Biography

Goldmine

  • On Friday, October 30, 2015, Alexander was relaxing at his apartment with teammates, just days away from what would be just his seventh career NFL game, when he received one of the most dreadful calls one could experience. His little brother, Broderick, had been involved in a confrontation with a man who decided to pull out a gun and use it. “He’s gone,” Kwon heard his mother say over the phone. Broderick was less than a month away from his 18th birthday. He had always looked up to Kwon, and the two shared a bond as strong as ever. “I walked straight out to the patio, laid down on one of the lounge chairs by the pool, pulled out my phone and started looking at text messages,” Alexander said in an article he composed for The Players Tribune. “I found Lil’ Brod’s old messages and started scrolling through them — until I saw one from him that jumped off the screen. ‘I love you bro.’ I stared at it for I don’t know how long, and then I put my phone down, looked up at the sky and cried until I couldn’t cry anymore.” Alexander then booked a flight home to be with his family as they made plans for Broderick’s funeral, but his mother wouldn’t allow it. They agreed that even Broderick, as his number one supporter, would have wanted him to play. So, two days later, Kwon not only played, but he played the game of his life. In the first quarter of the game, with his team down 3-0, Alexander caught up to a streaking Falcons WR Julio Jones and in one instance ripped the ball clean out of his hands and took off the other way for a 20-yard return. Next, in the second quarter, Alexander intercepted a pass by Falcons QB Matt Ryan and returned the ball for 15 yards. At the end of the victory, his then-career-high 11 tackles, forced fumble, fumble recovery and interception earned him not only the game ball, but the respect of his teammates. “All I wanted was to be with my family, but I had a second family right there to pick me up,” Alexander said. “It was highest of highs and the lowest of lows, at the exact same moment.”
  • In June of 2019, Alexander hosted a free football camp in Hobson City, AL for kids ages 8-17. His camp featured football drills, free food and giveaways and was sponsored by The Kwon Alexander Foundation, a non-profit organization, that supports youth in need in the greater Anniston, AL community. Kwon and his foundation host mentorship programming and educational workshops throughout the year.
