Name: Alex Schoen
Hometown: Short Hills, NJ
High School: Millburn HS
2013 Stats: Schoen appeared in six games for the Orange last year in special teams duty.
2014 Projections: Probably more of the same. He's buried on the cornerback depth chart and there's more secondary recruits incoming.
How'd He Get Here?: Schoen joined the team as a walk-on receiver last year but was quickly moved to cornerback. At Millburn, he racked up 812 rushing yards and nine total touchdowns on just 91 carries for a gaudy 8.92 yards per carry. He also registered 22 total tackles and six interceptions on defense.
What'd Scout/Rivals Say?: Nothing.
Money Quote: "My favorite memories of my high school career are not winning games, scoring touchdowns or winning face-offs. It's the great times I've had and the relationships I've created with my teammates that will last a lifetime."
Links Of Wonder: If you're a Millburn High School Varsity Club Athlete of Year, you probably attend Syracuse now.
Tweets of Wonder: Alas, his tweets are private.
What Does Scott Shafer Think Of Him: Shafer loves walk-ons, you know that.
Interesting Nugget O'Interest: Schoen is a helluva lacrosse player and there was a thought that he might end up as SU's new FOGO. However, he is not, as of yet, on the squad.
