Adam began his career at the age of nine for the Timberlea Titans of the Nova Scotia Minor Football Association (NSMFA).

He just completed his rookie season with the Sir John A MacDonald Flames of the Nova Scotia Student Athletic Federation Football League (NSSAFFL).

Throughout his career, he has earned many awards such as Bantam Provincial Championship Game MVP(2013), Bantam Offensive MVP (2013), two Red River Cup MVP honours, Team Nova Scotia under-16 Offensive MVP (2014), Flames Rookie of the Year (2014) and NSSAFFL Division 1 Co-Rookie of the Year (2014).

In 2014, the most memorable moment was one that was special.

“My highlight of last season was getting the opportunity to play side by side with my brother Nick for his grade twelve season of football,” says Adam.

Moreover, his brother Nick is been his role model on and off the field.

“Nick is probably the most influential person in my life, because he always motivates me to be the best I can be,” explains Adam.  “Over the years, Nick has made me into a relentless competitor and has shown me how to become a great leader.”

Adam has yet to visit any universities; however, he knows what he’s looking for when it comes time to go through the recruitment process and ultimately make the choice and will use a major event this summer to network with programs.

“I will be considering schools that will allow me to excel, both academically and athletically,” adds the Flames standout who is open to considerations.  “I will be participating in the Canada Cup this summer and look forward to speaking with university representatives while I’m there.”

Adam sticks to a high level workout regime with the goal of excelling on the field.

“Throughout the year, I attend the Ultimate Athlete Factory owned by Coach Alan Wetmore, three times a week, working to build on strength, agility, speed and power,” Adam explains.

Overall, Adam is eager to get back on the gridiron to see how far he has progressed in his training.

“I’m gonna try to improve everything in my game for this upcoming season, especially my speed,” adds Adam.  “I want to make the opposing defences scared of playing against us and tremble when they see me headed towards them.”
