Andrew Kean, Firstpoint USA Chief Executive and founder had this to say about Adele:

Adele was the first of our female soccer players to earn national acclaim during her college career and was regarded, and still remains, as one of the most successful players in Montevallos history.  She was an excellent athlete, a joy to work with, and someone we knew would make a success of the opportunity they had been given.  Adele is a well deserving candidate for induction into the FirstPoint USA Hall of Fame

We would like to congratulate Adele on all her accomplishments and wish her every success for the future!
