Oklahoma fans already know a lot about Adrian Peterson.

They’ll be the first to explain what A.D. means and then follow up with one of many stories they have of his three years in a Sooners jersey.

Today, AD could break the single season record of 2,105 yards in the Vikings’ game against the Packers. He enters the game with 1,898 yards.

In a recent episode of “In Depth with Graham Bensinger,”  Adrian Peterson was interviewed by Graham Bensinger, a sports broadcaster who’s video series airs throughout Yahoo! platforms. The Minnesota Vikings’ running back talked about his difficult childhood, the imprisonment of his father, his July arrest, his plans to compete in the 2016 Olympics and what it would mean to break Eric Dickerson’s single season rushing record.
