  • Alvin was a top flight safety that the Redskins sniped in the 3rd round of the 86 draft.
  • There wasn’t a ton of tape on Alvin since he had academic issues while playing CB at Kansas.
  • Started 4 games his rookie campaign at S and paid immediate dividends, raking in 75 tackles.
  • Had 2 interceptions in 87, and led team in tackles with 148.
  • An enforcer on the line of scrimmage, racked up 11 tackles for loss that season.
  • In ’88, had monstrous campaign putting together 196 total tackles, 3 picks, and a sack.
  • Again, had a team high in tackles in ’89 with 137, and led team with 4 interceptions, including 1 for a TD- despite missing 3 games due to injury.
  • In ’90, returned a Cardinals interception 57 yards for a TD, and led the team for a 4th consecutive year with 143 tackles.
  • 1991 was largely a wash after suffering a shoulder injury during the contest against the Cowboys in week 2.
  • Lost out in a numbers game during camp in 1992 and was cut.
  • Out of football 3 years, reemerged with the Baltimore Stallions of the CFL in 1994 playing LB.
  • Helped the team win the Grey Cup, in 1995 recording 38 tackles- retiring after the season.


Alvin had some great cards during his time in the NFL. I mean on top of this he still had a great Pro Set ’89 and some other set needs. I had been looking for him for a bit, and was happy to get these back in no time flat.
