2009 Profile: Kentavious Alford
Kentavious AlfordAlford, a 5-10, 175-pounder with 4.5 speed, played linebacker for the Rams' state championship team last season. He led the squad with 110 tackles and five sacks playing a position that many feel he is undersized for but you can't argue with the results which included being named to the LSWA Class 4A All-State Team. When it comes to thinking about the next level, Alford feels that he will have to play another position than the one he has occupied at Bastrop and he already has a pair in mind. "I feel I'll be better off playing safety or cornerback," he said. "Most people say I'm too small to play linebacker at the next level so I think safety would be a good fit. I am quick and I have good feet. I react real well and I played it a little bit during our season in certain packages." Alford said he has not picked up any offers that he knows of and it's a policy at Bastrop to not discuss them until after the spring. He knows of some schools that are interested but that should pick up quite a bit during the May Evaluation Period. "I've talked to Tulane and they said they were real interested but they didn't say anything about an offer," Alford said. "I get mail from Colorado, Texas A&M, Houston and a few more schools too." When it comes to finding a school that will be his home for the next four or five years Alford has some certain criteria that he will be looking to meet. "A good academic program is No. 1 on my list of priorities and a great football program is second," he said. "We've been real successful and I want to be able to continue that success at the next level.
