Barry Sanders Jr. has a lot to live up to if he ever wants to be mentioned in the same football breath as his father, but he's already on his way there. Yahoo Sports showed video on Sept. 29, 2013, of Barry Sanders Jr.'s action on the field on Saturday night, and he is already looking like his dad taught him plenty.
Barry Sanders Jr. is a sophomore at Stanford, and he wanted everyone to know that he is trying to help his team win. They did just that on Saturday by demolishing Washington State 58-17, but he showed the world much more.
He gave big-time flashbacks to football fans everywhere as he had a beautiful run late in the second quarter.
After catching a short screen pass, Barry Sanders Jr. moved, juked, and evaded defenders all over the field. Longtime football fans can see the same movements in him that his father, Barry Sanders, displayed for many years for the Detroit Lions.
Some of those poor defenders for Washington State looked as if they ate some dirt and had to re-tape their ankles after that run.
Barry Sanders Jr. is still fighting for playing time though, but his collegiate career is still young. He finished Saturday night's game with just three carried for 34 yards, but that one catch and run was more than enough to have everyone remember him and his name.
