The 6’4, 275lb tackle played for Dubois this year at left tack and defensive end. He is the #51 recruit in PA in the state of PA out of every position on 247sports and #90 nationally as a DE but will play OT at the next level. He was a team captain this year and 3 year letter man. Peterson had 5 offers for college and high interest from big schools like PSU,Pitt, Delaware, Rutgers, Buffalo, Temple.
“I officially visited Mercyhurst last weekend and had a good deal from them and I went to IUP this weekend for my official visit and after already being there before I just fell in love with it. Coaching staff, and university and business program I couldn’t beat it. I will play offensive tackle there. I have a very good relationship with OL coach mike Campolo and can’t wait to get up there this summer. They are in my opinion the top team in the PSAC and I can’t wait to be a part of it.” Favorite quote: “win the day.”
It’ll be hard going away from my twin brother Brad, (who announced his decision to attend Gallaumet U.) since we’ve been side by side my whole life but he is going to dominate and fit well there and I’m very happy with my decision at IUP”.
