Central High School
Rivals unite for Drew Adams Day

Family members and friends of late Champaign Central alum Drew Adams were joined by players and coaches of the Central and Centennial baseball teams prior to Tuesday's game at Spalding Park in Champaign.

Pregame included Drew Adams Day, remembering the 18-year-old who died in May 2020. Both teams sported gray “Team Drew” warmup T-shirts.

“The pain doesn’t go away, for sure, and he’s still a big part of our program, but It’s cool to take a little bit of time to remember him," Central coach John Staab said. "The community has always done a great job of rallying around him, so it’s just another opportunity to honor him.”
