Plaque includes image of Adams and a brief biography: "Who would have guessed it? As a kid growing up in South San Francisco, he was not a physical specimen by any stretch of the imagination. He was so skinny he quit playing football after his junior year at El Camino High School. But a transformation began at the College of San Mateo where he blossomed inot a big, strong starting tight end. He later played for the College of the Pacific. He then had a productive seven-year NFL career."
