Bring your "A" Game

“You win or lose by how you choose.” “Bring your ‘A’ game.” “Be in it to win it.”

These were just a few of the memorable phrases shared by DeMoine Adams with the Freeman student body on March 15. Adams is a former University of Nebraska standout football player originally from Pine Bluff, Arkansas. As a 3-time Brook Berringer Citizenship award recipient, DeMoine Adams is a Motivational Speaker and Consultant, and works with the TeamMates Mentoring Program inspiring youth to reach their full potential through mentoring. He spoke first to the elementary students and then to the secondary students.

This is the last quarter of the school year and the season of state testing has begun. It is a stressful time of year, and it is easy for students to begin to give up or just not care. According to his bio, “Adams has a true passion for helping people reach their full human potential as leaders and winners in life,” and that was evident as he spoke to our students. Energetic and full of quotes to live by, Adams spoke from personal experience as he challenged students to overcome adversity and apathy, and to live and perform to their fullest potential.

While Adams drew on his background in sports, he also drew on his background in life. Adams stressed to the students that preparation and effort are keys to success, in both school and in life. Making good choices, being prepared, and giving your best effort are all necessary, whether you are taking the ACT or the NeSA tests, participating in sports and activities, or planning to succeed in life.
