Adrian Peterson so good he gets 3 Wheaties boxes

Posted: Updated:
MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -

Getting your face on a Wheaties box is a rite of passage reserved for champions, MVPs and gold medalists. Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is so good, he's getting his face on three new limited edition Wheaties boxes.

Peterson was at the KFAN studios Tuesday morning to unveil two of the new boxes featuring the "determined" and "hungry" NFL MVP.

Wheaties called Peterson an "inspiration both on and off the football field."

Peterson dedicates his time to several charities, including his All Day Foundation to raise awareness and funds for programs that help foster the futures of at-risk kids.

Peterson also grabbed an ESPY Award for Comeback Athlete of the Year in July after rushing for 2,097 rushing yards last season -- nine yards short of the NFL single-season record -- in a shorter-than-expected return from an ACL tear.
