The Quarter back is under pressure,
he dumps it off on a screen, Adrian catches it breaks a tackle and is off to
the races, he out runs the defender and scores the crowd goes CRAZY.
Adrian Peterson the Vikings running back crosses the goal line for the
first time to win the game. Adrian
Peterson tore his ACL in 2011. He is my hero because he uses determination and
perseverance to get through his severe injury.
On December 26 2011acing
the Washington Redskins in the fourth quarter
of the game on a handoff to Adrian he gets a good nine yards but after the
tackle he can't get up and is thriving in pain.
Later that night the doctor tells Adrian
that he has tore his ACL and could not participate in most if not all of the
offseason. Maybe the following season because it he is a running back and it is
in his knee. After being in the rehab
for a couple of weeks he is determined to get back on the field in the
preseason or the early regular season.
After months of rehabilitation of doing workouts
and weight lifting and mainly get back into NFL shape with running but no pads
yet. After two months of this he gets
back into the NFL three whole months early. In preseason of the week one he scores a
insane four touchdowns, not setting a record but still is incredibly great. After the preseason and his domination in it
he is ready to hit the regular season.
After a good week of practice, Adrian
is ready to face the Jacksonville Jaguars in a week one showdown. The Vikings show up in their dark purple
jerseys ready to win. Adrian Peterson
scores a pretty good two touchdowns to beat the Jaguars 24 to 17. Next week during the Vikings practice
Wednesday he hurts his leg again but he is okay just a cramp. In week two of the regular season in the
National Football League the Vikings lose the game to the Indianapolis Colts 23
to 20 and Adrian Peterson gets one touchdown which is good.
After a incredible season it comes down to the
last game week 17 and Adrian Peterson is 209 yards short of the NFL rushing
record and most importantly it's a win you're in the playoffs. The Vikings win the game verses a very good
Packers team. The underdogs are in the
playoffs but during the game verses the Packers Adrian Peterson fell 9 yards
short from Eric Dickerson's record. Adrian said after the
game" a fan had a big digital sign counting down to the record and that really
annoyed me, because it's about the game." But it doesn't matter because we are
in the playoffs. Unfortunately the hype
with Adrian doesn't
help the Vikings are one and done in the playoffs and the Vikings season comes
to a screeching halt
Adrian Peterson is my hero because he shows
perseverance and determination to get through tough things like a injury or a
depressing thing that happens in your life and is a all around
