Auburn Riverside High School’s Andrew Adam, diving, is the Auburn Reporter’s Male Athlete of the Week.

Q: What is your favorite subject in school?

A: Science.

Q: What other activities do you participate in?

A: I love cars and going to car meet ups and seeing others cars and planning out cars I’d like to work on in the future. I also love messing with and putting together computer parts.

Q: Person who has helped you succeed the most?

A: Brett, who I dove against, and eventually became best friends. Coach Todd Wollenweber is also a huge part, just because he always keeps me accountable and is a really technical coach, so he always helps me fine-tune my diving.

Q: Do you have a pre- or post-game tradition? What is it?

A: Before a meet, I usually distract myself with my friends/teammates so I’m not too in my head. After meets, most of the divers go out and we get food.

Q: Song you currently can’t get enough of?

A: “Don’t Stop Me Now” – Queen.

From the Sideline

“Andrew has been at the top of his sport statewide since he was a freshman. He placed second at state as a freshman, second at state as a sophomore and is the current defending state champion from his junior year. There’s so much to say about his diving, but what I will say is in my 25-year coaching career there is no one I’ve coached that could compete with Andrew. Every time I watch him dive, I remind myself to enjoy it. He is nothing short of breathtaking when you get to watch him dive – grace, power and elegance. He has not lost a dual in four years and has only placed second about six times total in his high school career, the rest were all wins. Andrew is a three-time high school All-American.” – Patrick McKeehan

Q: Person who has helped you succeed the most?

A: My mom and brothers.

Q: Do you have a pre- or post-game tradition? What is it?

A: My pre-game ritual is having a dance party with the team. We just go all out and have so much fun.

Q: Doing our team chant before we go out on the floor?

A: Anything on the radio.
