Adam Farley's dad attributes much of his football success to Adam's days on the ice rink as a hockey player when he was ten. Today, at 6-1 and 325 pounds, this standout lineman from Charlotte (NC) Catholic would not be mistaken for someone who takes to the ice.
A rising senior, he was in Atlanta recently and talked about his experience at the Georgia Tech lineman camp.
Farley spent two days at the Georgia Tech camp and had a great time. "I got to spend some time with Coach (Al) Groh," said Farley. I learned a lot and I think I improved from the experience." Farley's dad spent a lot of time with Coach Groh and came away with a very good feeling about him.
The trip to Atlanta was Farley's first to the Georgia Tech campus. "I was impressed with the campus. I didn't realize how close it was to downtown yet is set apart."
Farley is being recruited by offensive line coach Todd Spencer. Spencer was one of the other coaches that Adam spent some time with on the trip. "He is my lead recruiter so we had some time together."
The two day trip ended on a positive note for Farley. "Coach Spencer said he liked what he saw and he liked my feet movement, especially." Farley didn't receive an offer but is waiting to see if that will happen.
Farley is also excelling in the classroom. "I have a 4.2 GPA. As one would expect, academics are important to him. "That's the top priority along with the football program and my ability to compete."
Farley's decision on a school will depend on how many more offers he receives. "Hopefully I'll have a decision by the beginning of my senior year with help from my parents and coach."
The remainder of the summer will find Farley at various camps. "I have a camp at Wake Forest coming up and then Duke." He's also been invited to the Football University Camp in Williamsburg, Virginia in July. "Those are the folks that put on the U.S. Army All-American Bowl."
