With each football season, bumps and bruises are guaranteed when performing on the gridiron. Injuries are a part of football and parents and fans hope for the best when athletes perform at such a high caliber. Deion Sanders’ son and starting safety, Shilo Sanders, is currently recovering from a kidney injury from the Buffs’ matchup against the Oregon Ducks.
The team is definitely feeling the difference while one of their star defensive players is out, but Shilo still plans to motivate and support his teammates.
I’m Feeling Good
Sanders said he was feeling fine and could’ve played against USC. However, he followed the expert advice of the University of Colorado’s medical trainers and sat out.
“They’re trying to be really cautious of my kidney,” Sanders said. “It’s nothing life-threatening or anything like that. I was trying to play.”
I Know How to Motivate
When it comes to the team dynamic, Sanders said he likes “leading by example.”
“I’ve never been like a vocal leader like that, but I just use confidence and that rubs off on other people,” he said. “Especially when you go out and play with confidence.”
Shilo Sanders’ confidence and determination could be a sign that he will soon rejoin the team.
