Adams making most of return to Ike

Life in a military family can be unpredictable.

For the person in the military, it can be a never-ending cycle of moving from town to town, state to state. For the children of military parents, it may mean leaving your school and friends behind.

For Daviyhn Adams, it meant moving from his lifetime hometown of Lawton to a place where he knew nobody. This year, he and his family returned to Southwest Oklahoma and Adams got the chance to be reunited with his friends, teammates and his coaches at Eisenhower.

Adams grew up in Lawton before moving to Hinesville, GA, in his freshman year. He left behind his friends and his potential career as a cornerback and receiver at Eisenhower High School. After nearly three years in Georgia, his family came back to Lawton this year.

"The transition to Georgia was the hardest part, but moving back, it's not so hard," Adams said. "I'm from here, I was born here. I've played with my teammates since elementary school."

As a senior, Adams knows more is expected in terms of setting an example for younger players. A self-proclaimed vocal person, Adams tries his best to pick up the spirits of his teammates when times are tough.

"Anytime I see my guys with their heads down, I just try to lift them up and coach them up whether we're on the field or off the field," Adams said. "I just do my best to keep the team's momentum going."
