I love to play football. I have been playing football since I was in fifth grade and it has taught me many things. One of the people I look up to is Adrian Peterson; he is the running back for the Minnesota Vikings. He is a very tough and kindhearted man. Adrian is a courageous man. Also, he would rather drop a shoulder and run a guy over instead of running out of bounds.

My hero is Adrian Peterson he is an NFL running back. Adrian Peterson lives in Minnesota. I think he gives hope to kids because they look up to him for being so good and he does his job very well.

Adrian is in only his second season and he already has numbers to get him noticed not only by the media but other teams. Adrian won rookie of the year in 06-07 seasons. He is 6 foot 1 inch tall, he weighs 217 pounds and he is only 23 years old. Adrian is not a showoff kind of player he dose not make fun of the other team when he scores or gets a big run. Now a days that's what a lot of players are like, but not him. He is a very good sport.

He has inspired me in many ways. I like the fact he will run a guy over and not run out of bounds. I like how he is a good sport no matter what the score is. He has a firm handshake, well, that is what everyone says in the media so that means he is a gentleman in my books.

This is why I picked him as my hero. He is a a tough man who is a great runner. He plays for my favorite team, the Vikings. I like everything he is about that we need in the NFL.
