Story by Sgt. Tyler J. Bolken
GLENDALE, Ariz. - U.S. Marine Corps Captains Matthew Browning and Jeffrey Arroyo, of Marine Corps Recruiting Station Phoenix, presented a Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl jersey to Nate Adams, long snapper and linebacker for Greenway High School of Phoenix, during halftime of the sold out Houston Texans versus the Arizona Cardinals football game at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., Nov. 10, 2013.
Adams, an 18 year-old senior, was selected as a Semper Fi All-American for his dedication in the classroom, the community and on the gridiron.
“I’m super excited because it feels like all of this hard work is paying off and somebody else is recognizing it,” said Adams. “The Semper Fi Bowl isn’t just directly focused toward your athletic ability, they look at integrity and character. It’s an honor to be considered that highly of that regard.”
Adams, 6-foot-2 and 220 pounds, tied the single-season school record for tackles with 101 through 10 games for the 6-4 Greenway Demons.
The Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl will be played at the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif., Jan. 5, 2014, and will air live on Fox Sports 1 at 9 p.m. EST/6p.m. PST.
