Adam Rowson's Flyer, May 1, 1999

I'm pissed off for greatness.

Introduction of my life

I was born in Columbia, SC on May 1, 1999 at Palmetto Baptist Hospital. I spent the first 5 years of my life living in Columbia, my family then moved to Elgin. After my parents' divorce, my mom, younger brother and I continue to live in Elgin. My dad lives in Columbia with his wife. My my oldest brother is a sophomore at the Citadel. I had the honor of being a student in the Kershaw County schools Gifted and Talented Program, "Seagul" from 2nd to 8th grade and enjoyed all of the years I was in it. In the past two years I had the opportunity to got to several countries in Europe and Australia through the organization, People to People, but unfortunately I could not participate. I have participated in 3 sports in my whole life. I think I have done well in all of them. I joined a teen bowling league for a couple years then moved on to playing football when I was in 7th grade, but barely made the team. My first two years of high school experience were pretty good. I played on the Varsity football team my freshman and sophomore year and ran track for my first time. I would have to say that the persons who influence me the most are my mom and oldest brother, because of what they both shared with me.

Being talented

I am a talented person, not only do I play football, but I also can play the piano and play the saxophone. I have been playing musical instruments since I was 4 years old and I have carried with me ever since.

Hobbies

My hobbies are training for football and playing the piano.

Activities after school

My after school activities consist of doing rehab on my knee, working out, eating, homework, sleeping, and eating.

Training for football

Since I tore my PCL my training for football has been limited. I have to do rehab everyday and I still can not be cleared till February. But other than rehabbing I still train and work on my upper body in the gym to maintain being in shape for football.

Looking death in the face 02/12/2004

It was nap time and I was laying on our mats. I started messing around with my book bag when I was suppose to be sleep and some how the drawstring on my book bag got around my neck and started choking me. I couldn’t breathe enough to yell out to get people’s attention, but I am lucky to have had someone see me and cut the string from around my neck.
