“(I) felt like it was going to be right for me. Talked to my mom about it. She liked it. My family liked it. Made my decision that that’s where I’m going to spend the next four years.”
Adams was also looking for a place he could thrive in areas not limited to football. After dealing with the effects of the May 20 tornado that wiped out the homes and neighborhoods of many of his SaberCat teammates and friends, he said he acquired a different outlook on what he wanted out of life.
“Going through that, I definitely had to slow some things down and think about how I can’t take things for granted,” Adams said. “I could have died in that tornado. That could have been my last day. I take every practice, every workout, every game, and put everything I have into it.
“You never know when another one can hit. You never now when a disaster can hit. Anything can happen to you. Just take and use that as more motivation to keep moving and not take anything for granted.”
