Not a lot of folks know about one of the top junior’s in the state, as he plays for the small 4A coastal school of Seaside. That said as Alex Teubner has absolutely dominated the competition over the last two seasons, recently earning Cowapa Conference Offensive Player of the Year honors in 2017.
The standout originally from Texas went off again for the Seagulls rushing for 1,617 yards and 21 total TDs on 174 carries this season. Teubner earned back to back 1st team all conference DB accolades, helping to solidify himself as one of the top dual threat kids in Oregon.
Alex has made significant strides this early off season being selected to play for EForce, the state’s elite all star 7v7 organization. His ability to compete and do well against D1 projected athletes has made everyone stand up and take notice.
Expect to hear a great deal about Teubner over the next few months. His Oregon all star team will travel to Oakland, California on March 3rd & 4th followed by a trip to Los Angeles for another regional tournament a few weeks later. These opportunities should help counter some of the small town stigma that is applied when referencing 4A competition
Speaking on some of his goals for this off season and beyond Alex says, “I am working year round, grinding in the weight room and out on the field to put myself in a position to be a D1 football player”. Adding, “Our team is hungrier than ever after an upset loss to end last season, as we have our sights set on bringing home a state championship.” Seaside finished (7-3) last year and should be considered a contender heading into 2018.
His versatility doesn’t end on the field as he is also a standout in the classroom, carrying a 3.9 GPA. You will see Teubner listed as a player of the year favorite on both sides of the football within the conference and potentially the state.
Last but not least Alex gives praise to Mr and Mrs Leary saying, “They run our weight room almost on a volunteer basis, and are responsible for a large part of my individual success and the teams.” We will keep you posted as the off season progresses.
