How does a guy from Palo Alto, CA, find his way to being a starter on the Frozen Tundra for the Green Bay Packers? It’s simple: be one of the best wide receivers in the country, leave college after two seasons, get drafted by the Packers and start a month into your rookie season. Davante Adams, at age 26, is living the Green Bay dream. At Palo Alto High School, Adams was known for playing both sides of the ball. A true athlete, he also lettered four years in basketball and averaged 20 ppg as a senior. Soon, the Mountain West Conference and Fresno State came calling and Adams showed his stuff.
He became the first Bulldog freshman to have a 100 yard receiving day in his first career game and earned MWC Freshman of the Year honors that season.
After a stellar second season in which he was named the best running back in the country by the Touchdown Club of Columbus, he opted to enter the NFl draft and was a second round pick by the Packers.
Since joining the Packers, Adams has been thrilling the Cheeseheads with his receiving exploits. Since 2016, he’s accounted for 35 receiving touchdowns, best in the NFL. Between the 2016-2017 seasons, he became the first player in Packer history to catch a TD pass in eight consecutive road games (beating Donald Driver’s record) and the first NFL player to do so since Randy Moss in 2007.
Davante Adams always has room for community involvement, a tradition he started back in California while in high school. In 2018, he and Clay Matthews served as captains for the annual Green and Gold charity softball game. When he’s not playing football, he enjoys spending time with his wife, Devanne.
Davante, considered by many as a TOP 3 Wide Receiver in the NFL continues to get better each year. We look forward to what he accomplishes this season.
