Adam states, “High school sports have had a major influence in my life.  They make me feel like I am playing for something bigger than myself: I am playing for my teammates, my coaches, my friends, my family, and most importantly, my school……It is amazing how many life long friendships can result from being part of a group, no matter how successful you are…..I have learned that nothing in life comes easy, and in order to be successful, I must put in many hours of hard work, physically and mentally.”
