Just thought I’d start a thread since no one else has yet…suprisingly…I saw this day coming. I remember going home in 2001 and attending my old high school’s Homecoming game against the Palestine Wildcats…a mild rival in those parts of East Texas. I remember seeing this #28 going on the field and was thinking he looks like a damn good tight end/d.end…then the huddle broke and this man-child is lined up in the backfield. Interesting…
…He received the handoff and just rapes all 11 defenders on the field. Usually a comment like that is reserved for a terror on defense,but I imagine for my poor alma mater players it was like looking down the barrell of a shotgun trying to stop this guy. I never played against…or witnessed a running back dominant a game with speed and power to match. We had to deal with Jamaar Toombs when I played,but this kid was on another level.
Nevermind my high school getting raped on homecoming, who is this Adrian Peterson kid?? I was hooked ever since…and yeah I was pissed that he decided on OU,but was happy for him at the same time.
I don’t know him or his family personally,but to be from small East Texas…even more,Palestine(a town with not much to offer outside working for Wal-Mart Distrubition Center,Rail Roads or Texas prison system),I am proud of Adrian Peterson for what he has accomplished while be confident and humble at the same time. Go All Day!
