Former Georgetown Standout Alex Buzbee Added to Redskins Active Roster

Dec. 19, 2007

Washington, D.C. - Christmas came a little early for former Georgetown University All-American football player Alex Buzbee. Buzbee received the greatest Christmas present of all on Thursday afternoon when he was added to the active roster of the Washington Redskins.

Buzbee, wearing No. 90, will take the field with the Redskins (7-7) as they face the Minnesota Vikings (8-6) on Sunday, December 23 at the Metrodome in Minnesota. Kickoff is slated for 8:15 p.m. (ET).

Buzbee was signed to a free agent contract during the summer. He was one of the final cuts after preseason camp and has spent most of the season on the team's practice squad.

A 6-3, 265-pound defensive end, Buzbee capped off a stellar career at Georgetown in 2006 when he was named an honorable mention All-America by the Don Hansen Football Gazette. He earned All-Patriot League honors for the third-straight season in 2006, taking a spot on the first team after two-straight seasons in which he earned second team honors. Buzbee finished tied for second on the team, and was 11th in the Patriot League, with 75 tackles. The 75 tackles were a career-high for Buzbee, who finished his four years on the Hilltop with 176 stops.

In addition, Buzbee was tied for the team and Patriot League lead in tackles-for-loss with 13.0 (for 53 yards) and was second in the conference with 5.5 sacks.

He finished his career with 45.5 tackles-for-loss and 27.5 sacks, which ranks third in Georgetown history. Buzbee was a recipient of the prestigious No. 35 Joe Eacobacci Memorial Jersey this season, presented annually to the most exemplary member of the team in honor of a former player killed in the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.
