About Adam
“Life is All About the Journey”

Adam Breneman, a 2018 NFL tight end prospect, former University of Massachusetts All-American tight end and graduate student, is a Pennsylvania State University grad and Nittany Lion letterman, who hails from Cedar Cliff High School in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania.


Adam’s incredible journey kicked off at Cedar Cliff, where he was the school’s all-time leading receiver, a high school All-American, five-star recruit, and ESPN’s #1 ranked tight end in the Class of 2013. After receiving scholarship offers from over 30 schools including Alabama, Florida, Ohio State and Notre Dame, Adam committed to Penn State and its new head coach, Bill O’Brien, in March of 2012. Breneman is often credited with playing a large role in saving Penn State’s football program in the midst of the Sandusky scandal.


As a true freshman at Penn State in 2013, Adam put together a breakout season and was earned Freshman All-American honors. His 68-yard touchdown in the Nittany Lion’s upset win over Wisconsin stands as the longest touchdown reception by a tight end in Penn State history. After that season, Breneman went on to play under Penn State’s new Coach, James Franklin.


In January 2016, after graduating in just three years from Penn State’s Smeal College of Business, the football star once again was faced with a difficult decision after an injury. After much deliberation, Adam decided to leave the Penn State football program for several months in order to heal his body. Within one week of graduating at just 20 years old, Adam was offered and accepted an exciting new position as the campaign manager for Pennsylvania Senate candidate Mike Regan. Adam led the campaign to victory in a highly contested political race, with Regan capturing the coveted Senate seat.


The physical rest was just what his body needed and Adam was ready to tackle his dream of playing in the NFL. He joined his best friend and high school quarterback Andrew Ford at UMass to launch his football comeback and enrolled in UMass’ prestigious Isenberg School of Management Masters of Business Administration program. In December 2017, Adam will graduate with his MBA at just 22 years old.


And quite a comeback it has been, as Adam finished his two-year UMass career as a two-time All-American and the all-time leader in receiving by a tight end in UMass history. In addition, Adam was recognized as a two-time John Mackey Award semifinalist, Jason Witten Collegiate Man of the Year semifinalist, two-time NEFWA All-New England selection, along with many other achievements.

In his rewarding 2016 junior season, Adam hauled in 70 receptions, 808 yards and 8 touchdowns. His 70 receptions made him the leading tight end receiver in the entire country. He was named the New England Outstanding Player of the Year following the season.

After contemplating declaring for the NFL draft after his junioir season, Adam returned to UMass for his final year to further develop his game and complete his Masters degree. He caught 64 passes for 764 yards and 4 TDs in 2017 which earend him All-American honors. Currently, he is ranked as one of the top tight ends in the 2018 NFL draft class.


Recently, Adam signed with Octagon, a global sports and entertainment agency. For more information on Octagon, visit Adam will be training for the Senior Bowl and NFL Combine at Spooky Nook Sports in Lancaster, PA with renowned trainer Jim Launer.


Philanthropy and community involvement served an important role in Adam’s journey, and will continue to do so as he moves to professional ranks. During his time at Cedar Cliff, Adam founded and managed Catch The Cure, a non-profit fundraising campaign that raised $250,000 for the fight against ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Adam received the Prudential Spirit of the Community Award and the NAIFA Humatarian Award for his work in the fight against ALS. During his time in Happy Valley, Adam served as Vice President of Penn State’s chapter of Uplifting Athletes during its successful million-dollar fundraising campaign for kidney cancer.

While at the UMass, Breneman traveled to Oregon and took part in Nike’s The Opening camp as a counselor, a position in which Breneman mentored dozens of the nation’s top collegiate football prospects on the on- and off-field responsibilities of an NCAA Division I student-athlete. He also directed and participated in the annual youth football day at McGuirk Alumni Stadium, where he guided local youth football players through a gamut of football drills and preached the importance of hard work, and team work to success on and off the field.
