Yellow Jacket QB will play RB in college

Beginning in 1985 and prior to each football season, the Atlanta Journal Constitution selects a Super 11 team, which represents the newspaper’s choice of the top 11 senior football players in the state of Georgia.

One of those players headlining the 44 finalist is all-state quarterback Adam Choice from Thomas County Central, who committed to play at Clemson this past May. While Choice is a quarterback for his high school team, he was recruited to play running back in college.

“I believe it will be interesting,” said Choice. “It’s something that I’m looking forward to. I’m excited about it. I don’t think it will be difficult, and I know I can handle it. It will be interesting to be lined up somewhere different on the field other than at the quarterback position.”

Choice is a versatile athlete at Thomas County Central who comes from a very talented family and plays both football and baseball for his high school. His cousins Tashard Choice and Joe Burns are former Georgia Tech and NFL running backs. So it is not surprise that changing positions to running back, Choice will be a natural. As a speedy runner, he has excellent balance while running low to the ground. He is explosive once he gets through hole and has the ability to make quick cuts to escape those attempting to tackle him.

“When I visited Clemson, it was a feeling that I had,” said Choice of his decision to commit. “My parents came and we all thought it was a great place. They have a great tradition with a great family atmosphere and the community was behind it. I was comfortable there.”

Not only is Choice smart player on the gridiron, but he also is an intelligent student in the classroom. With a 3.9 GPA and scoring over 1,000 on the SAT, Choice’s great potential in the classroom is much like his capability on the field. Choice was not only looking for a great football organization to play for, but also wanted to obtain a rigorous education.

“I will get a good education as well. That’s all you can look for in a school,” said Choice. “I had an opportunity to go there, so I took advantage of it.”
