Born in Saint Cloud, Minnesota, Alex Peterson provides Duluth Football Club with a variety of defensive skills playing as a center back or a defensive midfielder. He enjoys the ability that both positions give him to build the attack out from the back and provide leadership. Alex started playing as a CB while at Drake University.
Words cannot quite describe how key Alex’s father was to his soccer development. He was a center back at St. Thomas and the Minnesota Thunder, even spending some time with the USA reserve squad. He coached Alex throughout his childhood and drove him across the Midwest to make sure he could play and develop his game.
Alex’s first soccer memory goes back to playing in the Schwann’s USA Cup in Blaine. The tournament provided many learning experiences playing against teams from other parts of the country and the world. Alex supports Manchester United and had the chance to see them play at their beloved home stadium, Old Trafford, in 2014.
