Tyler Adams Earns Academic All State In Four Sports

Tue 8-18-2020

With Tyler Adams being named to the Second Team Academic All-State team in baseball by the Iowa Baseball Coaches Association, the 2020 Okoboji graduate became the only male athlete in the State of Iowa to be named Academic All-State in four sports during the 2019-20 seasons. Adams was selected Academic All-State by the Iowa Football Coaches Association this past fall. To be selected for this honor, a player must be a senior starter, have a GPA of 3.7 or higher, must be involved in other extra-curricular activities and must be recommended by their head coach. Adams was then one of just 26 players selected to the Iowa Basketball Coaches Academic All-State team. This team carried the following averages: an ACT composite score of 27.6; a scoring average of 14.4; and a GPA of 3.8. Even though there was no spring sports season, every spring sport still named an Academic All-State team. Adams was one of just three Class 2A boys named to the Iowa Golf Coaches Association Academic All-State team. The Iowa Baseball Coaches Association Academic All-State team is chosen by a panel of coaches who selected the senior players who demonstrate outstanding academic, moral, and athletic characteristics.


Tyler is the son of John and Michelle Adams of Arnolds Park. Adams plans to attend Wartburg College this fall where he will major in finance and also play basketball for the Knights of the American Rivers Conference.
