, the daughter of former NFL running back Adrian Peterson, is already making a name for herself as an eighth grader on varsity for Providence Academy (Plymouth, Minn.)
Peterson is averaging 11.8 points per game for the 17-4 Lions and recently picked up an offer from the University of Minnesota.
She posted on Instagram: "After a nice talk with Coach Plitzuweit, I am so blessed and excited to receive my first offer from the University of Minnesota! Go Gophers!"
With her blossoming game seen in the video above, it's no doubt that Peterson will start gaining more attention and offers.
Adrian Peterson was a standout on the football field for Palestine (Texas)
, rushing for over 5,000 yards and 54 touchdowns while averaging 10 yards per carry in his final two seasons before graduating in 2004. He was taken seventh overall by the Minnesota Vikings in the 2007 draft and went on to rush for nearly 15,000 yards in his 15-year career.
The Providence Academy squad is a hotbed for not only ballers, but daughters of former athletes.
Chad Greenway, Peterson's Minnesota teammate for a decade, has a pair of daughters at Providence Academy. Maddyn Greenway
is tearing it up for the Lions. She is among the national leaders in scoring and recently scored her 3,000th career point. The assist for the milestone bucket came from her seventh-grade sister, Beckett Greenway
, who is averaging 4.8 points.
A top Class of 2026 player, Maddyn Greenway has 701 points this season after scoring 1,019 as a freshman. She helped Providence Academy to a Class AA title as an eighth grader scoring 783 points while dropping 501 in seventh grade.
The other legacy player on the Lions is Hope Counts
, granddaughter of Mel Counts, who played for seven NBA teams over his 12-year career. She is averaging 8.5 points per night after averaging 9.0 as a freshman.
Hope's sister, Grace, was on last year's squad and now plays at the University of Minnesota-Duluth.
