Adam Sheikali began playing competitively at a young age, and he found himself with the Concorde Fire Academy team throughout high school. He thoroughly enjoyed the players and coaches he met there, and was fortunate to play high school soccer at McIntosh High School, where he won 2 state championships, held the record for most varsity appearances, was an athletic and scholar All American, was Gatorade Player of the Year, and the Georgia Player of the year. Following high school, Adam went to Boston University on a full scholarship to join their D1 program and compete in the Patriot League. At BU, he captained the team and received all region honors, as well as multiple Player of the Week Awards. He also was on the Patriot League Honor Roll for his last 2 years of college.
Here is what Adam has to say about his USL-2 experience:
"My USL-2 (formerly PDL) experience with MOBA was unbelievable! I played in their inaugural season, and the subsequent season after that. Not only were the staff and coaches extremely accommodating and knowledgeable, but the facilities were top notch. After playing at so many high levels, I could confidently say that MOBA was the most professional in terms of structure and lifestyle. I played alongside extremely talented players, including some of my college teammates who were drawn to the club following my experience. I consistently saw players growing under the coaching staff, and believe that the club will be more successful every year. As of now, I unfortunately had to put my dream of playing soccer professionally on hold."
Adam is currently working at the Stanford School of Medicine and Stanford Children's Hospital as a clinical research coordinator, where he supports expecting mothers in the Labor and Delivery Unit while also working as a stem cell scientist.
We are wishing Adam the best for a bright future ahead! #mobaalumni #mobasoccer #mobaproud
