NFL Legend David Alexander Talks Coaching His Alma Mater With HSFA

There’s no doubt that David Alexander is having a blast as the head football coach at Broken Arrow High School, outside of Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Alexander, who graduated from Broken Arrow in 1982, spent ten years as an offensive lineman in the National Football League with the Philadelphia Eagles and New York Jets. 

He returned to his alma mater as a running backs coach before taking over the job of head coach in 2014. Now in his seventh season as the head of the school’s football program, Alexander has built the Tigers into an annual contender for the Oklahoma state championship.

The highlight of his coaching career, to this point, came in 2018 when he led Broken Arrow to its first ever high school football state championship. The team finished that season ranked No. 13 in the High School Football America 100 national high school football rankings.

Below, you can listen to Coach Alexander talk with High School Football America’s Jeff Fisher about his love of the game from high school to the NFL and back.
