16-year old Deion Sanders Jr. is more like his father than not. Check out Rivals.com’s featured piece on the young athlete to find out how similar he is to his dad, NFL legend Deion Sanders:

He’s a multi-sport athlete … just like his dad.

And the facial resemblance – with a smile that can light up a room – is there. As is the quickness and the sinewy but deceptively strong body.

But Flower Mound (Texas) Marcus football coach Bryan Erwin really saw how much Deion Sanders Jr. was like his famous father on a broken play during a spring scrimmage vs. Irving (Texas) High.

It was a play-action pass play. Sanders – new to the quarterback position – felt pressure from the backside as he set to throw. So he reversed field, breaking one tackle and outrunning everyone else en route to a 25-yard gain.

“That’s just the type of athleticism that he has,” Erwin said. “If he doesn’t like what he sees, he’s going to take off, and we give him freedom to do that. He’s got the green light, and that’s where he’s at his best.” Read More

  1. If he is talented great.. but BCK can you stop showing these kids that have tattoos at young ages(Dion’s son and Neffe’s daughter) are both underage with tattoos.

    I know you can get a tattoo with your parents consent and all but this is making a big impression on younger children.

    My brother is dying to get a tattoo now and he is only 15. I had to tell him when he gets a job, his own house and own money, yea fine but they think they can do what these celebrity kids can do.

    Us regular folk don’t have it made, we can’t put tats everywhere and make money!

    • I cannot stand tattoos on anyone. But I especially dislike them when we get them. Wasn’t it bad enough that we were branded when we were slaves? Now we brand ourselves? It’s very horrible skin graffiti to me. You’re better off having acne. At least that can be removed and underlying skin returned to normal.

  2. Deion has a beautiful fam. I miss their reality show. His wife is going to be on Football Wives. Guess they saw Bball Wives and decided they wanted their own show. lol
