Day 34: Adam Yeloushan '94

Welcome to Poland Seminary!

Adam Yeloushan was another one of many Columbia standouts from the Catholic schools of Ohio. For two years, he joined Sean Nichols in anchoring a defensive line that made great strides in improving the Lion program.

Coming to Columbia in 1990 from Poland Seminary in Poland, Ohio, he had been a football and baseball star in high school. By his junior year, he was going at 245 pounds and breaking Lion great Des Werthman's team record in the squat.

In the promising 1992 season, Yeloushan had 25 tackles while helping to bottle up the run.

But his senior season was the one he'll be remembered for on Morningside Heights. Yeloushan was elected captain in 1993 before recording 63 tackles and seven tackles for a loss. For his efforts, he was elected to the All Ivy Honorable Mention team.
