Workman was coached by Craig Turner who was loved by so many of his players. Coach Turner had a great impact on Workman’s football career at Brookville and has become a dear lifelong friend. They enjoy reminiscing about the games they shared throughout Alex’s football career and are very grateful for the bond that they have created over the years.
Workman unexpectedly gained the nickname “The Hammer” the first game of his junior year and was reminded of that many years later when he received an unexpected package in the mail one day from retired P.E. teacher Denny Kinsel. In the package was a white towel that said, “The Hammer.” This towel was waved during many Friday Night Football games at Brookville Memorial Stadium. Many local people, like Mr. Kinsel enjoyed watching Alex and his “brothers of fall” all four years on the football field. He made many outstanding, crowd pleasing, record holding tackles.
After graduating from Brookville High School, Alex volunteered to serve his country in the United States Navy. In the Navy he was a Corpsman and was stationed with both Navy and Marine Corps. He was deployed to serve in Somalia.
More recently Workman earned an electrician certificate and has been working with electric for many years. He takes great pride in working for a local small business owner out of Lewisburg, Dan Huffman with Huffman Brother’s Construction, running audio/video wiring.
Workman currently resides in Brookville. He is married to Stacy (Wilson) and is the proud father of two beautiful children. Alex and Stacy have been together for 20 years and married for 17 of those. Stacy is also an alumnus of BHS, Class of 1994, and is a nurse at a local hospital in the Dayton area where she serves in the field of women’s health.
His daughter, Juliana, is 27-years-old and a graduate of Brookville, Class of 2011. Juliana is in the area with her son, Charlie, who is Alex’s grandson. Alex and Stacy’s son Cade is currently a freshman at Brookville High School.
