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.

Redskins Enjoy 3rd Annual ‘Ride 2 Provide’

Posted by Brian Tinsman on April 24, 2012 – 10:21 am

via @graceramirez

The forecast called for rain, but it was nothing but sun and smiles at Lorenzo Alexander’s “Ride 2 Provide” charity bike ride on Saturday.  Alexander and Kedric Golston hosted the event for the third year, and were joined by teammates Ryan Kerrigan, Niles Paul, Logan Paulsen, Rob Myers, as well as former Redskin Chris Wilson and the Hogettes.

And yes, Paulsen is shown wearing a light purple tutu.  No, I don’t know why–but I will find out.

The event raises money for wounded veterans recovering from their injuries, as well as Alexander’s ACES foundation.  Alexander was excited with the biker turnout, but really enjoyed the support of his teammates for his biggest annual event:

“It’s pretty cool to have your teammates out here supporting you,” Alexander said with a grin.  “A lot of guys have chosen to get involved and help me out, and it shows what type of men they are and what they’re all about.  The local media have created a great bond over the years, and those guys have come out to support me as well.

“It goes beyond football and the Redskins on a day-to-day basis,” he added.  “We’re about relationships and building a better community.”

Sign Ups For Alexander’s ‘Ride To Provide’

Posted by Brian Tinsman on March 19, 2012 – 12:55 pm

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

In what has become a springtime tradition, Redskins linebacker Lorenzo Alexander is hosting his third annual’ Ride To Provide’ bike riding event across scenic northern Virginia.  The date is Saturday, April 21, and sign-ups are now open at the event’s website.

Why the advanced warning?  It gives you time to dust off your bike from last year’s event, and get your knees and ankles back in working condition.

The bike ride is a fun and challenging event that lets both children, parents and the recreational and avid cyclist raise money for Lorenzo’s ACES Foundation and the Bethesda Cycling Program of Walter Reed and one of its specific programs, Ride 2 Recovery.

There are four different distances to ride: 10-mile ride, 20-mile ride, 35-mile ride and 53-mile ride.   Read more »

Alexander, Hooters Raise Money For ACES

Posted by Brian Tinsman on January 17, 2012 – 4:54 pm


Ever since the One Man Gang’s arrival in Washington in 2006, Lorenzo Alexander has been as dynamic in the Redskins community as he has on the field.  Together with his A.C.E.S. (Accountability, Community, Educational excellence, Sports) Foundation, Alexander has designed programs to guide the youth of the greater-Washington area.

Now, with the help of Hooters of Fairfax, he’s adding further academic programs to his slate of initiatives.  The idea is twofold:

1. Starting as soon as possible, the foundation will be offering an SAT prep program in collaboration with credential educators.  The foundation will offer the following 2 hour workshops to provide youth with information/resources needed to complete high school and prepare for a higher education (college, vocational training) or outline their personal goals:

• High School Graduation Requirements/College Entry Requirements

• SAT Preparation, Review, including:

• Problem Solving Techniques

• Test Taking Strategies

• College Essay Writing

• Scholarships / Financial Aid.

2. Also in the works is a school adoption and mentoring program, similar to the one run by London Fletcher’s organization, “London’s Bridge.”  Alexander and other foundation members would work with students to ensure that they had the guidance and resources to stay in school and stay on a path to success.

Both of these are inspired and necessary initiatives, and you have the opportunity to help see them happen.  Between now and Thursday night, you have a great excuse to go to Hooters of Fairfax, Va. and enter in a raffle sponsored by Alexander. Read more »

Redskins Players Out And About Today

Posted by Brian Tinsman on October 18, 2011 – 10:26 am

Tuesday’s are the NFL’s day of rest, but that doesn’t mean that players just kick back and relax.  The player parking lot was about half full when I pulled in at 9 a.m., and players will trickle in for workouts, treatments, and film study throughout the day.  No one is satisfied with the team’s performance from Sunday, but they’re putting it behind them and looking ahead to Carolina.

In case you’re out and about today, you may catch some other Redskins out at various events in the community.

Return specialist Brandon Banks was up early this morning to attend a Redskins Charitable Foundation event at Calverton Elementary School in Beltsville, Md.  He’ll be hanging out with the children between 8:15-10 a.m. as part of the United Way Day of Service, focusing on NFL Play 60 and fitness.

The Saga Of Lorenzo Alexander's Clemson Bike

Posted by Matt Terl on November 5, 2010 – 10:00 am

This is a Clemson bicycle. It briefly belonged to Redskins LB/DE/DT/special teams ace/all-around nice guy Lorenzo Alexander.

Although Alexander has been known to do some recreational biking, he didn’t go to Clemson. (He’s a proud Cal guy.) So he started asking around on Twitter who might like a Clemson bike. And if you’re a Redskins player on Twitter and you mention Clemson, it’s not going to take long before Huly’s name comes up. Read more »
