The Northern Kentucky Bengals Youth Sports Organization was founded in late 2016 as an alliance
between the Boone County Eagles and the boone county Hawkeyes.
Our mission is to develop a love and appreciation of the sports in our participants. Our goal is that they may gain life lessons
such as character, teamwork, discipline, respect and sportsmanship.
We desire for children participating in our organization to be in a positive environment and enjoy their experience while learning the game. We encourage fundamental development and improve individual and team player skill sets. We want to advance sportsmanship and teamwork in a fun, competitive environment.
Be your child's biggest fan. Show your support by attending their games and cheering for the team. We ask you as a NKY Bengals fan, that you conduct yourself in a positive manner at all times during games. We are excited for a great season!
Durran Alexander is excited to be a part of starting the Northern Kentucky Bengals Youth Sports organization. It was created to be a positive impact in the community and to live out its mission which is to have a positive environment that will develop life lessons in character, teamwork, discipline, self-respect, and respect for authority to aid in the academic, athletic and social success of student-athletes. Durran grew up playing youth sports in Northern Kentucky with his brother, Shaun Alexander, NFL MVP. He also had a love for music and played drums in the University of Notre Dame marching band. His love for the area he grew up in and his children Austin and Maleah are his motivation to coach and to create a positive atmosphere for every child who wants to learn and grow as an athlete and person. It is his passion to do everything he can, to make sure that the kids he coaches have a great experience, create amazing memories and most importantly impact them in a way that will give them a boost for their future. For the past 15 years, Durran has coached basketball, soccer, flag football and tackle football for many youth teams. He has experience in running organizations as he helped found the Shaun Alexander Family Foundation where he assisted in running the non profit and put on events as well. The past two years, Durran was named the Head Coach of the Boone County Eagles. Last year, he was able to bring the team to a 12-0 record and win the Super Bowl. His team also went to the Rocky Top tournament in Tennessee and won the 9U United Division National Championship. Durran will always teach the kids to work hard, but to have fun and enjoy every moment as well.
