Notre Dame’s Josh Adams may not be the Heisman Trophy front runner – Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield might hold that status – but it’s not for lack of trying on the part of the junior running back. He has 1191 yards and 9 touchdowns on just 137 carries and has a chance to raise his profile even more as his Fighting Irish visit Miami on Saturday in what is the biggest game of the weekend.
Off the football field, though? As it turns out, Adams has a fairly unlikely interest that you might not guess when you first meet him.
Just sat down with the most reluctant star in CFB, @NDFootball's Josh Adams. "I just want to let light shine on others & be a normal student. Just want to make pots sometimes." As in, ceramics, art class. #Humble

Now, you might not think that a 225-pound running back would be interested in such a thing. But Adams actually enrolled in an beginners’ course for the fall and is trying to learn the tricks of the trade right now. While others have taken a satirical view of it, it serves as a creative outlet for him away from the grind of the gridiron.
If Adams is able to transfer even half the skill he has on the football field to pottery, he should get a fairly high grade by the end of the year. He might have a Heisman trophy to go along with it, too.
The Fighting Irish take on Miami at Hard Rock Stadium in Florida on Saturday evening. The game kicks off around 8pm ET on ABC.
