If dependability and durability are defined by playing time, then Greyson Adams of Anchorage is an MVP candidate for the Colorado School of Mines men’s soccer team.

The redshirt junior midfielder has played every minute of both games this season and has logged a full 90 minutes in four of his team’s last six games.

Adams, of West High fame, doesn’t come off the field even if you don’t often see his name on the score sheet. He contributes in other ways.

Against St. Mary’s of Texas, he added a little offense as he racked up his first career assist in the 43rd minute of a 3-1 loss in NCAA D2 nonconference game.

He now has one goal and one assist in 26 career games.

Adams last season ranked No. 8 on the team with 1,279 total minutes, which is even more impressive when you consider he started only 13 of 21 games whereas the six players above him started 20 or 21.
