Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, Alex Albright did not grow up wearing cowboy boots or riding on the back of a horse, but on a photo shoot at Travassa, he was game and ended up enjoying a taste of the equine experience. Albright attended Boston College on a football scholarship, where he played for five seasons, having to take a year off in 2008 due to a spinal injury.
His senior year, he was named team captain and graduated in 2010 with a degree in communication. He was signed by the Dallas Cowboys as a free agent in July 2011, and played with the team until an injury placed him on the waived/injure list in August 2013.
As a rookie, Albright was converted to outside linebacker, a position he played backup for in all 16 games, finishing third on the team with 14 special-teams tackles. In the 2012 season, he showed his versatility, backing up all four linebackers, and finished the season third on the team with 17 special-teams tackles. He is currently a free agent.
Courtney Shields and Alex Albright were wed May 24 at The Vista on Seward Hill. They currently reside in Dallas.
