospital and passed out Christmas cards with some teammates it was a great experience.
What was the hardest college class you ever had to take?
Where are you from?
Who is your role model, and why?
My mom she taught me to never quit anything you start and that has taken me pretty far in life. I can always count on her to be there for me that’s my best friend.
Did you play any other sports growing up?
Yes, Basketball and baseball also played Lacrosse in HS.
Did you play any other positions in football?
Yes I’ve played almost every position in football from every LB position RB to OL to DE really anything to get me on the field.
At your position, what separates you from others?
I’ve been told I have good lateral speed I can get sideline to sideline pretty easy. I would say it’s my motor and my passion I pride myself on working hard and giving my all on every play.
When you are breaking down film, what do you look for?
I look at the O-line a lot see how there splits are and if they have any tendencies and how physical they are. I also read the RB’s body language and his steps also I look for what type of runner he is.
Who was the toughest player you ever faced?
Kurtis Walls QB Valley City State
If you could compare your play to one player in the NFL who would it be and why?
I would probably say I compare my game to Lavontae David LB for TB Bucs. He’s one of those hybrid LB’s he’s not that tall but he’s fast and plays with a high motor. I just sit back and watch him every play he gets sideline to sideline and makes plays in the backfield. That’s something I pride myself on is playing fast and with a high motor causing disruptions.
What was the biggest obstacle in your life you had to overcome, and how did you overcome it?
The hardest obstacle I had to overcome was leaving my first school and sitting out a year. I had to really prepare myself mentally to sit out and kind of find myself again and what’s my reason for still trying to play. I learned a lot about myself and what I was capable of.
Do you have any pre-game rituals?
Picking out my swag for the game while I’m listening to Kodak Black and eating skittles. Just thinking about making plays for my team.
What is your biggest strength?
Biggest strength: Heart and Passion
What is your biggest weakness?
Biggest weakness: False step out of stance and Man Coverage
If I were a GM and gave you a second to sell yourself, what would you say?
I’ve never been the best I work hard and I got heart. All I need is a chance and I’ll prove anybody wrong.
Who was your favorite player and/or NFL team growing up?
Ray Lewis and Sean Taylor because they played with heart and passion. Favorite team is the Lions because I’m from Detroit.
If you could have dinner with three people dead or alive, who would you choose?
Ray Lewis, Martin Luther King Jr, Barack Obama
