Bluestone High School senior offensive and defensive tackle Alex Hardy signed a letter of intent on April 4 to continue his football and academic career at Livingstone College in Salisbury, N.C.

At 5’11” and 295 pounds, Hardy was rock-solid for Bluestone this past season, recording multiple solo and assisted tackles. With the ability to deliver a devastating hit, Hardy’s skills and willingness to learn should make him a good fit for the Blue Bears.

Barons head coach Harry John said Hardy set goals and worked to achieve them: “Alex set a goal and went after it. He was determined to move on to the next level and I wish him all the best at his new home. This is surely just one of many great goals ‘Tank’ will accomplish in the years to come.”

The Livingstone football program finished the 2018 season with record of 3-6, 1-5. The Blue Bears are members of the CIAA.
