WitP: Alex Green

Chawan Cut is back! He compiles the local Shrine Game news, which has some Alex Green highlights.

Despite some of the bad reviews Green got, mainly due to his fumbles, he also impressed some folks.

National Football Post:
Four players who helped their stock were Mount Union wide receiver Cecil Shorts (made quick breaks and showed good hands), Hawaii running back Alex Green (displayed a nice combination of power and burst, and he looks versatile), Buffalo cornerback Josh Thomas (showed quick feet), and Boise State cornerback Brandyn Thompson (displayed ball skills).
NFL Draft Bible:
Hawaii’s Alex Green was a true revelation for those watching him for the first time. Outside of an ill-advised fumble on the opening drive, the 6’0”, 220-pound bruiser proved to be a load to handle for opposing defenders.

Green had a few five and six-yard runs straight up the gut. However, he was truly outstanding on a 3rd-and-2 handoff in which he ran behind his pads to gain the necessary yardage, but then lowered his shoulder to drive his opponents back to gain a little extra.

The former Rainbow also showcased a decent set of hands by coming back to an underthrown Scott Tolzien pass in the first quarter.
Alex Green, Hawaii’s two time 1000 yard tailback (sic), fumbled on the opening snap for the West, but showed better hands in the passing game. He ran with power in between the tackles, showcasing his 220+ pound frame.
