Alex Jette was your prototypical slot receiver. He was tall and fast with great hands and the ability to score from anywhere on the field. He was the epitome of a team player. He ran the ball, caught passes, played great defense, was a return man and punted.
Alex was a threat to score every time he touched the football. The season opener his senior year against LaSalle is evidence. He finished that night with what his coach, Don Johnson, calls one of the most prolific performances ever: 264 yards rushing on just 7 carries with touchdown runs of 85 and 91 yards along with 112 yards receiving, including a 61 yard tunnel screen for a TD on the first play of the season.
As a sophomore he spent most of his time learning from fellow hall of famer Danny Johnson. As a junior Alex began to show his play making ability and versatility. He carried the ball 78 times for 471 yards and 4 touchdowns and caught 7 passes for 90 yards and 3 touchdowns. Defensively, he recorded 28 tackles with 3 assists. He intercepted 2 passes, returning them for a total of 137 yards, and a touchdown.
As a senior, he was explosive. He carried the ball 50 times for 515 yards and 4 touchdowns and caught 16 passes for 340 yards and 4 touchdowns, an average of 12.9 yards every time he touched the ball on offense. Defensively, he notched 14 tackles and 2 assists while intercepting one pass. For his career, he touched the ball 187 times, totaling 1,909 yards and 20 touchdowns. He average 10.2 yards per touch. He punted 38 times, averaging 36 yards per punt.
Alex’s favorite memory in high school was a wild game versus Stoughton. With seconds remaining and a tie score, he launched himself off the edge to block a would be game winning field goal. Big Red went on to win in a rare overtime game. After high school, Alex went on to play at Brown University where he had an excellent career as a receiver and punt returner.
