ADRIAN PETERSON TRIES TOO HARD TO IMPRESS HIS FATHER HE PAYS HEAVY PRICE SATURDAY

HIS SEASON IS OVER

Until the last play

Saturday afternoon

for Adrian Peterson

it was a Dream Re-Union

Father & Son

re-united

Indeed the last play of the Saturday’s game for Adrian Peterson between Oklahoma and Iowa State appeared to be the Crowning High Point of Adrian Peterson’s performance as a highly ranked Heisman Hopeful, certainly the running back at the head of the Heisman Pack. It was going to be a Quarterback Black or White or it was most likely going to be Adrian Peterson the 2006 Heisman and his father was in the Stands Saturday. Many gave Adrian the Edge.

For the first time in 10 years

for the first time since

Adrian was playing

pee wee football

Adrian was 12

Saturday again

FINALLY

Nelson Peterson

was watching

his son play

Football

Since 1999 Nelson Peterson has been serving a 10 year prison sentence for money laundering related to Crack Cocaine dealing. Since then it has been reading about his son in the local newspapers, then listening on radio and watching on TV when he was Lucky. But Saturday FINALLY it was the real deal back in the stands in Norman Oklahoma watching HIS son the best running back in college football today and what a performance he put on Saturday for His Dad.

Before Saturday now Junior Adrian Peterson

has already run for 37 TDs and 3785 yards

now there was the Heisman to win and

maybe even likely the #1 Choice

of the 2007 NFL Draft

It sure looked like a Perfect Saturday. Made more so as the game progressed. Going into the final minutes of the game the Oklahoma Sooners were crushing Iowa State led by the running of Adrian Peterson. Now with just 6 minutes remaining His Play of the Game a spectacular 53 yard romp to the End Zone giving Oklahoma a 33-9 lead and a boost in the next AP Poll …

As Adrian Peterson DOVE into the End Zone

giving him 183 yards and 2 Touchdowns

just 154 yards short of becoming

the all time Sooner rushing leader

( in less than 2 1/2 seasons !! )

as Peterson DOVE into the End Zone

for his FATHER and everyone to see

and BROKE his Collar Bone

and ended his Season and

his Quest for the Heisman

and being #1 in the

2007 NFL Draft

Tragic END to

a Perfect Father & Son

Reunion Saturday

The Good News is
