The NFL Alumni Northern California Chapter is happy to announce and congratulate Adrian Ross as our Alumni of the Month for June!
Adrian Ross has an impressive background that provides valuable insight into his character. Born in Santa Clara, CA Adrian entered college as a “walk on” and left Colorado State University as the 4th all-time sacks leader, graduating with a degree in Animal Science. Playing all linebacker positions for the Cincinnati Bengals for 6 years, Adrian showed he was one of the hardest hitters and leaders in the NFL.
As an adult with years of life experiences and lessons behind him, Adrian Ross is determined to pass this knowledge on to the next generation and arm them with the tools they need to surpass all of the obstacles that lay in their own paths. In 2000, Adrian founded the Maddbacker Foundation. The Maddbacker Foundation opens doors through education and athletics to empower, enrich and inspire our young people through programs in literacy, academic achievement and workshops in leadership. Believing that dreams are for those who sleep, Adrian Ross’ support of our youth and sports legends in the making will help to create in them the same passion he has for his own future and cause them to wake up to see all of the possibilities before them and make their own dreams a reality.
As owner of 3D Sports & Entertainment, Adrian now helps future athletes reach their own dreams both on and off the field, and teaches them integrity in the process. In 2013, Adrian became a NFLPA Certified Contract Advisor. Fulfilling a short time dream to become an NFL Agent, Adrian is poised to help players to achieve their longtime dream of NFL success. Adrian Ross currently represents Kevin Bowen, an offensive lineman with the Washington Redskins. Adrian is currently on the board for Positive Coaching Alliance – Sacramento Chapter.
