johnnyadamsA 2013 graduate of Walpole High, Johnny Adams was captain of both varsity basketball and varsity baseball during his senior year. For baseball, he was a three-time first-team Bay State League All-Star, Walpole’s 2013 Male Athlete of the Year; additionally, he earned first-team all-state honors, Rawlings Northeast All-Regional second-team accolades in 2013,  and made the USA Baseball North Atlantic team roster in 2011.

  Adams went on to play baseball for Boston College, as well as for the Harwich Mariners in the Cape Cod Baseball League last summer, where he received the Manny Robello tenth player award. Adams also got a spot on the 2015 East Division All-Star team and received Harwich’s MVP award.

Adams became the Eagles’ starting shortstop as a freshman, and most recently was selected to wear number eight in honor of former BC player, Peter Nictakis.

He attributed his success at Boston College to his high school experience.

  “I learned how to become a true leader and become a student of whichever sport I was playing. I would not be where I am today if it were not for coaches such as Coach Tompkins, Coach Costello, and Coach St. Martin, as well as many other coaches at Walpole. All of these guys prepared me for Boston College and I am thankful for having played for each of them.”

  He said, “I want to play baseball for as long as I can. It has always been my dream to play Major League Baseball, so I will obviously do whatever it takes in order to get there. I have learned so much from baseball and cannot see myself leaving the game, so I would definitely get myself involved with coaching after my playing days are over.”
