Montravius was raised by his mother and admires the hard work and sacrifice it took for her to raise himself and his siblings on her own. He one day hopes to have his own non-profit that has a similar mission to Single Moms Planet but in the meantime wanted to support SMP!
From the time he started playing sports, it was obvious Adams was a special athletic talent in a special town.
Vienna might look like the typical rural Georgia town at first glance. There’s a single stoplight in the downtown area. The Dooly County courthouse overlooks a historic town square that includes a couple of insurance offices, a bank, a post office and a bait shop.
The city is surrounded by peanut and cotton fields, including one that sits right behind Dooly County’s football field. A giant Tyson Foods chicken plant near the site of the Big Pig Jig — Georgia’s annual state barbecue championship cook-off — employs many Vienna residents.
One of those is Debbie Young, Adams’ mother.
As a single mother, Young worked late hours at the plant to take care of Adams and his three older sisters. From an early age, a football-loving Adams told his mother he one day would make it to the NFL and get her out of those long shifts.
“He always talked about that he was going to go on to the NFL. He’s always said that’s what he’s wanted to do. He just wants to go play football,” Adams’ sister, Lonchella, told SEC Country. “He would always tell Mom, ‘You ain’t gonna have to work at that Tyson plant anymore! I’m going to make it so you can stop working.’
“And she would just say, ‘OK, Mon, OK. I believe you.’”
