Alexander’s biggest accomplishment as an athlete happened in 2014 at the USA games where he won gold in soccer alongside his team members. In addition to bocce and soccer, he has also competed in volleyball, basketball and track and field. During his time as an athlete, Alexander has had the chance to make new friends and learn discipline and team work. When he’s not training he likes to watch sports and work with the Rutgers Athletic Departed in the post office. In the future, Alexander hopes to keep working for the Rutgers Athletic Department and to stay involved as a Special Olympics athlete.
