Mayfield Sports once again teamed up with Gross Motors to give local Packer fans a chance to meet one of their favorites. Cornerback Jaire Alexander talked with fans, signed autographs, and posed for pictures as part of Gross Motors of Marshfield’s Customer Appreciation Celebration.
“Jaire, with his personality, is always fun to be around,” shared Mark Mayfield, owner of Mayfield Sports, “and anytime you can bring a first-round pick, having the season Jaire had last year to meet the fans is going to be a blast. Mike and Jodi do a great job of hosting these events and we’re always excited when we can get things like this scheduled.”
An Impressive First Year for Jaire Alexander
Debuting against the Chicago Bears in the Green Bay Packer’s season-opener, Jaire posted three solo tackles during the Packer’s 24-23 win. He earned his first half-sack the following week during the teams tie with the Minnesota Vikings and his first career interception in week four in a game the Packer’s easily won 22-0 against the Buffalo Bills.
In total, Alexander finished the 2018 season with 11 starts, one quarterback hit along with a half-sack, 11 pass breakups, one interception, three tackles that resulted in lost yardage, and 66 total tackles. He led the Packers in defended passes while finishing second in total tackles behind Blake Martinez and being recognized by Pro Football Focus as the NFL cornerback with the highest percentage of contested passes during the 2018 season.
