Interview With a Griffin: Varsity Football Player Alex Redmond

Committed to the University of Oregon, Redmond, a 17-year-old Los Alamitos High School senior, said he plays for his family name.

It’ll be the Griffins vs. the Knights Thursday as Los Alamitos High School faces Lynwood High School.

(By the way, how about a movie about real griffins fighting real knights? You’re welcome, Hollywood.)

Note to parents: As you are no doubt aware, there are more than 10 players on a varsity football team.  

Unfortunately, since we only had a limited amount of time, we interviewed only 10 players for this profile thingamajig.  

However, if you would like us to profile your varsity Los Alamitos High School football player, send an email to paige.austin@patch.com.

We’ll send you a list of questions. You have your player answer ‘em, you send us a pic and, time permitting, we’ll run it. 

Go Griffins!
