Kalani Adams is on the downside of a splendid football career at Northern Lebanon. It has certainly been an eventful four years for the Viking standout.
There have been ups and downs, but mostly downs when it comes to the win column.
So it is only appropriate that Adams is helping fuel Northern Lebanon’s current resurgence.
On Friday night, Adams was all over his home field again, as the Vikings overpowered York Tech 33-6. With the triumph, Northern Lebanon moved to 2-1 on the year, after having recorded just two wins total over the previous few seasons.
From his linebacker spot, Adams, a senior, spent most of his evening in the York Tech backfield or blowing up running plays at the line of scrimmage. Along the offensive line, Adams helped open gaping holes through which his teammates advanced the football.
Because of Northern Lebanon’s struggles and the fact that Adams does not play a skill position, many of his accomplishments over the past four years have gone unnoticed. But Adams would like to continue his academic and athletic pursuits in college, and programs have begun to take notice.
During the winter season, Adams is an accomplished wrestler for Northern Lebanon.
