Professional:

2013: Made his Red Bulls debut when he subbed on in the final minute of the season-opener against the Timbers on Mar. 3. Earned his first MLS start and scored his first New York goal one week later on Mar. 10 in a 2-1 loss to the San Jose Earthquakes.

2012: Picked up a career-high six assists in 24 appearances with the Timbers, 14 of which were starts. Also logged a career-best 1,302 minutes, 26 shots, and seven shots on frame.

2011: After starting in 16 of FC Dallas’ 22 matches, Alexander was traded to the Portland Timbers in exchange for defender/midfielder Jeremy Hall on Aug. 9. Alexander earned his first start as a Timber in a Sept. 24 match against the Red Bulls, before subbing off at halftime.

2010: Made his MLS debut on Mar. 27 as a sub, logging 35 minutes in Dallas’ 1-1 draw against Houston. Alexander made his first MLS start nearly four months to the day, when he debuted in the Starting XI against the Colorado Rapids on July 31 in a 1-1 finale. Registered his first career goal and assist on the same day in Dallas’ 3-1 win over DC United on Aug. 14. Followed up that performance with another one-goal, one-assist outing on Sept. 16 against the Red Bulls in a 2-2 draw. Closed out his first season in MLS with two goals and three assists, starting in 12 of his 17 appearances, and logging 1,054 minutes of playing time.

Collegiate/Club: Appeared in 91 matches and made 80 starts, finishing with 12 goals and 13 assists with the Indiana Hoosiers. Was a two-time, second team All-Big Ten selection, first-team All-Big Ten selection in 2007, and a unanimous pick for the Big Ten All-Freshman Team in 2006. Was also a standout in the classroom as a three-time Academic All-Big Ten selection. In his freshman year (2006), Alexander was recognized as the best freshman in the country by ESPN Soccernet.
