Alexander G. Adams II
Hello there! I am an 18-year-old young man currently enrolled at Lake Forest College. I am a full-time student and an aspiring finance major at the college. I am also the starting running back, heading, into my sophomore year for the Varsity Division III football program. I was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, where I faced many of the same unfortunate hardships as my fellow student athletes coming up in the area. To pursue a better life and improve my opportunity to play collegiate football, my family moved to the south suburb of Park Forest, where I attended Rich East High School. Here I was a three-sport athlete for my entire tenure until my senior year which I focused solely on football. I finished my high school career with 1100 rushing yards, 14 total touchdowns, and 100 receiving yards in my senior year en route to an All-conference and All-State selection. With the aid of the Ryan Jones Foundation, I have been able to help fund my education, as well as join an incredible family that has taken me in as one of their own. I intend to use my education and talents as an athlete to help give back just as the RJ foundation has done for me and carry on the legacy of #26!
