Meet Barry Sanders Jr., the son of former Detroit Lions football great Barry Sanders. Check out video of this young football star below.
Barry Sanders, Jr. is certainly a chip off the old blcok, as the youngster pulled off a 64 yard touchdown on a reverse play last Saturday during his Heritage High playoff game against Lincoln Christian. As you can see in the video below, the 14-year-old freshman broke free of a few tackles and jumped over another to give him his ninth touchdown of his high school career.
Although he’s not a starter, he does his thing in the second half, thus far rushing for 637 yards in the season.
“The defense gets tired as the game keeps going, and I’ve found a role. It’s been a lot of fun,” Sanders said.
He is hoping that his father will be on hand to watch him Saturday night, when they take on Chandler in the Class 2A Oklahoma state championship.
