After an All-ODAC career as a player at EMU, Adam Posey joined the Royals as a coach for his first season in 2015. He then became the first full-time assistant coach in the history of the EMU program for the 2016 season.
As a player, Adam batted .424 as a senior and tied Erik Kratz's program record with 72 hits in the season. He also had a 4-4 record from the mound and was one of the nation's best at strikeout-to-walk ratio, whiffing 56 batters while walking just 4. He was named All-ODAC First Team in 2014, as well as All-State First Team, and All-Region by two different organizations.
