Adrian Peterson

by Ryan from St. Paul

The person that I look to as a hero is Adrian Peterson. You may know him as the starting running back for the Minnesota Vikings. He is a person you can look up to and try to be like.

He has so many talents. He came in second in total rushing yards last year. Even though he missed two and a half games during the season he still came out as the rookie of the year.

His dedication to the sport is tremendous. If you had his work ethic you could be anything you wanted. He's hitting the guy or going to practice every day and still has time to be with his wife and kid.

Overall, Adrian Peterson is a good role model and my hero.
