Adrian Peterson

Short bio: 

Adrian Peterson is a running back for the Minnesota Vikings of the National Football League (NFL). He was drafted by the Vikings seventh overall in the 2007 NFL Draft. He played college football at Oklahoma. Peterson set the NCAA freshman rushing record with 1,925 yards as a true freshman during the 2004 season. As a unanimous first-team All-American, he became the first freshman to finish as the runner-up in the Heisman Trophy balloting. Peterson finished his college football career as the Sooners' third all-time leading rusher.

Following his first pro season, in which he set an NFL record for most rushing yards in a single game (296), Peterson was named the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year. He was then awarded the MVP award for his performance in the Pro Bowl and became only the fifth player in NFL history to have more than 3,000 yards through his first two seasons. In 2010, he became the fifth fastest player to run for 5,000 yards, doing so in his 51st game.

In 2012, Peterson became the sixth fastest player to reach 8,000 rushing yards, ending the season with 2,097 rushing yards, just nine yards shy of breaking Eric Dickerson's single season all-time record. Peterson amassed 2,314 all-purpose yards from scrimmage in 2012, tying Marcus Allen for the eighth-highest total ever. For his efforts, he received the NFL MVP Award and the AP NFL Offensive Player of the Year Award for the 2012 NFL season. Peterson also achieved the #1 spot on the NFL Network's Top 100 Players of 2013. During the 2013 season, Peterson became the third fastest player to reach 10,000 rushing yards in NFL history.

Good morning CAA sports,
I'm writing this letter in hopes that Mr. Peterson could help my son Travarion Lott. He's a junior in high school and is talented,but he won't use his football talents to do his best. He lacks in self esteem even though we push him to want to be great, his coaches won't play him much because of this. We don't want our son to be a statistic. He has it in him but won't push himself to do be better. I know Me. Peterson is busy but if he could please just somehow give him some encouraging words please,this year coming up is his last year to prove himself. We want our son to go on to college and be successful in life, Travarion and our family need your help.
Thanking you and God Bless all of you
Madelyne Lott

Sounds like your son is not interested in what seems like YOUR dream for him. Let him live his life out for himself. If you have unresolved goals then that is YOUR issue not his. Honestly you are asking something from him that is NOT who he is which is on par with rejecting him... he will simply be pushed further away from you than he already has been if you continue this course. Good luck!

PS: Son of Madelyne Lott do what you wish to do for you and what you choose will be the right choice for all weather they know it or not!

I have a friend that has to be your biggest fan. Nothing would mean more to her than contact from you. Her name is Sandie Sprague. She lost her daughter in law a few months ago and now her son is fighting for his life too. He was on life support and they made the difficult decision is unhook but he is still fighting, they aren't expecting him to make it but my friend Sandie is hurting..
Just want you to know that there isn't a Viking game day that there isn't a post from Sandie to her favorite player, you.
It wikis mean the world to her to hear from you right now.
