    Default Like Father, Like Son

    Former Detroit Lions RB great Barry Sanders has a son-Barry Sanders Jr. who is a junior at Heritage Hall High School in Oklahoma. This past Friday he ran for 313 yards on 13 carries and 5 rushing TDs.

    He runs like his dad.

    He also seems to be a pretty cool kid too.

    I'm giving it a 2-4 year window. Looking for improvement in all areas. Redskins, you're on the clock.

    He even plays a little defense.

    He's not quite as shifty as the old man.....yet....but he has good speed and his father's balance. He's already at a different level than his current competition and I'm guessing he'll only get better when he gets to college. His father is still the best college player I ever saw so I'm guessing he'll go to a school that will feature him instead of just making him a cog in the machine.

    I'm guessing he stays in state and either plays at Dad's alma mater, Oklahoma St. or he heads to Norman to play for Bob Stoops.

    He WOULD look good with an arrow on his helmet, wouldn't he?

    Hard to tell in highlight videos, but while he does look pretty good (speed, for instance), he's not quite the same as his dad.

    But then again, no one looks like his dad.

    As long as he stays away from Alabama. I already hate Nick Saban and his team doesn't need any more help.

    Face piles of trials with smiles. It riles them to believe that you perceive the web they weave.

    Mine too. Yes, please sign him up.

    And Om, yes please.

    I do remember watching Walter Payton's son light it up at the U a few seasons ago.....but I'm not sure he had his father's drive, and wound up in the CFL. Still.....imagine playing against Walter Payton's son in college. The kid really stood out at that level.

    But Barry's son looks better to my eyes.
