2022 Adrian Cormier remains dedicated to becoming the best Running Back in the nation

Adrian Cormier is one of the best players from the Houston, TX area in the Class of 2022.

The 5-foot-7, 160-pound Cormier, who attends Episcopal High School, is a dynamic player that works as a running back. 

Cormier, who was a member of Youth1’s Freshman450 list last year, explains his strengths as a running back. 

“My strengths are my ability to control my speed and my hands. I can catch anything you throw to me,” Cormier said. “Also my footwork is good and I have a high IQ.”

Cormier shares the aspects of playing running back that he enjoys. 

“I enjoy contact, and making people miss when I shake them,” Cormier said. “The adrenaline gets me pumped up. I’m all mammal.”

Cormier patterns his play after this legendary athlete. 

“I look up to Barry Sanders because of his vision, movement, agility, strength and ability to make people miss when they tried to tackle him,” Cormier said. “That’s how I try to be on the field as well.”

Cormier has a strong passion for the game of football. This is shown through his actions and behavior on the field. 

“I love the competition, and my playing with my teammates,” Cormier said. “Those are my favorite part of playing football. I love winning and celebrating with my brothers.”

Cormier does his best to show strong leadership to his teammates. It’s important to Cormier that he sets a positive example on his peers. 

“I lead by example. My IQ is very high. I’ve been studying the game since second grade and learning from coaches and soaking it all up,” Cormier said. “The best advice I give is that we are a brotherhood and it’s an 11-man game and one man alone can’t win this game. It’s strictly mental.”

Cormier has improved in many aspects since being selected to the Freshman450. Cormier excitedly lists the strides he’s made in the last year. 

“I have gotten smarter and learning how to read defenses, understanding where to go and follow my blocking,” Cormier said. “I’m hitting the holes faster and studying film on my opponents.”

Cormier discusses his upcoming plans. 

“I’m going to Notre Dame in June for a camp and various of camps where college coaches actually reached out to me and said they were coming to see me perform,” Cormier said. “I was invited to a couple of top prospect camps that I’ll be attending in Houston and San Antonio.”

Cormier lists his proudest achievement. 

“My success comes in the classroom. I attend a private school, and me being from the inner city, it was a big adjustment,” Cormier said. “So my biggest accomplishment is passing (GPA 3.3) and focusing on school.”

Cormier outlines what he needs to work on to take his game to the next level. 

“I’m always focusing on speed and movement and reading defenses. Also using my brain, getting bigger and stronger plus faster for the next level,” Cormier said. “I’m in the gym daily to accomplish these things.”
