Alex Staten: Ocean Township High School Football: 2027 Athlete dominates Boardwalk Beasts 7v7 tryout !!!
Alex Staten, a 2027 at Ocean Township High School in Ocean, New Jersey recently attended workout number 2 for the BoardWalk Beasts 7v7 club and he sure made the most of it with his football performance. He stood out among the over 75 athletes in attendance. This was the 2nd event put on by NUC Sports and Boardwalk Beasts 7v7’s for the 2024 spring season. Alex who was on the U14 squad last year looks to return bigger and better this season.
Staten, a 2027 Prospect, had a tremendous day dominating his competition. He is a natural athlete that can line up all over the field and make a difference. He can play WR from both the outside and the slot as well as line up as a RB in the backfield or split out in a wide formation. Defensively, he can cover from any position making him a reliable asset. He possesses top notch foot work and can cover from both corner, nickel, and safety positions. At 5.9” 145 lbs, he plays bigger than he is and continues to mature and grow. Alex has tremendous speed and agility, not only breakaway ability but pure straight on speed allowing him to run by defenders or use his excellent lateral movement to get open.
This isn’t the first time Alex has performed at a high level regard NUC Sports, he recently attended the NUC All-American Game where he was clearly one of the best players. Staten showcased his ability to change direction and his excellent athleticism during the agility station portion of the workout. Players went through a variety of drills to showcase their overall agility ability. He had great quickness and tremendous lateral movement. He possesses an innate skill and smoothness in his ability to change direction.
Staten immediately made it known that he was there to prove he belongs by playing fast. His releases and speed off the line gave him the ability to then get in and out of breaks as a WR and make plays on the ball from both the outside and inside WR positions. He displayed excellent body control and strong hands catching passes and attacking the football.
In terms of physical ability, speed may be his best attribute. He hands down separated himself from other players coming in with a WIN at All Cost mindset. He used his shiftiness to keep hands off of him at the line of scrimmage, displaying his ability to beat opponents. Staten made one of the best plays of the day, leaping over a defender in the corner of the endzone for a big time catch.
This guy will bring a big time competitive edge to the U15 squad. A returning player he has the experience and knowledge of the game, not to mention he will be playing with his own High School teammate in Jake Garrett. His ability to help and play multiple positions gives him the opportunity to see more reps and more plays. I look for this guy to be a big time leader and represent the Culture that has been built over the years!
A little Q & A !!!
Why Football ?
“I chose football because growing up from the time I was 3 I loved the thrill the game brought. My idol and inspiration is my Dad and he put the ball in my hands and it brought me peace when I would watch or play. It brought me comfort and joy through the many ups and downs with injuries, wins, losses but the people are what make this game great, the people I have met along the way are helping me to not only be a better player but w better man!”
How do you feel playing with the Boardwalk Beast will help you next season ?
“I think playing for the Beasts can help me because of the bonds I have formed with the coaches, they recognize my talent and potential and its appreciated throughout the year. I feel the team can help with opportunities at the next level!”
