Jamison Adams, an eighth grader at Anna Middle School, was recently awarded the Keeper of The Game Leadership Award during a ceremony held at the RoughRiders ballpark in Frisco.

The Keeper of the Game Leadership Organization selects one sixth, one seventh and one eighth grade student athlete throughout the state of Texas to represent their organization. The program focuses on promoting servant-leadership in the game of baseball.

“It’s pretty cool to be recognized for what I do, not only on the field but off it as well,” Jamsion said in a press release announcing the award. “I have been given the opportunity to play baseball all over the United States where I have received some pretty neat awards, but the Keeper of the Game Leadership Award means a lot to me just for what it represents. God has a plan for all of us, I’m just grateful that at this time his plan includes me getting to play the sports I love surrounded by the people I love.”

As players, coaches, or fans, “Keeper of the Game” develop other leaders among their teammates and peers by mentoring, coaching, inspiring, supporting, giving back, honoring God, reaching out in their community, working hard, caring for the less fortunate, providing hope and fostering teamwork. Jamison participated in the Middle School Match-up Tournament along with his teammates where he was selected for the award.
