The kids at Eagan High School last week just wanted to touch the shoulder of the man who has been called "Purple Jesus." They yelled his name, told him he is their fantasy football star, begged for an autograph and wished him well...

Good read thanks singersp, all the more reason admire our superstar runner. He sets his goals real high, but his number one goal is to win a championship and do whatever it takes he said " if I only rush for 900 yards, and we win the Championship that would be a successful season". That is as team orientated as it gets. Makes him a leader on the field and in the locker room. Adrian is going to get his down the stretch oh yeah.. SKOL #28

Whenever I read an article about AD I'm impressed with his attitude and willingness to work hard.

Very good read.
I especially liked the comment by Sidney Rice.

this kid had to be the hardest working back in the NFL... and one of the NFL's most humble. Everything I read on this kid always impresses me more
