Despite being the only fullback invited to the 2019 NFL Combine, Alec Ingold went undrafted and actually accepted a job offer from a tech company before finally receiving a call from the Oakland Raiders. Ingold went on to become a key contributor to the Raiders offense and was named a team captain in his third year, however a torn ACL ended his season and eventually his tenure in silver and black. Ingold did not skip a beat, however, signing with the Miami Dolphins this offseason and has been making an impact on and off the field ever since.
In The Tank, Alec raves about being a part of the Dolphins explosive offense (3:34) and relishes this opportunity to “reinvent” the fullback position (6:24). He goes on to explain how being passed over in the draft forced him to develop a drive that still fuels him to this day (10:59). Alec also opens up about being adopted and the internal struggle associated with that experience (14:49), and proudly discusses his Ingold Foundation, its programs, and his passion for impacting young people (19:14), while explaining his goals for community work in South Florida (23:24). Miami’s starting fullback also looks back on his ACL injury, the affect it had on him, and how he chose to respond to it, (26:36), before wrapping up the interview with The Fish Tank Two-Minute Drill (32:40).
