As part of our series of interviews with former Syracuse Orange athletes, we sat down for a SportsCastr Live talk with former Syracuse offensive lineman Lou Alexander. Lou played two seasons in Syracuse (2011 and 2012) after transferring from College of the Canyons. After college he went into sales, and last spring embarked on a new journey founding the Big A88 Jogger brand and using running and fitness to spread positivity.

Steve and I talked to Lou about his time in Syracuse. We learned how the Orange convinced a player from California to travel east and Lou gives us great insight into what Syracuse did to their offense before the 2012 season. Trust us it’s crazier than we were told. Lou shared his thoughts on playing for Doug Marrone and playing with a talented group of Orange as they battled that difficult 2012 schedule.

We also heard from Lou how he came up with the inspiration to found Big A88 Jogger. He shares with us what he’s bringing from his athletic days to his newest venture and how he sees his business as more than just promoting fitness, but promoting inclusion and individual success.

You can see Lou’s motivation in action by following him on Instagram and be on the lookout for new Big A88 Jogger apparel coming later this week.
