ICON returns with an inside look at what it takes to move the Irish football team from place to place for a game – and a Air Force game preview.
Adam Myers is in his sixth season as the assistant football equipment manager at the University of Notre Dame.
Prior to his arrival in 2010, Myers spent two years at the University of Minnesota where he managed the Golden Gophers’ student equipment managers, repaired damaged equipment and packed team trunks for travel to away games.
Prior to joining the Minnesota staff, Myers served as a graduate assistant equipment manager at Marshall University where he was responsible for fitting student athletes with helmets, shoulder pads, footwear and other equipment. He was also charged with equipment repair, inventory, laundry, transportation assistance and other duties at Marshall.
Myers served as a student manager at Marshall from 2002 through 2007 and worked with the wide receivers and quarterbacks in addition to handling laundry duties.
Myers completed a summer internship in 2005 with the New York Jets and was involved in laundry, maintenance of protective equipment, packing trunks for home preseason games and sideline and locker room setup for home preseason games.
A member of the Athletic Equipment Managers Association since 2006, Myers was certified by the AEMA in June 2006.
