Adrian Peterson, the NFL MVP and comeback player- of-the-year, is 28 from Palestine, TX and runs the 40 yard dash in 4.4 seconds.Â Standing at 6â€™2â€ 217 lbs, Peterson has a body built like a world-class sprinter.Â â€œEvery drill was done as if he was running a real play in an NFL game,â€ said Chief Creative Officer for Driven Apps, Kevin Simmons.Â Simmons, a former Sony developer, also played cornerback for Utah State so understands the combination of technology and sport.Â They call Peterson AD as in â€œAll Dayâ€ due to his incredible strength and stamina and ability to run play after play. Â It was vital for Peterson to be able to give back to young athletes as well as his fans and to also give them a little taste of the type of training it takes to be in the NFL. I was astonished with Petersonâ€™s will and determination in every drill that he performed.Â Heâ€™s so used to doing everything 110% that it was very difficult for him to back off.Â The shoot was scheduled for five hours -which he ended up giving seven because he just wanted everything perfect.
Here are more examples of a daily program that Peterson works on:
