Senior Drew Adams, three-time ECAC Lacrosse League Goalie of the Year, heads into his final season at Penn State looking to guide Penn State to the NCAA play-offs and secure yet another All-America honor. Voted team captain by his peers, Adams has established himself as one of the nation's premier goalies and his consistent presence in goal will be a steadying for as Penn State embarks on a post-season run.

Adams had a superb 7.78 goals against average, allowing only 101 goals in under 800 minutes played. He was named ECAC Defensive Player of the Week once during the season. In two years, he has an 8.01 GAA and has played in over 1,500 minutes for the Nittany Lions.

Starting every game for Penn State and playing all but three minutes of the season, Adams collected 164 saves and allowed only 108 goals for a 8.25 goals against average and a .603 save percentage. Adams GAA was fifth in the conference but his save percentage was second. He was honored by the ECAC as both the ECAC Rookie of the Year and the ECAC Goalie of the Year.
