Morris’ Kolby Adams – Fan’s Choice Hometown Hero Presented by Muscogee Creek Nation
“Covid-19? It sucks, honestly. For me as a senior I don’t like it at all.”
It’s hard to blame Kolby Adams for feeling that way. The virus hit the Eagles football team costing them practice time, a scrimmage and the first two regular season games. It shortens the season for the VYPE TOP 100 nominee who looks to play either football or baseball at the next level. Those two sports are just part of the busy athletic schedule that Adams sets out for himself with wrestling and track also figuring into the mix.
“I don’t really have a favorite sport. It’s like when one starts winding down and I think I’m getting tired of it, the next season is here and I’m excited to see it come,” said Adams who has received one baseball offer so far from Coffeyville Community College with looks from several other area schools.
A leader by example, Adams, the Eagles quarterback, can also be a rah-rah guy if need be.
“I can be vocal to get the team pumped up or as the quarterback leading the team but I’m not one to talk a bunch of smack,” said Adams who is also a member of the National Honor Society. “I know if the guys see me doing my best and doing what’s right, they’ll follow my lead.”
Being acknowledged as a Home Town Hero is special for Kolby.
“It means a lot because I had folks supporting me from the football team to friends and family, school mates and even folks in the community I know. I think a Home Town Hero is someone who is always there for the community when you need them and always does the right thing even when no one is looking.”
