Adam Treu - pius x hall of fame

Adam Treu completed a three-sport career at Pius X that proved only the beginning of a tremendous career resume. He became a force across the Nebraska stage during his senior year beginning with a successful senior season on the gridiron that earned a trip to the Shrine Bowl.

That winter Treu turned in a Super State performance while setting the school record for field goals in a season and recording the second most points ever scored in a Thunderbolt season on the hardwood en route to the Class B state championship.

Treu finished his Pius X career with an All-State spring that set the Pius X ERA record on the diamond, a record that stood for over 20 years.

Treu continued his athletic journey at the University of Nebraska, winning back to back National Championships with the Cornhuskers while earning his bachelor’s degree in English. The Oakland Raiders selected Treu as a third-round draft pick in the 1997 NFL draft where he played ten years and started in Super Bowl XXXVII before retiring in 2007.
