Adams Clears Path to Victory
Scout.com five-star prospect Mike Adams, a 6-foot-8, 300-pound offensive tackle from Coffman High in Dublin, Ohio had a lot to be excited about after Friday nights victory to open the season. "It was great," Adams said. "Everybody stepped up and did what they were supposed to do. It felt good just to get out there and hit someone with a different colored jersey." "We all get along together as a group, especially the seniors. We all hang out together all the time and we have chemistry. Now we got to work on the little things and keep it going." The offense came together in magnificent fashion under the guidance of first year starting quarterback Zack Stoudt who completed 17-of-19 passes for 365 yards, but he was not the only player that shined according to Adams. "Trey Fairchild scored four touchdowns and it should have been five." Adams began. "He had a play where he was stretching for the goal line and the ball came out. When we watched it back on film it was clearly a touchdown." "Stoudt only had two incompletions and they were on legitimate drops." "Steve Gardiner was all over the place on defense," Adams continued. "He had something like 25 tackles. I know Ohio State is still looking at him. Now that a couple of scholarships have opened up he could be a leading candidate to get an offer." Adams looks to be lining up his official visit for sometime after the season is wrapped up, most likely sometime in early December. "Me and Jake were going to visit for the Wisconsin game, but I think we will now wait until after the season," Adams informed. "We will be able to go to any of the home games, because we are so close." Adams is looking forward to a successful 2006 season, and he is hopeful that it ends with an appearance in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl. "It would be an honor," Adams said of potentially being selected. "It would be an honor to represent the whole eastern half of the country. I know that there could be a few guys from Ohio selected, and it would be nice to be able to line up next to them."
