(G-A-M-E). At the age of 12 "Alex" fell ill and was diagnosed with highly fatal heart condition Left Ventricular Hypertrophy. He would return to competitive sports and hit 3 home runs and steal many bases---earning him a spot of the NASA Area Little League Baseball All-Star team. Nearly a year later, Alex fell gravely ill again. At the age of 13, he was diagnosed with the potential silent killer Juvenile Diabetes. Taking 4 injections of insulin a day, he returned to the football field that season and scored many touchdowns. He received "Offensive Player of the Year" award. In 2017, after being diagnosed with Stage 2 Kidney Disease, Alex was ranked as one of the top fastest Sophomores in the state for Track and Field.
Alex has launched a national campaign encouraging other youth diagnosed with serious and/or chronic illness to (G-A-M-E). GET-ACTIVE-MENTALLY-EXCEL. Alex says, "Many parents panic when their child is diagnosed with a serious or chronic illness thinking that competitive sports may not be good for their child. I want to lead by example to show that children can be diagnosed with a heart condition and play baseball and run track. A child with Type 1 Diabetes can continue to play football." Alex hopes to continue setting an example by playing competitive sports in college.
