‘Earned My Spot’ is an original 21-minute documentary produced by Nicholas McNaughton, which is set to be released before the 2015-2016 NFL season. The documentary follows NFL’s strong safety & ProBowl champion, Mike Adams, from the rough streets of Paterson, NJ to playing on the worlds biggest stage every Sunday. The film displays the story of Adams before college, being undrafted, and still playing in the league 12 years later while overcoming multiple deaths in his family, 2 possible career ending injuries, and the constant process of being an underdog.
“I’m excited to give my fans a point of view they’ve never seen of me before. Everyone has a story and I want to share mine, to hopefully inspire somebody. I want people to know the good and the bad of this journey. They say your circumstances in life shouldn’t define you, but mine have,” said Adams.
