Anthony Adams Earns First FCS Preseason All-America Nod

https://goviks.com/news/2020/5/28/footb ... a-nod.aspx

Portland State defensive back Anthony Adams has been selected to what should be the first of several preseason All-America teams today when he was named first team FCS Preseason All-America by Hero Sports.

Adams, a 6-foot, 185-pounder from Newberg, will be a junior for the Vikings in 2020. He led the nation in passes defended in 2019 (24). His five interceptions and 19 pass breakups led the Big Sky Conference in each category. Adams ranked 13th in the nation in interceptions. He also had 56 tackles, two tackles for loss and blocked a kick on special teams. Adams broke the Portland State school record for pass breakups in a season (previously 15).

Adams was named first team All-American by the Associated Press, STATS, the Walter Camp Foundation and Athlon Sports in 2019. He was also a finalist for the Buck Buchanan Award, honoring the top defensive player in the nation. Other kudos included Hero Sports Sophomore All-American, first team All-Big Sky Conference and Academic All-Big Sky Conference.

His 2019 first team All-American honors made Adams PSU's first first-team All-American since 2015 when another Viking safety, Patrick Onwuasor (now of the New York Jets), also won the honor.

Adams now has 26 PBUs in his two seasons on the Park Blocks and already ranks sixth for a career. He is on pace to break the school career record (33). Overall, he has 104 tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss, six interceptions, 26 pass breakups and a fumble recovery in 23 career games.

https://herosports.com/college-football ... dams-bzbz/

Welcome to the 2020 FCS Jersey Countdown.

Throughout the May-August months, HERO Sports is going to name the best returning FCS player by jersey number, 99-1. Due to rosters being updated at different times for teams across the country and to keep things consistent, jersey numbers are based on the 2019 season.

The full 99-1 countdown/schedule can be found here.

*Note: Jersey numbers are based on 2019 rosters.

14: Anthony Adams, DB (Jr.) — Portland State
A two-star recruit out of Newberg, Oregon, Adams made an immediate impact as a true freshman in 2018.

Starting all 11 games at strong safety, Adams totaled 48 tackles, 6.5 tackles for loss, seven pass breakups, an interception and a fumble recovery for a touchdown.

Last season, Adams took a giant step forward and became a top defensive back in the FCS. He led the subdivision with 24 passes defended and led the Big Sky Conference with five interceptions. Adams totaled 56 tackles, earning All-Conference First Team honors and being named an All-American by HERO Sports, STATS, the AP and Walter Camp.

At 6-foot and 185 pounds, Adams is a playmaker and is always around the ball. He already has the attention of NFL scouts. Draft Scout ranks him the 12th best free safety in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Adams is a 2020 HERO Sports preseason First Team All-American.
