Spud Adams begins his second year as a volunteer assistant coach after serving two years as a manager for the Bulldogs. Adams fills the position that was held by Dr. David Szymanski who is now the strength and conditioning coach for the team.
"Spud brings a great deal of youth and enthusiasm to our coaching staff," Tech head coach Wade Simoneaux said. "He also brings a good work ethic, which will benefit not only the team, but specifically the catchers and infielders."
The native of Atlanta, Texas played two years of collegiate baseball. At Angelina Junior College in Lufkin, Texas, he played second base, third base and outfield. He was awarded all-conference as a freshman and a sophomore.
