Player Profile: DayShawn Peterson, Alvin


How do you feel you played individually last season?

Really well.  I felt like I was able to give our team a boost we needed to get things rolling in Alvin. 

How is the off season going for you and what are the goals for this upcoming season?

I’ve had a great off-season.  I’ve put on 15 pounds and have improved my speed through track and workouts.  My main goal is to help our team win, but I have a goal of having 1,500 yards rushing.  300 more than last year. 

Do you feel you got better and how do you feel the team will play this season?

Yes,  this off-season has been a tough one, but it has made us closer as a team.  We have fun together and everyone on the team has a genuine love for each other.  I think we can definitely improve on last season 

What is the number one thing you are working on to improve your game?

Improving my stand and getting off the ball quicker.  Blocking without the ball in my hand. 

A teammate you see putting in the work that you think will have an impact this season.

Trenton Peterson, my brother will make an impact on the defensive side of the ball.  Brayden Griffin.  He has earned the starting QB spot and is ready to lead this team as a junior!

Highlight of your athletic career so far

Rushing for 256 yards and 2 touchdowns against Strake Jesuit last year and also eclipsing the 1,000 yard mark against Taylor week 10.

If not playing in the NFL, where do you see yourself in 10 years?

I would like to become a veterinarian.
