Westmoore's Landon Adamo – Character Counts presented by Eskridge Honda


Written by John Tranchina

Landon Adamo is very busy, but that’s how he likes it. And even though his schedule is pretty packed all day, he still makes sure he finds time to do his schoolwork and succeed in the classroom as well as in the pool.

The Westmoore sophomore swimmer has worked out a routine where he makes sure he gets his homework done after swimming practice, and it is clearly working, as he recently joined the National Honor Society.

He also runs cross country in the fall and track in the spring, and is involved with student council, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and the Native American club at Westmoore, in addition to NHS.


“I’ve got a lot going on,” Adamo said. “I try to stay active with the school and try to take those opportunities that they provide. It’s hard, but it’s worth it.”

Adamo pointed out that he really enjoys swimming. In order for Westmoore to be competitive, the swimmers need to be really committed to it, due to the limited practice time available.

“My entire team, we really work hard,” Adamo said. “We have a YMCA not far from Westmoore, and they’re nice enough to let us practice there once or twice a week, so with that, we’re able to have a swim team. We all work hard on our own time and make sure we get the job done.”

Westmoore coach Brent Long praises Adamo’s character and determination.

“I have known him since junior high,” Long said of Adamo. “He is very active in his church and loves being a Westmoore Jaguar. He is a real hard worker. You will never meet a nicer kid who loves to help others. He is also a great student.”
