Barry Sanders Jr. Touchdown Run
Barry Sanders Has A Kid, And He's Sort Of Good
Barry Sanders was by far my favorite NFL player of all time. I'm not even ashamed to admit that I have a replica Sanders Detroit Lions jersey. In my mind, he's the best running back in NFL history next to Jim Brown. So, as you can guess, I was devastated when he retired early. But the good news is that while human cloning is quite yet available, at least Sanders had a kid.
Yep, Barry Sanders Jr. is a freshman high school running back in Oklahoma at Heritage Hall (private school) and he's already doing stuff like what you see above. That 64-yard run came during the Oklahoma Class 2A State Semi-Finals.
And as I said, the scary thing is he's only a freshman. He's already bigger than his dad, at least height-wise. I'm not sure he'll ever match the tree trunks for legs that his dad had. Anyway, here an interview that was done with Sanders Jr. before the football season started this year.
I'd expect him to be playing at Oklahoma State (dad's alma mater), or potentially some even bigger program, in 4 years, to say the least.
