Steve Sanders comments: "I like Alex's expression. That's what really does it for me—that determination, that feeling of accomplishment. He just got in the end zone. You can see he's cheering. He knew he was going to get into the end zone when he's running. He's hovering over the line and the ball's already crossed the plane. You can tell he's ready to celebrate. This is very unique because Alex always has such a calm demeanor to him, and to show that emotion out of him is pretty unique."
