 Adrian and wife Ashley Peterson

   Adrian Peterson was born in Palestine, Texas on March 21, 1985 to parents Bonita Brown and Nelson Peterson. He grew up in Palestine and attended Palestine High School where he was an exceptional athlete, like his father Nelson, who was a shooting guard for Idaho State and his mother who was a Westwood High school three times state champion and a University of Houston Lady Cougar
sprinter. Adrian’s uncle Ivory Lee Brown is a former NFL running back.  Adrian’s father Nelson nicknamed him “AD” for All Day, because he seemed to have boundless energy.  Nelson Peterson spent countless hours coaching Adrian and his friends in Pop Warner Pee Wee Football.  Marcus Carter had this to say, “ I was one of the kids that played for Coach Nelson. That was an exciting time. I lived in Rusk, but we, A. D.’s friends and team players, spent nights at their home. Coach Nelson took care of all of us. If we needed pizza , jerseys or shoes, he provided whatever.  He was a father figure to us all.”  Now the Minnesota Vikings star running back is accused and charged
with child abuse and suspended from his team until he appears in court.
