New Orleans Saints
Legendary does not only sum up Kwon Alexander’s unique name, but his favorite word that he often uses to describe the various facets of his life. The Oxford, Alabama native dominated on the defensive end of the ball from a young age, and went on to be a four star recruit. A finalist for the High School Butkus Award, for the best linebacker in the nation, Kwon selected Louisiana State University for his collegiate years. Kwon played in seven games as a true freshman for the Tigers and proceeded to steadily work his way up to leading the team in tackles by his junior year.
A fourth round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and was named the starting middle linebacker his rookie season. Kwon went on to spend three additional seasons with the Buccs, before signing a lucrative contract with the San Francisco 49ers in March of 2019. A troubling 49ers team brought on a mid-season trade in the 2020 season, and Kwon Alexander was heading back ‘home’ to the south to play for the New Orleans Saints.
It comes as no surprise that Kwon describes his style as ‘Legendary.’ Kwon told ProTrending in his ‘Pro-Ssentials’ interview, that his dad had a huge impact on his style growing up and that he’s “constantly looking to elevate and amplify his style.” Kwon loves accessories, and adding custom pieces that make outfits uniquely his. His favorite designer is Greg Loren and he draws inspiration for his style from Virgil Abloh.
