If you look up “sports nut” in the dictionary, you might find a picture of Adin.

Adin is the kid who lives and breathes sports. From the minute he wakes up, he wants to be outside shooting a basketball, kicking a soccer ball or even playing tennis or golf. Adin is going into 4th grade at The Maugham School in Tenafly, New Jersey. His favorite part of the school day is recess and he basically loves anything involving a ball.

But Adin does have favorite sports, and I’d say basketball tops the list. He plays team basketball every season except summer. Adin plays for the Tenafly Travel basketball team and has played for assorted club teams over the years. His position is point guard. Later this summer Adin is heading to Pennsylvania for 2 weeks of hard-core sleepaway basketball training camp.

Next is soccer. Right now Adin is at the Red Bulls Academy residential soccer camp in The Bronx, New York where he’s intensely training to up his soccer game. Even though he’s an NYC FC fan, he knows the Red Bulls can help take his skills to the next level.

Adin loves football too, but his parents won’t let him play. That makes Adin sad.

Though basketball and soccer top the list, Adin will try anything. He loves to compete and loves to sweat. Tennis, golf, lacrosse, ping pong, dodgeball – you name it – Adin will play it.

And when it comes to professional sports, Adin loves his favorite teams. He’s a devout Jets fan (his middle name is Jett, named after his favorite team), a crazy NYC FC fan, a loyal Yankees fan, and though he was a lifelong NY Knicks fan, he is now a rabid Denver Nuggets fan! It’s a long story. As for college – nothing comes close to the University of Michigan teams. Go Blue!

Adin loves to write about sports and interview celebrity athletes. He loves being a Bleacher Boy and hopes to keep going strong in the 4th grade. He’s grateful for all the support of The Bleacher Boys fans and followers!
