Advice to Other Athletes: “When you want to stop conditioning, keep going, the best athletes are built in the face of adversity.”

“It has been a pleasure to have Adam with us for a few months before the high school season and during this summer in preparation for going to Wichita State.  Adam took our motto of ‘embrace adversity’ to heart as any failure he had in the weight room he made it critical he overcome that adversity the next time.  Watching Adam develop into a warrior in the weight room has really been a fun experience for us as he jokes daily about what is next, that he cannot get enough.  We wish Adam only the best down in WIchita and know he will not only push himself, but also every other athlete on the team.”
