A Talented Nepo Baby 😤

I’ve always been against the odds in different ways. – Shedeur Sanders

The latest college football news has Colorado Buffaloes star quarterback Shedeur Sanders front and center. A clip of Sanders discussing his high school career has since gone viral, but it’s pretty clear few people are actually listening to the quote.

You can check it out for yourself below, but I will give you the TLDR version. Sanders essentially said he went to a private school and beat the odds to emerge as a top prospect ahead of the 2025 NFL draft.

Look, no one is confusing Sanders’ journey with Rocky, but a 37-second search on the Google machine by yours truly revealed that the playmaker actually has a point which I will get to in a bit.

Unless you can send me some sort of AI-generated part of the press conference that does not exist, Sanders wasn’t making a bold statement about 6A Texas high school football.

Here is the actual quote.

“I came from a private school, so at the end of the day, I dealt with a lot of negativity, a lot of hate, a lot of everything I’ve done dealt with already, year after year,” Sanders said, per Houston Chronicle.

“I came from a small private school. All the other kids were going Power Five, and they went to big Texas 6A schools and stuff. I don’t see those same kids around. I don’t see them excelling in their programs or whatever they’re doing. So, I’ve always been against the odds in different ways.”

 

Facts: Shedeur Is Outplaying Most QBs Ranked Ahead of Him in HS

Sanders adds an important qualifier, “against the odds in different ways.” The quarterback has always dealt with the weight of expectation as the son of a Hall of Famer. Look, I am not saying to feel sorry for Sanders, but how many sons of great NFL players do you see also becoming great athletes?

A quick look back at the 247Sports recruiting rankings from 2021 shows Sanders was just a three-star prospect rated as the No. 75 player in Texas and the No. 37 rated quarterback in the country.

As the angry Twitter mob will tell you, there are Texas quarterbacks from this class who are doing quite well. Quinn Ewers and Jalen Milroe headline this list of players.

To Sanders’ point, there are a lot of Texas quarterbacks that were rated above him that you probably have never heard of in college football. These players include Behren Morton, Eli Stowers, Kyron Drones, and Dematrius Davis just to name a few.

 

Sanders Is Taking an Unconventional Path to the NFL

Then there is the pathway Sanders has taken to be one of the faces of college football. Sanders started at an HBCU (Jackson State) before transferring to CU football. The Buffs have not exactly been a hotbed for producing future NFL quarterbacks.

Ladies and gentlemen of the internet jury, I present to you the case for Coach Prime’s son to be vindicated from the social media trolls. Sanders is saying there were some dudes ranked above me who went to big Texas schools, and I am crushing those homies with my play.

As for the odds, chances are there were plenty of haters when people realized Sanders was from THAT Sanders family and were skeptical he would be as good as his dad.

Let’s stop short of building Sanders a statue, but even Michael Jordan had to embellish a few things for motivation. Lastly, I present you with a few Shedeur Sanders stats from 2023: 3,230 passing yards, 27 touchdowns, and 3 interceptions while completing 69.3% of his passes.

Now give me Deion Sanders Colorado theme music!
