Alexander turns in top Nike performance

It doesn’t have to be football season for the North Little Rock Charging Wildcats to make news. Kavin Alexander was one of 13 Charging Wildcats to make an impact in the Nike SPARQ Combine in Dallas.

The upcoming Charging Wildcat senior was one of the athletes who coach Brad Bolding said “showed out.”

“We love to go to these competitions,” Bolding said. “We don’t have a lot to do this time of year, so it gives us a way to go compete.”

Alexander, a 5-foot-8, 182-pound defensive back recorded a 148.17 SPARQ Rating — the best all year.

His rating is also the second highest all-time SPARQ Rating.

Alexander’s record-setting mark came from a 4.36 time in the 40-yard dash, a 3.90 second 20 yard shuttle, a 40½ inch vertical and a 42½ foot power ball throw.

At last year’s Dallas Nike Football Training Camp, Alexander put up a 129.24 SPARQ Rating with a 4.54 in the 40, a 4.00 shuttle time and a 41.6 vertical.

The current junior is listed by 247 Sports as one of the top 10 prospects in Arkansas and has been hearing from Oklahoma, TCU and Oklahoma State, Alabama and Arkansas.

Curtis Parker also turned heads with a power ball throw of 53 feet.

“The combine could only measure up to 50 feet,” Bolding said. “Curtis has made them extend their rating out to 55.”
