Early Life and Education
Jorrie Adams of Jasper, Texas has recently committed to the Aggies. At 6’7″, 275 lbs he boasts a 4.88 in the 40.
Deacon John Adams quickly recognized John’s talents, and did everything in his power to encourage him in their development. Ultimately, Deacon Adams convinced John to apply for admission into Harvard, selling 10 acres of his land so they could afford tuition fees.
At first, John was drawn to Abigail Smith through Richard Cranch because she was particularly attractive, especially her older sibling Mary. However, upon first encountering Abigail she seemed frail and awkward to him but over time they became close and John got to know her better.
After five weeks of brain surgery and chest infections, our dear friend, gracious colleague, beloved sister, aunt, cousin, gifted musician and lifelong learner made her journey home with the Lord whom she so revered.
Adams distinguished himself on the defensive line for the Aggies as a freshman, earning Southwest Conference Newcomer of the Year honors as part of their defensive lineup in 1991. Later he went on to make six seasons in the NFL – three with Baltimore Ravens where he made two Pro Bowl appearances – before retiring with honors from both.
After leaving Baltimore, Adams went on to play for Buffalo Bills where he helped anchor their defense, the Cincinnati Bengals, Denver Broncos, and Gladiadores de Anzoategui in Superliga Profesional de Baloncesto – and currently with Gladiadores de Anzoategui of Superliga Profesional de Baloncesto as one of their members.
