All along Kutztown University was the choice for Exeter senior Alex Dundore. After starring on the Exeter Township High School football team, he was ready to join the college ranks at K.U.
Then he was invited to visit the campus at Bloomsburg University. With nothing to lose, Dundore decided to check it out.
He was sold. He bonded well with Head Coach Danny Hale and the defensive secondary coach Chet Henicle. He will be a defensive back at Bloomsburg and will also have a chance to return kicks.
“I saw the campus and Bloomsburg and it didn’t take me long to change my mind,” said Dundore. “I loved the campus there and really got along well with the coaches. I knew that’s where I wanted to go.”
Playing in the secondary for Exeter, Dundore also spent time on the offensive side of the ball. As a wide receiver he led the team in receptions with 15 of them for 399 yards. That’s an average of 26.6 yards per catch.
Exeter Head Coach Matt Bauer understands the kind of player Dundore was while playing for him. He will certainly be missed next year.
“Alex was the most talented, unselfish and hard working kid I ever coached,” said Bauer. “I’m just thankful for having the opportunity to have coached him. He was very dedicated to his game and loyal to the program.”
Dundore isn’t sure how much, or if he’ll be playing this coming fall. There is a possibility he will be red-shirted this year. That’s fine with him. He’ll do whatever it takes for him to contribute to the team when he gets his chance to play.
“If I’m red-shirted, that’s all right with me,” he said. “I’ll just work out hard and bulk up so when I come back the following year, I’ll be ready to play.”
If he does have to sit out a year, it will be a long wait for Dundore. He’s very excited for the chance to play at the college level and he’s more than ready to go.
“I’m nervous about playing at that level, but I’m also excited,” said Dundore. “I can’t wait to get there.”
Dundore will be playing for a team that has been very successful in recent years. The Huskies have had 10 or more wins in four of the last six season for the Bisons and have won at least seven games since 1999.
“Bloomsburg has a winning tradition and that’s one of the things that attracted me,” said Dundore. “I feel good about my decision.”
