Peterson sets goals that are so high that even attempting them makes him special. Peterson's natural and almost superhuman ability has been shaped by hard work, coaching, and discipline. His story is one of courage and patience leading to greatness on the fields of the NFLi Football Superstars Explores the lives of important and famous football players, past and present. Each book highlights the player's childhood and family background, his introduction to the sport of football, his playing career, and his outside interests.
