Fay-West Male Athlete of the Week
School: Greensburg Salem
Notable: Adams rushed for 225 yards and scored a touchdown, as Greensburg Salem rallied to defeat Belle Vernon, 20-19, last Friday.
Adams rushed for 186 yards in the previous game against Albert Gallatin.
“I would have had a bigger game against Belle Vernon, but I lost two fumbles,” Adams said. “I have this protective cover on my right thumb, and I had a tough time holding the ball.
“I’m looking forward to Friday’s game against Uniontown. It should be a lot of fun.”
Adams credited his offensive line for opening up running lanes against Belle Vernon. He said the offense is doing a nice job and clicking on all cylinders.
What is your most memorable game?
That would be last year’s game against Albert Gallatin when I set the school record for rushing. I gained 319 yards. Also, the Uniontown game when we won a close down there. It was a great game.
What makes playing football at Offutt Field (Greensburg Salem’s home field) so special?
It’s the best field I’ve played on in my life. The stadium is in downtown, and it’s a great setting, with the houses and business surrounding the stadium. There is always a big, enthusiast crowd at the games, and there is a lot of history at the stadium. It’s a special place.
If someone was to play you in a movie, who would it be?
Rob Brown. He played Ernie Davis in the movie “The Express.” I liked the movie and how he acted.
What are your goals this season?
My goals are team goals. We’d like to win the Keystone Conference and make the WPIAL playoffs. We have a pretty close-knit team and are starting to put things together.
What makes it special to wear a Greensburg Salem uniform?
Our tradition. We’ve always had good defenses and offenses. There have been a lot of great players that have played here. I’m just happy to be part of it.
