It’s been a summer to remember for Walpole native Johnny Adams, and as hot and busy as it has been, Adams is finding productive and traditionally heartwarming ways to cool down.

Upon earning his degree from Boston College, where he was a standout shortstop for the Eagles throughout the last four seasons, Adams was selected in the 22nd round (No. 663 overall) by the Seattle Mariners in the 2017 MLB Draft back in June.

Adams, the former Eagle captain and two-time recipient of the No. 8 uniform once worn by BC baseball great Peter “Sonny” Nictakis, and many of his former teammates and fellow BC alumni, are attempting to give back to the community in a way that has become ever so popular throughout the last five years: the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

The Ice Bucket Challenge has become a highlight event every August in the never-ending fight against ALS. The entire Boston College community has embraced the challenge, and its athletic programs have all played major roles in raising awareness to fight this disease.
