Video: Alex Poythress Puts in Work… at Wendy’s

The only McDonald’s All-American ever to work at Wendy’s?

by Rodger Bohn / @rodgerbohn

While rolling through Tennessee for the Penny Hardaway Hoopfest with our friends from CityLeagueHoops, we stopped in Clarksville, TN, to check out an exclusive workout with Kentucky recruit Alex Poythress. The workout wound up starting a little later than anticipated because Alex was still at work. At work where? Wendy’s, making him perhaps the only McDonald’s All-American ever to work at the popular fast food chain.

Check the video above for a sneak peek of the workout along with Alex telling SLAMonline about his part-time job and what he absolutely hates making on the menu.

    i’ve always wondered why we never hear high school and college players hold down real jobs and just chucked it up to under the table deals. this is good to read

    Well honestly alot of other high school players don’t actually have time for a job and school and basketball. I wonder how his grades are.

    This cat is super nice. I think he’s going to be better than MKG was this season (at least offensively)


    His burger flip and press skills are off the charts. lol

    His grades are good! He is ranked number 9 in his class and takes tough AP courses. All this while working hard on the court and holding down a job. Super young man!
