Palestine, Texas (KLTV) - Football fans in Palestine will have a tough decision come this weekend.
At noon on Sunday, the one man wrecking ball and all-pro running back, Palestine native Adrian Peterson, will face America's team...the Cowboys, leaving the citizens of Palestine, a tough choice to root for.
"Dallas has had it before," said Frank Hudgins, a Palestine native, "my daughter went to school with him, so I am rooting for Adrian."
"I hope the Cowboys go all the way, but I am leaning to rooting for Adrian, because I know him and his family," said Keith Bailey.
"He is a good running back, and Favre is better than Romo, so I think Adrian and the Vikings will win," said Palestine native Kevin Foster."
For some, the luster of watching Peterson run, does not mean residents will root for him.
"I am a die-hard Cowboys fan, and I love Adrian because he is from Palestine, but I have to go for the Cowboys, if they weren't in, then I would go for Adrian," said Cowboys superfan and Palestine resident Roy Sharpley.
"I hope he has a good game," said Palestine High School senior Kyle Cargill, "but I want Dallas to win."
"He alone cannot win the game," said Hunter Lawrence, "I think he will have a good game, but Dallas will win."
