Adrian Alvarez '17 Officially Headed To Cornell College
Webb School of California senior Adrian Alvarez capped off a highly successful Webb Athletics career by signing with NCAA Division III Cornell College Saturday. Adrian will continue his baseball and football career for the Rams. He says coaches are scouting him to play safety and return kicks in football and to play the middle infield in baseball.
Adrian led the 2016 Webb football team with 1080 all-purpose yards, including 591 yards receiving and nine touchdown catches. He also had 57 tackles, two interceptions, and racked up 334 yards as a kick and punt returner, including two kickoffs returned for a touchdown
In baseball this spring, he hit .437 with 19 RBI’s, five doubles, one triple, and one home run, and was second on the team with 13 stolen bases, and was in on four double plays.
Adrian, who says he officially committed to the Rams earlier this month, becomes the third Webb senior who will play Division III football, joining Apollo Thomas and Nick Jung who will both play at Pomona-Pitzer. “I want to thank all my teammates and coaches, you all really pushed me to do my best,” said Alvarez during an on-campus signing ceremony at The Webb Schools. “I’ve seen Adrian grow and mature not only as a player but most importantly as a person, if he’s doing this every year he’s gonna make some waves at Cornell,” said Webb Head Football Coach Amahl Thomas.
