The reporter asked some interesting questions to Coach Prime about his quarterback son. She started off by quoting how his son doesn’t get the due respect because he is the son of a Hall of Famer. Sanders revealed that if his son were to come out of school with such skills, without being associated with him, he would have gotten 5 stars, not that it matters to anyone.
