Strength against strength
The season opener will pit strength against strength as the Washington Huskies offensive line faces the Auburn Tigers defensive line. Auburn is restocking the roster on several fronts, but that defensive line just went from great to scary great. The defensive line lost one player in Jeff Holland, and has added five new big bodies. The Huskies likewise lost center Coleman Shelton, but add three new offensive linemen to the roster this season.
Adams will likely draw his assignment against defensive end Marlon Davidson. While Davidson disappointed last season, much of the production deficit is attributed to several injuries endured last season. He may also face off against Auburn “buck” linebacker T. D. Moultry. Moultry takes over for Holland, and many believe he will pick up right where Holland has left off. Regardless of their ceilings, Adams must prepare to face two entirely different but effective styles of play in just the first contest.
The season gets no easier from there.
But that will have little effect on Adams. As a matter of fact, he seeks out challenge, and does not shy away when he finds it. You see, he possesses a gladiator’s spirit, a spirit as comfortable with competition as to make even the legendary Spartans proud. Add to that the fact that he has a warrior mentality, and it’s that mental strength and determination which projects him as the top Pac-12 offensive line for this season.
To earn a top spot in the 2019 NFL Draft, Adams will face some of the most talented defensive linemen in the nation. Each week will pit his best against the nation’s best. He relishes those contests. He practiced against Elijah Qualls and Vita Vea, now both NFL defensive linemen. Fans have plenty of reasons to celebrate offensive tackle Trey Adams return to the lineup this season. By seasons end, they hope to add celebrating a national championship win to the list.
