(SNO) – Saint Lucia was the destination for a group of players from the National Football League (NFL) recently, as Carolina Panthers veteran safety Mike Adams was married here at the Royalton with friends, current and former teammates, and members of his personal management team.

Born in Paterson, New Jersey, Adams is a native of Wayne, New Jersey, Adams attended PCTI in Wayne, where he helped guide his team to the New Jersey Group 4 state title in 1998. Adams attended Passaic County Technical Institute in Wayne, New Jersey before going on to the University of Delaware.
This is not Adams’ first time in the Caribbean, having visited Jamaica earleir this year. In March he led a group of players to Jamaica, where they visited Granville All-Age School in St James, interacted with the kids and made a number of donations as well.
Last year, Adams was part of a group of NFL players that travelled to South Africa with the goal of supporting and inspiring kids at an orphanage and a high school.
Saint Lucia is one of the world’s, and certainly the Caribbean’s, leading wedding and honeymoon destinations.
