Notre Dame has become one of the top rushing attacks in the country, and running back Josh Adams has one of the leading forces in school’s resurgence on the football field. Adams has been pleased with the team’s early success, but he strives for perfection and never is satisfied with maintaining the status quo.
“As an offense, I think we know we can do more,” said Adams to Irish Sports Daily reporter Matt Freeman, “We have guys that want to do more. We’re never just satisfied with where we’re at. We always want to do better. We always want to improve. I don’t think we’re even close to being at the level we know we can be at. So that’s why we come in each week after practice, and we work hard, and we try to perfect our craft.”
Adams knows he must do a better job of running a play when the ball isn’t in his hands. The 6’2″, 225 lbs. back has rushed for 658 yards and scored 4 touchdowns in 5 games this season, but it’s the little things on film that can’t be seen by human eye that annoys him. Adams hasn’t been pleased with his own blocking technique or the way he’s runs pass routes as a decoy. Missing a read can become the lone determining factor in how well a play is executed by the offense.
The nation’s fourth-leading rusher can’t describe what perfection would look like, but Adams knows he hasn’t achieved just yet.
“I attack every week the same, just trying to get better,” said Adams, “Trying to improve and learn from my mistakes.”
The Fighting Irish to Chapel Hill, North Carolina to face UNC on Oct. 7. Kickoff is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET on ABC.
