Most movie sequels simply are not as good as the first. That’s not always the case when it comes to football players (Mark Ingram Jr. won a Heisman, something his father never came close to).

Why bring this up? Check out these high school highlights from Barry Sanders Sr. and his son Barry Sanders Jr.





Sanders Jr. is a running back in the class of 2012 and holds double-digit scholarship offers from the likes of Alabama, Auburn, Notre Dame and, of course, Oklahoma State. Although some consider the Cowboys the favorite because his father was a star there, Sanders has openly looked at other schools. Already named a participant for next year’s Army All-American Bowl, Sanders will be someone to keep an eye out for – and not just because of his last name.

Speaking of Sanders Jr.s, Little Deion is somewhat of a stud.

Gabbo- Maybe you should pay attention to the lions more. Watch out for the Lions next year. Nimrod.

Sure moves like his Dad...nice use of the Stiff Arm too...most impressive was the shifting the ball to the outer arm...something most college RB's cannot do well, and he does it pretty fluidly. Good Luck to him, as I loved watching his Dad.

Have to agree with you here. In the first play Jr takes off and gets a good 10 step lead in about 1.2 seconds. He looks incredibly fast. His second level speed looks crazy. You can tell he is taught well because he doesn't just try to run fast. He works slow around the edge to find the hole and as soon as he does it looks like he turns on a turbo booster or something.

Meh.  Senior looks to have the same moves as he did in the pros.  He was breaking tackles and had that amazing stop, turn and go running style that juked defenders out of their shoes.  Junior looks very fast and hardly touched.  I would have liked to see him break a few tackles as opposed to just out running a slow defense.

Not too surprising. He comes from good stock.

The Lions should draft him right now, and ruin another great career with mediocrity!
