Deion Sanders went out on a large limb to advocate that his son, quarterback Shedeur Sanders, be among the candidates for the Heisman Trophy.
A campaign is reportedly being rolled out in support of the sophomore who currently has a 14 to 1 touchdown to interception ratio to go along with a 75 percent completion percentage through the first four games of the regular season.
“I think we’re in it,” Deion Sanders told The Clarion-Ledger in reference to Heisman talk. “We did what we wanted to do.
“Now you get to put on Tupac ‘All Eyez on Me’. (Shedeur) gets to play that song. Now he just has to do what he’s been doing thus far. I like his maturation. I like his growth. First and foremost, I love the way the line has protected him and receivers are doing their job as well. (Offensive coordinator) Coach Brett (Bartolone) is calling a heck of a game.”
