Adams Ready For Brownwood

Ft. Worth All Saints 2014 prospect Kendall Adams is ready to start the 2012 season against Brownwood.

While several teams across North Texas began their season Thursday night, one of the more anticipated matchups for Friday will take place in west Ft. Worth as Ft. Worth All Saints battles against Brownwood. The game was originally scheduled to take place at the Saints' home field but due to projected crowd size, the game was move a few miles down the road to Brewer High School to accommodate the large amount of fans anticipated to attend the game.

It's the third straight year the two teams have met. Brownwood, coached by Bob Shipley, won the initial meeting in 2010 at Cowboys Stadium. All Saints won the 2011 battle on the road in Brownwood. This meeting is for bragging rights.

All Saints boasts a roster full of D-1 prospects. Among them is 2014 athlete Kendall Adams who lines up at receiver and safety for the Saints. For Adams and the rest of his teammates, kickoff can't come fast enough.

"We're very excited just to be playing again, we've been going against each other for over three weeks and it's time to hit someone else," he said. "They're a good team and they're going to be a good test for us to start.

Adams said if his team will have to play the game the way they've been coached to come out with a win.

On the recruiting front, Adams has received some interest; mostly from Texas. Other schools are beginning to show interest in the 6-foot-1, 175-pounder.

"He's told me a little bit, of course Texas and also Baylor and Oklahoma State," Adams said of schools showing interest.

TCU is another program that has shown interest. The Horned Frogs are no strangers to the Saints' roster with a commitment from senior Charlie Reid and an offer for 2014 lineman Demetrius Knox.

"I've got a little interest from them, Coach Beck and my defensive coordinator said I'm getting some interest from them," Adams said of TCU. "It's a great school, I wouldn't mind going there."

Proximity won't be much of a factor for Adams when he chooses a school, although he does admit he'd like for his family to see him play.

"I would like to have my family come watch me play when I play at the next level but it's not a deal breaker if it's close or not," he said.
