Shedeur Sanders, son of NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders, shared an Instagram photo in celebration of his father’s birthday. Deion, who sports a broad smile in the picture, is no doubt very proud of his last son’s latest achievements.


The former American football player, in his white hoodie and face cap, can be seen in the photo showing off what looks like a wristwatch on his son’s hand. Shedeur captions the image:

"Happy birthday dad @deionsanders Love you"

Deion, who also had a successful baseball career, is delighted to have Shedeur continue his impressive legacy. Last June, the youngster took toTwitterr to share the news of a scholarship offer from Louisiana State University (LSU). The proposal was the ninth so far that the budding footballer had received.


The offer from LSU Tigers came after Shedeur, one of the foremost top dual-threat prospects in the nation, caught the eye of coaches after displaying an impressive performance at a prospect camp. LSU’s offer came in after eight other notable schools had reached out to the 6-foot, 175-pound sophomore. Other scholarship offers on his plate include UTEP, Oregon, Louisville, and Florida State, his famous father’s alma mater.

Shedeur’s LSU tweet came a couple of hours after he tweeted about an offer from the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP). He shared:

“Blessed to say I’ve Received an Offer from UTEP. Glory to God”

Immediately, Deion retweeted his son’s tweet with a comment that reflected just how proud he is of the talented sophomore. The current offensive coordinator at Trinity Christian high school in Cedar hill, Texas, had one of the most enviable football runs, playing for top teams like the Washington Redskins, Dallas Cowboys, and the Baltimore Ravens.

His sons, Shedeur and Shilo, are both on the Trinity Christian high school football team. Shedeur starts for the team while Shilo is following in their father’s footsteps as a defensive back.
