Chapel Hill High School junior Alex Duncan found a way to extend his post-season in football.
On Jan. 29, Duncan competed in the National Underclassmen 7-on-7 tryouts, and he won the MVP for defensive backs after making the Elite 10 for the East Coast team.
Duncan, who completed his high school junior season at Chapel Hill with a game-winning interception against Asheboro, was invited to try out for the USA versus the World 2013 game held annually in Austin, Texas.
Earlier in January, he attended the US Army National Combine for the 500 top junior football players in the nation, part of the festivities for the US Army All-American game in San Antonio.
His best performance may have been in the Offense-Defense All-American Junior Showcase on Dec. 29, where he scored a touchdown with a 102-yard interception return in Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Dallas, Texas.
Duncan's East Team went on to win that game 45-0.
He'll be attending Junior Day at Princeton in April.Sports expo comes to Duke
