"In my opinion, education is the absolute underlying key for people to achieve their goals." "Adam is a champion on and off the field. His sporting achievements are remarkable but do not define him entirely; he is larger than football. His dedication to human rights, the fight against racism and to helping young Aboriginal people, have made an indelible mark on the Australian landscape." "Adam is a leader and highly respected role model, not only for the Aboriginal community but also for the wider Australian community."
