2014 Updates

* A sensational season and career was validated once again in Philadelphia, Pa., on Dec. 15, 2014, when junior quarterback Vernon Adams Jr. finished as the runner-up for the Walter Payton Award given to the top player in the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision for the 28th time. Villanova’s John Robertson won the coveted award at the Dec. 15 FCS Awards Banquet and Presentation. Adams was the frontrunner for the award until he broke his foot on Oct. 4 against Idaho State and missed four games. “I wasn’t surprised because I missed those four games, but it is just an honor being here,” said Adams while in Philadelphia. “It’s a blessing to be invited by The Sports Network and everybody to vote us into the top three. That just shows how good a football team we are. To have Eastern Washington represented is a blessing and I am thankful.” Besides head coach Beau Baldwin and athletic director Bill Chaves, Adams had his grandmother Olivia Adams and his aunt Viola DeShields in attendance at the banquet. Adams and Baldwin would not have made the trip across the country had the Eagles defeated Illinois State on Dec. 13 and advanced to the semifinals of the playoffs this week. “It was an awesome experience,” Adams added. “Next year I hope to win, it but I hope not to be here because we’ll preparing for a playoff game. That’s the plan.”

* With 35 touchdown passes in his junior season, including a school-record seven TD tosses against Washington, Adams has a school and Big Sky Conference record 110 touchdown passes in his career to rank 10th all-time in FCS history. He is just the 14th FCS player to have had 100 or more. With four TD tosses against Idaho State on Oct. 4, he broke the previous school record held by Matt Nichols (96 from 2006-09), and passed Montana’s Dave Dickenson (96 from 1992-95) and Weber State’s Cameron Higgins (98 from 2007-10) for the league record. The FCS record is 140 set by Grambling’s Bruce Eugene (2001-05).

* Adams currently ranks No. 2 in FCS, Big Sky and EWU history with a 173.8 career passing efficiency rating (64.8 percent completion rate, 10,438 yards, 110 TD, 31 interceptions). He ranks just behind San Diego’s Josh Johnson (176.7 from 2004-07) for the FCS record, and is ahead of former Eagle and FCS record-holder Erik Meyer (166.5 from 2002-05) for the Big Sky and EWU records. Adams has had 20 performances of at least 300 yards in 37 career games. Adams has moved into second in school history for passing yards with a current total of 10,438. He went over the 10,000-yard mark in his career versus Montana on Dec. 6. He passed 2005 Walter Payton Award winner Erik Meyer (2002-05) with 10,261. The school and Big Sky records of 12,616 yards are held by Matt Nichols (2006-09). Adams has 11,670 yards of total offense in his career, and Nichols and Meyer are also the only other EWU players to have exceeded the 10,000-yard mark (Matt Nichols 13,308, Erik Meyer 10,942).

* Now 28-6 as a starter, the lone losses for 2013 Payton Award runner-up Vernon Adams Jr. have come against Southern Utah in 2012, Sam Houston State, Toledo and Towson in 2013, and Washington and Illinois State in 2014. With records of 8-1, 12-3 and 8-2 in consecutive seasons, he has had EWU’s most wins in back-to-back seasons by a starting quarterback in school history (Bo Levi Mitchell had 19). Adams’ 28 overall are the most for an Eagle all-time (Matt Nichols 26, 2006-09).

* Adams led EWU to eight victories in the 10 games he played in 2014, increasing his overall record as a starter to 28-6. The Eagles finished the 2014 season with an 11-3 record, and were the Big Sky Conference champions for the third-straight year (the last two as outright champs). The Eagles have also made appearances in the FCS Playoffs all three years Adams has been an Eagle, advancing twice to the semifinals and to the quarterfinals in 2014. He won five All-America honors in 2014 (including four first team selections), and was the Big Sky Conference Offensive Player of the Year.

* Adams finished the 2014 season with 3,483 yards passing and 35 touchdowns in 10 games played, having completed 66 percent of his 380 passes with eight interceptions. He did not meet the NCAA minimum of playing in 75 percent of a team’s games to qualify for NCAA statistical rankings (he would need to play in 11 of EWU’s 14 games). If he did, he would have led FCS in per game rankings for total offense (376.8), passing offense (348.3) and points responsible for (24.8), and would have ranked second in passing efficiency rating (169.2). Despite missing four games, he ranked second in FCS with 35 TD passes (the leader had 38).

* After missing four games with a broken foot, a late-season flurry of yards helped Adams re-establish himself as a top candidate for the Walter Payton Award given to the top player in FCS. He passed for 410 yards and four touchdowns in his return against 11th-ranked Montana on Nov. 8, then accounted for 348 yards of total offense and three scores in EWU’s win over Portland State on Nov. 21. His 10-game season ended with the 20th performance of his career with at least 300 yards, finishing with 425 on 25-of-44 passing with three touchdowns and a pair of interceptions against Illinois State in the quarterfinals of the FCS Playoffs. He also scored once on the ground in the 59-46 loss. Adams broke two metatarsal bones in his right foot in a 56-53 victory on Oct. 4 over Idaho State, but he played the second half with the injury and completed 23-of-35 passes for 354 yards and four touchdowns, and also rushed for 79 yards and two more scores.

* Adams now has 42 pass plays in his career of 40 yards or longer (26 touchdowns). Four of them were in his freshman season, 26 came in 2013 and 12 came in 2014. For the second-straight year in 2013, “Big Play V.A.” was a finalist for Geico Play of the Year for his game-winning touchdown run versus Oregon State (8/31/13). His scramble and TD pass versus Sacramento State in 2012 also made the final cut to eight.

* Despite a loss to Washington on Sept. 6, the performance by Adams against the Huskies earned the Walter Payton Award candidate a variety of awards for his school-record seven-touchdown performance. Eastern lost 59-52 as Adams finished with a career-high 475 passing yards – the second-most in school history. He was The Sports Network NCAA Football Championship Co-Offensive Player of the Week, and was one of five National FCS “All-Stars” as selected by College Sporting News. Bleacherreport.com picked him as its National Offensive Player of the Week for all classifications of football. He was also named one of eight finalists for the Manning Award Quarterback of the Week, and finished second in fan voting. In addition, on the night after his remarkable performance, he was trending on Twitter and ESPN broadcaster Scott Van Pelt named Adams his “Star Performer of the Day.” Also, College Sports Madness gave Adams its National and Big Sky player of the week honors, and Adams was recognized by the Big Ten Network. And for the second-straight week and eighth time in his career, he earned ROOT Sports Offensive Player of the Week honors from the Big Sky Conference.

* The career-high 475 yards Adams had versus Washington on Sept. 6 were the second-most in school history, ranking behind the 486 Todd Bernett had versus Montana in 1994. The yardage total was two more than Bo Levi Mitchell had in 2011 in the first-ever meeting between EWU and Washington. The seven TD’s Adams finished with eclipsed the school record set five times previously, including twice by himself. “I wish we could have gotten the win,” said Adams when told of his record in a game in which both teams combined for 1,110 yards of offense. “I would have settled with zero touchdowns if it would have meant getting the win.” As a sophomore, Adams had a school-record 518 yards of offense (411 passing) in a 49-46 victory at Oregon State. That victory was just the fourth time an FCS school has defeated a ranked FBS team. His 491 total yards of offense versus UW was the third-highest total of his career, ranking only behind the OSU game and the 492 (432 passing) he had versus Idaho State in 2013.

* En route to winning the seventh ROOT Sports Big Sky Conference Offensive Player of the Week honor in his career, junior Vernon Adams Jr. was nearly perfect against Montana Western, completing 28-of-31 passes for 370 yards and five touchdowns in less than three quarters of action for a passing efficiency rating of 243.8. In the first half alone, Adams was 17-of-19 for 198 yards and three touchdowns. Adams nearly broke a Big Sky record with a 302.2 efficiency rating on Oct. 9, 2013, when he was 16-of-18 for 300 yards and four TD in a 54-29 romp over Montana State. Adams completed 23-of-28 passes (82 percent) -- including his first 12 -- for 298 yards and a pair of scores versus UC Davis on Sept. 27.

 

Head Coach Beau Baldwin on Adams

On Payton Award Runner-Up Honors: “It speaks volumes to where we have come as a program and how we keep growing. It’s a credit to Vernon and all the work he’s done to put him in a position like this. To finish back-to-back as the runner-up for a national award is special. He will be the first to say it, but individual awards like this only come when you are doing great things as a team. To play in only eight regular season games and still be recognized at this level shows the respect the conference and the nation has in what he does.”

On Return After Broken Foot: “It took a lot of hard work in terms of rehab and grinding with that. He was doing everything he possibly could to put himself in a situation to get back as soon as he could. He came back a week or two earlier than most players would considering the injury. He fought through it, and his first game he wasn’t even 100 percent -- I don’t know if he was even when we played Portland State. He played through some pain and did things that weren’t perfect, but he still found a way to lead us to victories at the end of the year and put us in the playoffs with an outright Big Sky title.”

He is one of 36 quarterbacks in FCS on the 2014 College Football Performance Awards Watch List. The College Football Yearbook/Encyclopedia predicted Adams to win the Payton Award and was on that publication’s “FCS Starting Lineup” All-America team. College Sports Madness named him as its FCS and Big Sky Conference Offensive Player of the Year, a first team All-American and a first team All-Big Sky pick.
Was given first team preseason All-America honors from The Sports Network. The Sporting News College Football Yearbook selected him to its preseason FCS All-America team and picked the Eagles No. 1 in the nation. He and the Eagles earned the same honors from preseason magazines published by Lindy’s and Athlon, with Lindy’s also picking him as its FCS Offensive Player of the Year. He was one six Eagles selected to the preseason All-Big Sky Conference team as selected by a panel of the league’s media representatives. In addition, Beyond Sports Network selected him to its preseason All-Big Sky Conference team.

2013: Among his many awards and honors, Adams was selected as the FCS National Performer of the Year by College Football Performance Awards. He also finished second in the voting for the 27th Annual Payton Award given to the top player in the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision. The winner was Eastern Illinois quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and finishing third was Towson running back Terrance West. The Payton Award was won previously by Eastern players Erik Meyer (2005) and Bo Levi Mitchell (2011). That award is bestowed on the outstanding player in the FCS and considered the Heisman Trophy of the former Division I-AA level. The award was presented Dec. 16 at The Sports Network's FCS Awards Banquet and Presentation in Philadelphia. Adams was a first team All-America selection on three teams (College Sporting News, College Sports Journal and Beyond Sports Network), and was a second team pick on four others (The Sports Network, Associated Press, College Sports Madness and Phil Steele Publications). He was also Big Sky Conference Offensive Player of the Year and a unanimous first team All-BSC selection, receiving first-team votes on all 12 ballots. Adams finished the 2013 season ranked No. 1 in passing efficiency in the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision (183.13), which set school and Big Sky records while ranking fourth all-time in FCS. He had a 65.6 percent completion rate (319-of-486 to rank 15th in FCS), 4,994 yards (second), 55 touchdowns (first) and 15 interceptions for the season. Adams was third in FCS in points responsible for with an average of 23.9 per game (total of 356 to lead FCS, with 55 TD passes, four rushing touchdowns and one two-point conversion). He was also second in FCS in total offense per game (373.3), fourth in passing yards per game (332.9 per game) and third in passing yards per completion (15.66). He had 55 touchdown passes in the 2013 season to lead FCS and come just one from the record of 56 shared by two players. Now 20-4 as a starter at EWU, Adams has had 30 pass completions already in his career of at least 40 yards, including 20 for touchdowns. All but four of those came in the 2013 season, including 11 to freshman sensation Cooper Kupp. For the second-straight year, “Big Play V.A.” was a finalist for Geico Play of the Year for his game-winning touchdown run versus Oregon State. He started all 15 games at quarterback in the 2013 season.

Top Peformances in 2013: Adams had a season-low 12 completions, but five of them were for touchdowns in EWU’s 41-17 win over South Dakota State (12/7/13). He also had his second-fewest attempts with 22, but TD passes of 69 and 40 yards helped him to a 217-yard passing game (also second-lowest), to go along with 27 on the ground. His efficiency rating in the game was 212.4 – his fourth-best performance of the season. Adams matched his career high with 457 passing yards against Portland State (11/23/13) in a 42-41 victory that secured an 8-0 Big Sky finish for the Eagles. He finished with career highs of 34 completions and 54 attempts to earn Big Sky Offensive Player of the Week honors for the fourth time in 2013 and sixth time in his career. He had five touchdown passes, including the game-winner with 31 seconds left to Cooper Kupp to cap a frantic four-play, 74-yard drive that started with a minute to play. For directing a perfect 8-for-8 performance by the offense in third-ranked Eastern’s 54-29 victory over fifth-ranked Montana State (11/9/13), Adams was selected by The Sports Network as its co-National Offensive Player of the Week. He also earned national player of the week honors from College Sports Madness and Beyond Sports Network, and was the College Football Performance Awards FCS Quarterback Performer of the Week. In addition, he was selected as the Big Sky Conference Offensive Player of the Week for the third time in the 2013 season and fifth time of his career. Adams completed 16-of-18 passes for 300 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions against the Bobcats, and also rushed for 76 yards and a touchdown. Adams finished with an efficiency rating of 302.2, barely missing on school and Big Sky Conference records. Adams became the school’s single-season leader in passing touchdowns against MSU. Eastern, which scored on all eight of its offensive possessions in the game, ran 48 offensive plays for 591 yards, a Big Sky single game record of 12.3 yards per play. Adams completed his first 10 passes versus MSU and nearly broke the school record of 310.4 set by Eastern’s Mark Tenneson versus Sonoma State in 1992 (10-of-14/71 percent, 265 yards, 4 TDs, 0 Int.). Tenneson’s performance stood as the Big Sky Conference record until it was broken earlier in the 2013 season by Montana’s Jordan Johnson of 322.3. One game earlier, Adams passed for 432 yards and five touchdowns in a 55-34 win over Idaho State (11/2/13). Adams earned National Player of the Week honors from College Sports Madness after leading EWU to a 42-37 win at Montana (10/26/13). He completed 27-of-40 passes for a career-high 457 yards, ranking as the fifth-most in school history. His six TDs tied the school record set on five previous occasions, including once by Adams in the second half alone of a 2012 loss in the semifinals of the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision Playoffs. He was one of five National All-Stars selected by College Sporting News after accounting for five TD in EWU’s 41-19 win over Weber State (10/5/13). He had 260 yards of total offense, completing 16-of-23 passes for 194 yards and 4 TD, and rushing for another 66 yards and a score. Adams was added to the Walter Payton Award Watch List on Oct. 1. Adams was 18-of-24 for 298 yards and five TD – four in the first quarter alone – in EWU’s 43-14 win over Western Oregon (9/7/13). In Eastern's season-opening 49-46 victory over Oregon State (8/31/13), Adams accounted for 78 yards during the monumental 75-yard scoring drive for the Eagles, who were the 2010 NCAA Division I champions. Adams had 411 yards (17th-most in school history) and four touchdowns on 23-of-30 passing, and added 107 yards and two TD on the ground. With a school-record total of 518 yards of total offense, Adams broke the previous record for total yards of 493 set by Todd Bernett against Montana in 1994. His total was the FCS Week 1 high, as was his impressive 235.747 pass efficiency rating. Four times during the season he earned team offensive player of the week honors.

2013 Preseason: Adams and several other Eagles helped at the Russell Wilson Passing Academy in Spokane in summer of 2013. Adams and Wilson – the starting quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks -- are similar in stature and ability, and will continue to draw comparisons as Adams’ career progresses. Adams, in fact, is now wearing jersey No. 3 for the Eagles – the same number Wilson wears -- after donning No. 16 as a redshirt freshman. The switch was unrelated to Wilson -- Adams wore No. 3 in high school and asked for that number after it became available when wide receiver Greg Herd graduated.

2012: Adams was selected as the Freshman of the Year on the College Sporting News “Fabulous 50” All-America team, and was also on the College Sports Journal Freshman All-America squad. Adams was also one of 20 players on the ballot for the Jerry Rice Award, given to the top freshman in FCS by The Sports Network (he finished sixth in the voting, which occurred prior to the playoffs). Adams ranked fourth in FCS in passing efficiency (160.80), and was the only freshman in the top 24 of the rankings. He also was 69th in FCS in total offense (191.5 per game). His efficiency rating also ranked fourth all-time in school history (now fifth). In nine games as a starter and three as a sub, he completed 60.9 percent of his passes for 1,961 yards, 20 touchdowns and eight interceptions. With he and Kyle Padron sharing time at quarterback, the Eagles finished with 4,469 passing yards, breaking the previous record of 4,102 yards in 2005. In back-to-back games in the FCS Playoffs, each had a school-record six touchdown passes -- Padron versus Illinois State (12/8/12) in the quarterfinals and Adams against Sam Houston State (12/15/12) in the semifinals. Adams completed 14-of-26 passes for 364 yards – all after intermission --- as EWU scored 42 points in the second half to rally from a 35-0 halftime deficit and nearly pull off an improbable rally. His yardage against SHSU was a career high at the time and ranked 38th in school history. His incredible scramble and touchdown throw against Sacramento State (10/20/12) was one of eight finalists for the GEICO Play of the Year. Facing a six-man rush from the Hornet 10-yard line, Adams avoided as many as eight tackles as he back-peddled side-to-side to the 35, then side-stepped a defender and tossed a touchdown pass to Greg Herd in EWU’s 31-28 win over Sac State. Adams won the Play of the Year voting for Week 8, and the eight weekly winners were shown on GEICO Best of College Football 2012 on CBS on Nov. 23. The winner of the GEICO Play of the Year was a one-handed catch by Ohio State’s Devin Smith. Adams completed 17-of-21 passes for 169 yards and two touchdowns against Sac State to earn team offensive player of the week honors. In an unannounced and surprise start, Adams made his first career start in EWU’s 32-26 victory at Weber State (9/22/12), and used his arm and his feet to lead EWU to a 20-3 halftime lead. Adams led Eastern to scores on four of five drives in the first half, including a 75-yard touchdown march on his first drive as an Eagle. He finished the game 7-of-12 for 75 yards, and ran five times for 62 yards, but missed most of the second half with cramping. Of his five rushes, four were for first downs; of his seven completions, four more resulted in EWU first downs. One game later in his home starting debut, Adams atoned for a fourth-quarter fumble and interception by throwing two touchdown passes in the in the final 2:19 as the No. 7 Eagles rallied for a 32-26 victory over 21st-ranked Montana (9/29/12) at Roos Field. As a result, Adams was selected as the Sports Network co-Freshman of the Week in the FCS, the College Sports Journal co-Freshman of the Week and the ROOT Sports Offensive Player of the Week awarded by the Big Sky Conference. Eastern put together an 82-yard scoring drive to pull within two points with 2:19 remaining on a 30-yard touchdown pass from Adams to Brandon Kaufman. After EWU successfully recovered an onside kick, Eastern scored again on a 20-yard TD pass from Adams to Ashton Clark with 53 seconds to play. Adams completed 25-of-41 passes for 353 yards (52nd-most in school history) and three touchdowns in his second career start for EWU, and also added a team-leading 54 yards rushing. He accounted for 407 of EWU’s 447 yards of total offense. In the final quarter alone, Adams was 13-of-21 for 171 yards and a pair of scores. Eastern scored the first time it had the ball on an eight-play, 75-yard scoring drive, then led 14-7 in the second quarter on Kaufman’s 36-yard TD reception from Adams. Later in the year, Adams repeated as ROOT Sports Offensive Player of the Week after accounting for 356 yards of offense in seventh-ranked EWU’s 34-17 win versus No. 16 Cal Poly (11/3/12). He led the Eagles with 288 yards passing and 68 on the ground, as the Eagles finished with a season-high 542 as a team. He completed 19-of-29 passes and had three touchdown tosses, and also rushed for 68 yards. Eastern’s scoring drives in the game were of 81, 66, 74, 69, 41 and 83 yards. For his effort, he also received honorable mention Performer of the Week accolades in FCS by College Football Performance Awards. With an off-the-charts efficiency rating of 252.6 in just his third career start, Adams earned College Sports Madness Big Sky Offensive Player of the Week in EWU’s 55-17 win over North Dakota (10/6/12). He completed 12-of-15 passes for 151 yards and four touchdowns in just over a half of work to also earn team offensive player of the week honors. He also had a net 38 yards rushing (long of 23). Eastern finished with 458 yards of offense overall. Adams finished with 191 yards rushing for the season (4.9 per carry). He scrambled his way to 62 yards in his starting debut versus Weber State, another 54 versus Montana (9/29/12) and a season-high 68 against Cal Poly (11/3/12).

2011: Redshirted. Was selected as Eastern’s Offensive Scout Team Player of the Year. Was selected as the team’s offensive scout team player of the week once.

HS: Graduated from Alemany HS in Mission Hills, Calif., in 2011. In his final two seasons, he passed for 5,234 yards and 49 touchdowns, and rushed for another 1,263 yards and 19 more scores in leading Alemany to an overall record of 22-5. As a senior, he was selected the Serra League Most Valuable Player after leading the Warriors to the league title in 2010. He earned first team all-league honors for the second-straight season. Alemany won its first 12 games before losing its final game of the season, 28-21, against eventual champion Servite in the semifinals of the CIF Southern Section Pac-5 Playoffs. He passed for 2,901 yards with 27 touchdowns and nine interceptions, and had 896 yards rushing with 14 touchdowns. As a junior, he passed for 2,333 yards and 22 touchdowns, and also rushed for 367 yards and five scores. He led Alemany to a 10-4 record.

Personal: Recreation management major, and his minor is in coaching. Born 1/3/93 in Pasadena, Calif. His parents are Vernon Adams and Desirae McWhorter. He became a father on June 22, 2014, when his girlfriend Cheyenne Merritt gave birth to Vernon Kash Adams III.

COACH BEAU BALDWIN ON ADAMS WINNING BIG SKY OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR: “I don’t want to take anything away from players like Erik Meyer, Matt Nichols and Bo Levi Mitchell, but Vernon’s season this year is the best I’ve seen since I’ve been a college football coach. He’s earned this award and there is no question about it. He went after it and it’s been fun to see his progress. He worked hard to improve his skills as a quarterback, such as how he is going to beat the blitz and how he is going throw down the field with things crashing around him. Plus the little things, like how he’s going to lead. He’s taken a lot of hits and has had times when his body isn’t feeling great, but he’s played through it. The ride this year isn’t even close to being over in our minds, and the same is true of the ride in terms of the growth we can make as a team and Vernon’s growth as a quarterback. His mindset is that he wants to keep getting better and there is still a very high ceiling he can go after.”

COACH BEAU BALDWIN ON VERNON ADAMS: “People want to look at the big plays and those are great, but we have a player with guts to take shots and go for it. If he gets a pick or two, so be it. But he has the guts to go win games and stand in there. Sometimes when quarterbacks are so athletic like Vernon, they don’t get the credit for being a 68 percent passer and standing in the pocket and taking shots. That’s what I appreciate so much. He’s right up there with Matt Nichols for being the smartest quarterback I’ve had as a sophomore in terms of thinking quick, his understanding and getting things right on the field. It’s a lot of fun to coach that type of player.”
