    I never knew...

    ...how good AP was.
    WOW. Check out this YouTube video of his HS and some of his college career.
    If we get this kind of production or anywhere close...oh man!

    If our line can give him those holes and give him time to get around the corner, it will be a madhouse in Valhalla.

    keep in mind thats also only HS ball.
    There are guys on my team who have done what he has done there, not because they're that good, but because the other team often isn't that good.
    in HS ball, speed kills.
    if you've got the speed to turn the corner, your gone.
    for example our qb has a 4.56 40 time, and we run a veer offense, which if your not familiar with that, the qb has the option to hand of to the full back, wr or keep it himself.
    who he hands off to depends on what the defense gives him, if they crash inside, he'll hand it off to the wr on the end around, etc.
    when he keeps it, if he's got a hole, he's ogne b/c noone can catch him

    LMAO....look at how tiny some of those guys in HS are! He looks like a man among boys.

    Like Webby said, if our o-line gives him the holes to get through he will tear it up. He has the size and quickness to take on linebackers and make mincemeat of secondaries.

    Bare in mind that way-back-when Peterson was touted as someone who could make the jump to the NFL straight from high school; that video shows just why they thought that.

    The A. Peterson Trbute is exactly why we the soonernation would be pleased if some way we could turn back time and have AD for another 3 years. . . Hes a great young man and joy to watch, he screws up offensive cord.
    because they know what he is capable of and they lean on him, His first year when we had a complete team J. White QB(Heisman Trophy) Mark Clayton
    WR(Ravens) and a great defense he was even more effective, setting freshman records. . . If you guys r really worried about him, send him back for another year of prep work , we wont mind

    I missed the video, the music made me smash my head repeatedly against the wall for 3 min.

    A little 1 on 1
    interview locally .

    .

    .

    at the end of interview they ranked AD on top of Greg Pruitt and Steve Owens
    just under Joe Washington and Billy Simms.

    .

    .

    pretty good company.
