At just 21 years old, New York Jets defensive lineman Justin Alexandre is already primed for big things ahead.  A native of Elmont, New York, Alexandre is homegrown.

At the University of the Incarnate Word, Alexandre was quite the baller.  Standing at 6’5 and weighing 265 pounds, Alexandre has both the stance, the size and the presence to be a formidable defensive lineman.  In his senior season as an Incarnate Word Cardinal, Alexandre recorded a total of 55 tackles, 8.5 sacks and three forced fumbles in 11 games.  Alexandre was a part of the 2018 Southland Conference Football First Team.  His efforts earned him an invitation to the Gridiron Showcase in the 2018 postseason as a defensive end.

Alexandre is a player who has a ferocity and is truly a play-maker.  His energy is one that is contagious and through his exigent plays, he rallies the team win, loses or tie.  Alexandre is more than just a powerful player, he is rather quite adroit at the game of football in general and studies long and hard the game film to pick up on any patterns or tendencies he notices the opposing team’s offense has, so he knows how to take them down and ultimately defeat them.

Alexandre is close to his mother who has sadly been battling cancer.  Like his mother, Alexandre is a fighter and will stop at nothing to overcome any trials and tribulations life throws at him.  He is strong and agile and can truly be a threat.  At only 21 years old, Alexandre has already shown the maturation that NFL veterans possess!  It is only soon before Alexandre is a star!
