Barrow (Utqiagvik) High School

From the start of Travis Adams’ freshman season of basketball to his senior year ending in 2018, he provided the Barrow High boys with one constant. Success. Adams totaled 1,610 points and 584 assists in his scholastic career and helped lead the Whalers to three 3A March Madness Alaska state championships, including the program’s first in 2015.

“What separated Travis from many other athletes was his unwavering support of his teammates,” said former Barrow coach Jeremy Arnhart. “He was also unafraid to lead, as he was so often called on to do.”

Adams also played four seasons of football for Barrow and was part of the 2017 First National Bowl Division III state-title winning squad. After high school graduation, Adams went on to play basketball for the University of Alaska Anchorage. Unfortunately, a back injury cut his collegiate career short.

“Travis strived to be the best off the field as well, and his attitude always proved contagious.” Barrow football coach Chris Battle said. “Along with his undeniable talent, working with Travis has always been fun.”
