Football coach making a difference in North Mpls

By

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – The head football coach at Minneapolis North High school isn’t coaching solely for wins and losses.

“I’m here to use football as a way to mentor young men,” says coach Charles Adams. “I want to see them become better young men.”

The football field isn’t the only place Adams is making a difference. As a decade-long member of the Minneapolis police department, Coach Adams is also North High’s school resource officer.

“I want to see kids succeed in this community. I want them to know that if you have a goal you can achieve it and I want to help you.”

But a winning record on the football field doesn’t hurt either. Adams, now in his 4th season as head coach of the Polars, has led his team to a 7-0 record.

“We want to beat you on the run, on the pass, and on defense,” he says. “It would be a dream to take these kids to state.”
