Earlier this year, newly appointed manager Justin Evans went down to the USL combine in Charleston looking for some talent. He came away with a possible gem in Weekes. We've only heard a few things here and there but by all accounts the kid tore up the combine flashing skill as a holding mid. He looked dangerous as a midfielder in the preseason, helping the Riverhounds go undefeated. However, it was his ability to play as a forward that turned heads in 2008 at the collegiate level. In the midst of a goal scoring drought, his coaches played him up front and he never looked back. Despite Alex showcasing his midfield skills early on, and the Hounds mired in a bit of an offensive slump themselves, it looks like Evans may be going back to what's worked in the past. Weekes started at forward alongside sniper Chad Severs this past weekend when the Hounds hosted the Richmond. The game ended in another draw. Tthe Hounds remain undefeated despite looking for their first victory of the 2010 campaign.
