Florida State redshirt freshman defensive end <b>Alex Boston</b> continues to make positive strides…
Boston Hopes to Turn the Corner
The sophomore pass-rusher felt like mat drills brought the front seven even closer together.
"I was impressed with the whole defensive line and linebackers," he said. "We kept pushing each other and I felt like there was a lot of camaraderie."
The 6-foot-3 and 265 pound Boston has also been working hard in the weight room. As a senior in high school, he weighed approximately 225 pounds.
"I added about 10 extra pounds from last year and I feel like I can maintain my speed and quickness," he said. "I can bench 355 pounds five times."
This spring Boston is entering the depth chart as the No.2 left defensive end but he hopes to finish spring on top.
"I hope to push Darrell and I hope he can push me as well," he said. "Whoever coach feels does the best job this spring will start. I feel like the competition will be good for the overall defense."
Last year, Boston spent some time with the baseball team but this year he's dedicated the whole year to work with the football team.
As a freshman in Garnet & Gold, he recorded three tackles and three quarterback pressures.
