This blog is for educational purposes (although I feel like I learn just as much from your comments). Dig into the male POV (point of view) for hero and supporting cast, for good guys, bad and inbetween. Find gems or alternate ways of writing male POV.
When I give an opinion, it will be based first on scientific research (I was a research scientist).
Typically, I present videos from YouTube to bolster the point.

Some alphas are family men by training and/or inclination
think sports-stars are solitary alpha males. Well alphas, they may be. But
solitary they are not. They learn everyday they play or practice to rely on
others. You may see them make the big play but they work as part of the team
and know it. They will often credit their teammates when being interviewed and
they ain’t kidding.
may start their career carousing with the boys and taking on as many groupies
as their health will allow, but as they mature, they make excellent family men
because the best play for the team. These heroes you want on your character team.
you cared to describe this type of arc when writing your sports hero including back-story?
Excellent at this and a good example for all writers is of course, Susan
