Bobcats round out golf roster with North Murray graduate
Spend just a few minutes with Spencer Alexander and you quickly realize that three things are definitely important to him - golf, education and family - and not necessarily in that order.
Alexander took all three things into account when deciding his immediate college future and that decision was finalized on Tuesday (June 26) as the recent North Murray High School grad signed on to play for Coach Eddie Jackson and the Georgia Northwestern Bobcats in front of family and friends at Spring Lakes Golf Club in Chatsworth.
“This day means a lot to me and my family,” Alexander said. “They’ve always been behind me, my dad and my mom both. At the end of the day I just want to make them happy and make our team a little bit better. The most important thing though is my education. It will give me a chance to help support my family in the future.”
Alexander said he couldn’t wait to start playing alongside his newest teammates, many of whom he already knows from his time on the course.
“All of us are friends,” he said. “When you go out there with all your friends, you know that they are behind you and they are supporting you. I like (Georgia Northwestern) and the fact that it’s a two-year school. I can go there, get my education, stay at home and help take care of my granny.”
Alexander just finished up a solid career with the Mountaineers,
