  Born on March 21, 1985 Adrian Peterson has three great years of college football under his belt. Since his freshman
  year at the University of Oklahoma Adrian Peterson has been impressing people both on and off the field. It was
  apparent early on in life that Peterson was going to be a good football player. His mother was a track star in college,
  and his father signed to play basketball with the University of Oklahoma. These bloodlines gave Peterson everything
  he needed in order to get a fast start in life.

  Peterson played his high school football at Palestine High School in Palestine, Texas. This is where he first started to
  garner national attention for his work ethic, speed, and strength on the field. During his senior year Peterson rushed for
  nearly 3,000 yards and received many local and national awards. This led to a hotly contested recruiting battle between
  the likes of Oklahoma, Arkansas, Texas, and Miami of Florida.

  Peterson eventually chose the University of Oklahoma, and he got off to a good start during his freshman season. It
  was during this year that he set he took the college football world by storm by rushing for 1,925 yards on 339 carries.
  He also managed to score 15 touchdowns. This led to Peterson becoming a finalist for the Heisman Trophy as a
  freshman; a rare feat to say the least. Although Peterson had solid numbers as a sophomore and junior, he was plagued
  by injuries on the field.

  After his junior season Adrian Peterson declared himself eligible for the NFL Draft. Although he may have never had
  the chance to play full-time after his freshman season, it is safe to say that Peterson is one of the all time greats at the
  University of Oklahoma. This is sure to translate into success at the next level.
