If you think Lorenzo Alexander is a fierce competitor on the football field, then you should see him at the bowling alley.

Alexander — the Redskins’ middle linebacker and special teams standout — will be hosting his fourth annual Lorenzo Alexander ACES Foundation Celebrity Bowling event at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 5, at 300 Shady Grove in Gaithersburg, Md.

The event will feature your favorite Redskins players bowling with raffle prizes, a silent auction, food and non-alcoholic beverages.

This year, the event is being co-hosted by former Redskins wide receiver Antwaan Randle El, as the funds collected will help both Alexander’s ACES Foundation and Randle El’s El Foundation scholarship funds for Washington, D.C., metro-area students.

Both foundations “strive to provide life-changing opportunities for youth” by inspiring students to obtain higher education, maintain a strong family unit and give back to their communities, according to Alexander’s website.

Alexander said he’s always happy to provide troubled youth with positive role models.

“We want to expose them to people that come from similar neighborhoods and backgrounds as them,” he said. “We want them to see outside of the drugs and violence that may be going on in their communities, and just provide them with a support system in addition to what their teachers and those at home at giving them.”

As for his bowling game, Alexander said he’s looking to continue his strong play against Randle El, his former teammate.

“This is a very deep rivalry, but I dominate him more than he beats me,” Alexander said.

Randle El was not immediately available to confirm that fact.

300 Shady Grove is a “beautiful facility,” according to Alexander. It’s located at 15720 Shady Grove Road in Gaithersburg, Md.
