Adam is a native of Laurens, South Carolina and plans to graduate in 2013 with a major in business administration and accounting. This will be Adam's second season with the Power and we are thrilled to have him back! He was a great influence on and off the field. In high school, he was the 8th ranked outfielder in South Carolina, was named All-Region and was named Most Improved on his team. He was also named All-Academic for a number of tournaments. He was Rookie of the Year in 2010 and North Greenville University. He was on the College World Series All-Tournament Team and was also MVP for the tournament as he led in RBI's for Freshmen. We are looking forward to having Adam return on the field with the Power!
