Alvarez Commits to Louisiana
"The only other program I visited this fall was McNeese State," Alvarez stated. "I had come in to UL earlier during the season, but we really didn't have the opportunity to look around because I was late arriving to the game. McNeese has a nice program, but it just didn't feel right to me and I decided to come back in to UL to get a look around. Once they decided to offer me, I felt pretty comfortable with my decision to go ahead and commit to the program."
Alvarez, a member of the First Team 6-3A All-District Team hit on 40-of-40 extra-point attempts and 6-of-12 field-goal attempts including one from 53-yards. During the summer, he attended several camps including the Kohl's Kicking Camp in Wisconsin. KohlsKicking.com has him rated as the nation's 44-th best prep kicker in the country.
"I only attended two camps this summer, the LSU Kickers Camp and the Kohl's Kicking Camp in Wisconsin," said Carlos. "I took advantage of the instruction given at both camps because we really don't have a coach instructing you in high school. The drills I learned helped me work on the fundamentals every day in football practice."
Carlos also punted this season for West St. Mary, but was recruited as a kicker by the UL staff.
"I did both in high school," Alvarez stated. "But the coach at UL told me they want me to focus on kicking in college, that's the position I can helped the program most coming in as a freshman."
Carlos Alvarez currently holds a accumulative 3.0 GPA, but is awaiting test results of his most recent ACT.
