Like most, Alden Forrester was a small town kid with big dreams. He dreamt of being a firefighter, an astronaut, an archaeologist, the list goes on and on. It wasn’t until his 7th birthday, the day that he was surprised with plane tickets to watch his favorite team, the Arizona Cardinals play in person, at their home stadium that he knew what he truly wanted to do with his life.
He enrolled in flag football, and worked his way up the ranks learning every position, and every playbook he had the opportunity to learn. It wasn’t until eighth grade, when he finally hit his growth spurt, that he knew he found his place on the d-line.
Finishing out his junior year, he only had JuCo offers, and that wasn’t enough and pushed him to work even harder. Coming out of his senior year, he set several school and state records, and led his team to their first state championship. He’s grown into a true force, and mastered the game of football, and now? He’s excited to conquer what comes next and see where he ends up playing the game he loves – true, old fashioned , college football.
