RB Powell loves the game

The #CFC50 Bev Facey Falcons are a true powerhouse in Northern Alberta football and a true legitimate threat to capture the provincial championship this season. The Falcons’ roster bolsters an abundance of elite athletes that will make some noise at the next level. However, often the forgotten man of the squad is the other running back, Adam Powell. The 5-foot-7,170 lbs senior running back has been enjoying his best season thus far. Serving as a lethal change of pace back in the Falcons’ high-scoring offense, Powell has averaged over ten yards per carry on the season in limited action.

Powell first took to the gridiron in the eighth grade, as a member of the Sherwood Park Wolverines (CDMFA). He proved to be a talented football player as he went on to capture two consecutive MVP awards in 2012 and 2013 with the Wolverines before joining the Bev Facey senior team as a tenth grader.

“I was lucky to have great coaches that laid my football foundations, Powell recollected.”


Powell is a running back through and through. Despite playing alongside another great runner, he has been able to prove his worth in the offense and has been a crucial factor to the team’s success this season. Inspired by Darren Sproles of the Philadelphia Eagles, Powell appears to embrace the many nuances of the position aside from carrying the ball.

“I’ve always been a runner and the position is perfect for me. The position is dynamic and you need to be quick, skillful and strong. As a running back it’s not all just about running the ball, it’s about the blocking assignments and having good hands to catch the ball as well.”

As it stands, Powell does in fact, intends to pursue post-secondary education and continue playing football. Although he has had some interest from coaches, he intends to keep his options open to focus on the special season his team has embarked on.

As far as who have been the most influential people in Powell’s life, he acknowledges his family and the numerous coaches he has played for along the way as having the greatest impact on him.

“The most influential people in my life are my family. They’ve been through everything with me, they’ve never missed a game in my 5-year career. I’m so thankful for them in my life. The football coaches that have had the greatest influence so far in my career are coaches Brad Reid and James Avery from the Wolverines and coaches Ken Buhagiar and Curtis Martin from the Bev Facey Falcons. They all helped shape the player I am today.”
