This week alone 17-year-old Adam has received pleasing HSC results, picked up the prestigious Pierre de Coubertin award from BH High School and posted his best bowling figures (4/45) for the 2011-12 season.
Now Adam must prepare for Saturday’s Twenty20 Grand Final against West, decide which university course to pursue next year and field offers to play District cricket in Adelaide. Talk about hectic.
