LINCOLNTON, Ga. -- Five-star defensive tackle Montravius Adams (Vienna, Ga./Dooly County) made a promise to his mother when he was a little boy. Well, make that a young boy. The 6-foot-4, 300-pound All-American was seldom considered little. Young “Mon” Adams told his mother Debbie Young that he had a plan.

“I worked at nights at Tyson Foods so I always had an aunt, Inez Glenn, that made sure he got to his games,” Young said. “He had a bike, but the chain would never stay on it and he always wanted to get to that game, so she made sure he did. He said, ‘Momma, one day I am going to stop you from working at Tyson.’ I said ‘Oh, OK, Mon,’ but I didn’t believe what is happening now would actually happen. That is what he said. I am just very excited for him.”
