Deion Sanders is not the only popular one in his family. Just like their father, his kids are also well known amongst fans for their pursuit of different passions in life. While the athletic genes of Coach Prime run through his children, not all of them followed in their father’s footsteps into the world of professional sports. His eldest son, Deion Sanders Jr, initially played football for three seasons at Southern Methodist University. His father even called out the SMU coach for not allowing his son enough playing time on the field. But Deion Sanders Jr decided to hang up his cleats and move on to the world of business. 

Deion Sanders also recently caused a stir on social media after sharing a post that talked about spanking children to impart the value of respect for others. Despite Sanders’ controversial take on parenting, he is still proud of his children for making a name for themselves in their respective fields. And his 29-year-old son recently took to social media to show his appreciation for his father in his support of pursuing his own dreams.
