January 20, 2005 - Huntsville, AL-Tennessee Valley Pythons coach Dick Adams will be inducted into the Miami-Ohio University Athletic Hall of Fame during ceremonies at halftime of the Miami-Ohio - Ohio men’s basketball game Saturday evening in Oxford, Ohio.

Adams, 57, lettered in football at Miami-Ohio from 1968-70 and was selected first-team All-MAC defensive back and kicker in ‘69 and ‘70. Over his career he established 14 team records and tied two others, including twice intercepting seven passes in a season while playing as a second-team All-American under Bo Schembechler and Bill Mallory.

"I’m excited being able to go back and hopefully see some coaches that I played for,’’ Adams said. "For me, it was just being at the right place at the right time. I had great teammates and we worked hard together - lots of great memories."

Adams was drafted by the Houston Oilers in 1971 and moved on to a standout playing and coaching career in the Canadian Football League. In 1995, Adams was inducted into the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame.
