by - Assoc. Editor -

Former Clemson defensive back and Vikings' rookie Mackensie Alexander was honored on Tuesday with the key to Collier County and 'Mackensie Alexander Day' for all of his hard work and achievements.

Alexander was born and raised in Immokalee, Florida which is a small community of 20,000 along Alligator Alley between Miami and Naples.

Alexander did not give up a touchdown to the receiver he was assigned to cover over his last 23 games of his college career. He was a second-team All-American and first-team All-ACC in 2015.

The Tigers with Alexander were the number two defense in the country in passes completed holding opponents to 47.6 completion percentage. In 638 snaps this past season, QBs completed only 11 passes vs. Alexander and he also had 23 tackles and two tackles for loss.
