Adam plans to continue his playing career at Midland’s Northwood University. “This is a great honor, to be playing in this game. There are many people that deserve thanks. First, my parents for being there for me. My sister, Andrea, for not missing a game. Coaches Walderzak, Kraatz, Potts, Waldie, and Jennings, for giving us the tools to be a great team. My teammates, because without all of you, there is no way that I would be in this game. (I wish all of you could be on that field with me one last time) and finally the community. The support that you gave our team this year was nothing short of amazing. I just hope we delivered and gave everyone an exciting season.”
