Alex Carroll was born and raised in Victoria, BC. Growing up in the seaside community of Cadboro Bay, Alex attended the local public schools: Frank Hobbs, Arbutus, and Mt Douglas. Through these formative years, he developed an immense love for, and pride in, his hometown.
From the age of 7, football was Alex’s passion. He played in the Victoria Minor Football League up until High School where he won a Provincial Championship with the Mt. Doug Rams. Garnering national attention from scouts at Canadian Universities, Alex chose to accept a scholarship from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. Across the span of the next 4 years at Queen’s, Alex completed a Bachelor of Arts with Honours in Political Science, forged lifelong relationships, overcame adversity, and was a sprinter on the Track and Field Team. He capped his time with the football program as the leader in all of Ontario University (OUA) football in receptions, yards, and touchdowns for the 2014 Season (2nd in the nation). He was an OUA All-Star Receiver and Kick-Returner.
Subsequently, Alex was signed by the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the Canadian Football League in the spring of 2015 where he began his professional career. His first 2 receptions in the CFL were touchdowns, one coming in the preseason, and the next on August 22nd, against the Calgary Stampeders. In the spring of 2017, Alex was signed by the Montreal Alouettes, but suffered a season ending knee injury in the preseason.
Having been an athlete his whole life, Alex loves all aspects of physical activity, health, and wellness. Don’t be surprised if you see him sprinting the stadium steps at UVIC, weightlifting, playing basketball, golfing, or playing volleyball on the beach in Cadboro Bay. He aspires to continue to be involved in the Football community in Victoria by both coaching and training young athletes. It’s a game that has inspired so much growth in his life and he hopes can do the same for others.
Alex has succeeded in every path he has followed. Throughout his journey in football, a formula of resilience persisted. Every achievement was the result of hard work, dedication, and sacrifice. He translates this same attitude and skill set to Real Estate, to go above and beyond for his clients. With a passion for this beautiful city, relationships he has formed throughout Victoria and across Canada, and a modern perspective on Real Estate Marketing, Alex’s promise is to provide high-level service with honesty, integrity, and unsurpassed work-ethic.
