Success tastes the sweetest post many adversities. Growing up in a traumatic childhood, Peterson became an American football player with a single-season rushing record and won the NFL MVP Award in 2012. His father, Nelson, was a former basketball player at Idaho State University. His mother, Bonita Jackson was a track-and-field champion in Texas. You could say that Peterson had the genes for sporting success.
As a child of age 7, Peterson had the misfortune to watch his older brother, Brian, die in a drunken-driving accident. Six years afterwards, he watched his father get arrested on charges of money laundering in relation to drug dealing. He developed anger issues, which he vented out into sports. At Palestine High School, he played various sports such as basketball and football and participated in athletics. However, he was best at football. As a senior running back, he rushed for 2,960 yards and achieved 32 touchdowns. He won the honor of National Player of the Year by various organizations.
