Bryanna Adams is a five-foot eight-inch freshman from American Fork, Utah. She graduated in the spring of 2013 and received the Academic All-Region Award her senior year for basketball.
Adams danced for eight years before she decided to start playing basketball her junior and senior year. She played the point-guard position in high school and plays the point guard and shooting guard in college.
She is the oldest of two children and her younger sibling is her brother. She has one dog named Joey which she cares for dearly. Her hobbies include riding dirt bikes with her brother and razor riding. Her family loves to travel to Moab and Lake Powell. Her favorite food that she loves to eat at any time, as long as it is ripe, is watermelon.
Adams decided to come USU Eastern because she was offered a scholarship for basketball. She is glad she came because she enjoys the campus size and people. She enjoys living on her own because she has had a lot of fun meeting the people in residential life and also getting to meet the people in the class rooms.
Next year she plans on returning to USU-Eastern for school and for basketball. She feels that next year the basketball team will be even better than they were this year.
At the end of this year’s college basketball season, Adams was named Second Team All-Region in the Scenic West Athletic Conference. Her hero is her father because he has been a great example for her and he has taught her all she knows. He especially helped her when she decided that she wanted to start playing basketball. Her Favorite quote is, “Hard work beats talent, when talent doesn’t work hard.”
