Washington Football left tackle Trey Adams is coming back from injury this season. Can he emerge from rehab to resume dominant offensive line play in his senior, and last, season?

Washington Football left offensive tackle Trey Adams stands 6-foot-8 and weighs in a 331 pounds. There is no question in anyone’s mind that he looks the part of a starting NFL offensive lineman. But he fell to injury last season in a brutal contest against Arizona State University. That injury took him out for the remainder of the season. In many ways, the offense was simply not the same without him.

Adams is on the road to recovery this season. He injured his right knee ACL, an injury which had once risked ending a football players career. Now, medical science has advanced treatements which ensure a significant likelihood of full recovery. Significant likelihood, but not a 100 percent guarantee.  Rehabilitating a knee is hard work. Fortunately, Adams has the perfect mindset to grind it out and emerge stronger and more determined than ever.

When healthy, he is the epitome of offensive lineman. He plays aggressively, seeking to initiate first contact. And once he engages, he drives his tree-trunk-like legs until he pancakes a defender, or moves them so far out of the play that they will not recover. He sticks with the pass rusher, showing an amazing lateral burst to remain between defender and quarterback.

He is a formidable blocker who has that selfless mentality. Selfless, but he is fierce and relentless. He flourishes in the trenches, never backing down. And the only way the Washington Football team competes for a national championship is by benefiting from the best season Trey Adams can muster.
