Triple-Impact Competitor® Finalist, Class of 2017
Wharton High School
Clifford Adjei is a soccer player from Wharton High School. Not only does he focus on enhancing his own talents, but also wants to make his teammates better as well. “Cheering up a teammate and picking them up after a hard time, is not considered easy. I remember a time when a teammate was getting discouraged because he couldn’t play how he wanted to play. As always, I like to see my teammates encouraged, motivated, and confident while they play this beautiful game called soccer. I encouraged him, and during the game, he scored a beautiful goal from about half field. Some players are really good, but they can be outstanding when they hear that teammate believing in them, and also pushing them to do better.”
Clifford’s coach uses the phrase ‘above and beyond’ when describing Clifford. “Clifford is the perfect example of a Triple Impact Player. Clifford comes from a generation, in my opinion, where training is not looked at in a positive light, a place to improve oneself and all while making others better. Clifford has proven that generation wrong. He shows up every day with a smile on his face, ready to train. His work ethic is through the roof and is contagious. Throughout the training sessions, he continuously encourages others to perform at their best in a positive way. He is always picking up others when they may be feeling down about a previous mistake. He then goes above and beyond in every training session. He is the first one at practice and the last one to leave. He is a coach’s player through and through.”
