SELMA — Darion Alexander will bring a small piece of Alabama’s national championship to Selma High School this fall.

Alexander will be in Tuscaloosa on Saturday to participate in the Elite 11 quarterback camp. He also participated last year at the University of Georgia.

“It gives you a lot of exposure and you get to see where you stand,” Alexander said. “It’s a blessing to (work) with the national champions.”

The camp is a regional invitation only camp for senior quarterbacks and select juniors.

Alexander, who will be a junior this football season, said the camp is not only a chance to work on his technique, but will also help get the wheels rolling on the recruiting process.

“The top quarterbacks in the nation and a lot of college coaches are going to be there,” Alexander said. “I want the coaches to be able to see what I can do.”

Selma High School athletic director Patrick Evans said Alexander is a good leader and will be able to relay the lessons he learns to other Selma players.

“Everybody respects him,” Evans said. “He leads by example. This camp will teach him first hand what it takes to be a champion.”
