However, when Shedeur Sanders wants to tease his father, continuing the Sanders’ household tradition of banters, Deion Sanders does not spare his son. In a recent Well Off Media video, Shedeur Sanders was defying Prime’s statement that he needs his father at all times. To shut him up in a playful way, Deion Sanders reminded him of him lending his hand to the QB when he encountered his first hurdle at the Jackson State. ““Your first time you play with that Jackson, when you was going through your little stuff. No stats was going downhill part,” asserted Prime, taking the deserved credits for all the times he helped his son out.

Shedeur Sanders spent the freshman year of his eligibility at Jackson State. There, he etched his names with all the awards he won, including SWAC Freshman of the Year and Jerry Rice FCS National Freshman of the Year. The QB also ranked second in passing yards (3,231) and passing touchdowns (30) with only eight interceptions. He led the franchise in completion and completion percentage as well.

While Shedeur Sanders’ constant practice to make himself a better QB would always be applaudable, his father Deion Sanders’ contribution in keeping the flame of motivation burning in him can’t be ignored. Arguably, Deion Sanders’ intrusion into his sons’ lives has bettered their off-field image as compared to their on-field image. Sheduer Sanders ranks at the No. 2 in On3’s NIL rankings and at number 1 in college football, with his NIL valuation of $3.8 million.
