He became a 1st Team All American in 1994 and finished his career as the second leading pass reception leader in Seminole football history with 189 catches. He had 16 TD receptions and six games with more than 100 yards in receptions. He was an NFL receiver with the Detroit Lions for three seasons.

Ken Alexander came to FSU from Austin, Texas in 1990 and would team with fellow linebackers Marvin Jones and Derrick Brooks to create some of the best defenses in FSU history. His 285 career tackles placed him 14th in Seminole history after his senior season. In the 1993 National Championship year he was an Honorable Mention All-American and an Academic All-American. The NCAA honored him with its prestigious NCAA Post-Graduate Scholarship. He graduated from the FSU Law School and today is an attorney in Tallahassee.
