Notre Dame RB Josh Adams Uplifting Athletes Player of the Week


ADAMS NDNotre Dame went old school on Temple in its 2017 opener, piling up more than 400 yards on the ground to help with the transition of a first-year starting quarterback.

The Fighting Irish are talented and deep at the running back position this year. Starter Josh Adams had a monster season debut, galloping 37 yards for a score on his first touch on his way to a 161-yard outing on 19 carries. He also scored a pair of touchdowns.

Adams is the Week 1 Uplifting Athletes Player of the Week in Notre Dame’s 49-16 triumph over Temple.

In addition to Adams’ 161 yards, back-up RB Dexter Williams added 124 yards and one touchdown and starting QB Brandon Wimbush chipped in with 106 yards on the ground. Williams was a finalist for the 2017 Uplifting Athletes Rare Disease Champion Award.
