Where Are They Now? Rubio Long Snapper Corey Adams

corey adamsFor the next installment of “Where Are They Now?” we venture to Colorado to hear from Rubio Long Snapper Corey Adams. Corey was the #1 Long Snapper for Rubio Long Snapping in 2007 and has some of the quickest hands you will see. Incredible Long Snapper and an even better person.

Check out what has been going on with Rubio Long Snapper Corey Adams….

1.  What is your current occupation?  I currently work as a financial analyst at Lockheed Martin and as a Rubio Long Snapping staff member in CO.

2. Where do you live? Colorado Springs, CO.

3. Married/ Kids? Married to my wife, Karrington, for two and a half years. We are expecting our first child any day now.

4. What is your fondest memory of your time playing college football? My fondest memory from playing college football would probably be my very first game my freshman year. We were playing down at Auburn, in front of 90,000+ fans, plus a national TV audience. My high school team was really bad, and I think the biggest crowd we played in front of was MAYBE 1,000 people. Plus, Auburn’s stadium was about three times the size of my hometown, so getting to play in front of that many people for my first college game was pretty memorable.

Also, all the time spent with all the guys on the team. Whether it was workouts, class, practice or study table, it was a just always a good time getting to hang out with them.

5. If you could give ONE bit of advice to the current Rubio Long Snappers, what would it be? The one bit of advice I would give to Rubio Long Snappers would be to not have any regrets. The very first team meeting at Kansas State, one of our seniors stood up and told us freshman “The days are long but the years are short”. We all thought he was crazy and upset his time was almost up, but before we knew it, we were playing our last game together. That being said, whether it is a homework assignment/test, practice, workout, or just time with your friends/family,  do not take any of it for granted; put 100% effort in and enjoy every second because once it is all over, you will miss it.

I know there were times growing up when I was snapping with my Dad, and he knew exactly how to judge when to get on my case about snapping harder, lock my legs out etc, or give me my space to get something figured out on my own. Also, when your son is getting ready to transition from High School to College, be there to support him in any decisions he has to make, but give him the space to make his own decisions and speak to the coaching staffs on his own. This transition isn’t always going to be smooth, but at that time of anyone lives is critical to advancing in life.

7. When was the last time you snapped a ball and for what reason? Last time I snapped a football was the Pro/College demo at Vegas XXVI. It was the first one I had snapped in a while, and my form wasn’t what you would call “good”. Rubio texted me a picture of how bad it was, and since then I would like to consider myself retired, until the urge comes up to snap next Vegas.

 8.   If you could go back and play football in college again, would you go to the same school or a different one? Why? If i was going back and playing college football again, no doubt in my mind I would pick Kansas State. I loved the small town feel and all the support for the football program. I was able to meet my wife there, and have made so many life long friends, I couldn’t see myself playing anywhere else.

 9. Any regrets during college? Something you wish you had done or maybe hadn’t? I really don’t have any regrets from college. I was able to get my degree, had the opportunity to play in the NFL, and was able to find a good job once it was all said and done.

10.   What tremendous thing have you been a part of or experienced since you graduated? The coolest thing I have experienced since graduating (probably going to sound geeky) is getting to learn/work with some of the technology that our Department of Defense develops and uses. Some of the things seem like they would be made for a movie and are pretty unimaginable. It’s just neat to know the advancements we are making in those fields.
