Offensive lineman Matt Adams has competed on the gridiron for many different teams such as his high school team, the London South Lions of the Thames Valley Regional Athletic Association (TVRAA), the London Jr. Mustangs of the Ontario Varsity Football League (OVFL) and the Forest City Thunderbirds of the Ontario Football Conference (OFC).

His primary position is centre, but has also played guard and offensive tackle. In the past, he went to Texas to play in the International Bowl game. He has also competed in the Ontario Prospect Challenge (CFCOPC)

There was one particular game from last season that is etched in Matt’s memory.

“When we played the A.B. Lucas Vikings, the last minute was so intense,” he says. “I loved it when we where down by six and we marched down the field in one minute.”

The recruitment process has been uneventful thus far, as Matt hasn’t looked at any schools.

There are a couple people in his life who have been very influential, not only on the field but off the field as well.

“My dad, because I work on my snaps every day with him and he drives me everywhere I need to go for football,” Matt says. “Also, my coach, David Martin, because he helped me through football and made me a better player.”

Matt has a specific gym that he goes to for training, which is London’s premier athlete training facility and it was designed and built to train athletes to improve their strength, power and speed.

“I train at Powerhouse Training Systems in London,” he says. “It’s a gym that has been known to increase players strength and send them to the next level. It is going well.”

He enjoyed the OPC experience and how it gave him more exposure.

“I liked OPC,” Matt says. “I haven’t done an All-Star Game in a while, and it got my name out there.

Matt is aiming to improve his overall game for next season.

“I am hopefully going to learn a lot from my new o-line coaches with the London Mustangs and help me start in my first year of senior ball,” he says.
