Colorado coach Deion Sanders has lifted the lid on what makes his quarterback Shedeur so special, as the father-son duo drive a football revolution in Boulder.
‘Coach Prime’ has won both of his matches in charge of Colorado after arriving in the offseason. The Buffaloes were a woeful 1-11 last season before Sanders was hired as coach and engaged in a roster overhaul that brought in 84 new players – including his son Shedeur.
On Monday, following Saturday’s win over rivals Nebraska, Sanders joined ‘Undisputed’ to discuss his son’s success.
‘Coach Prime’ believes one of the key weapons in Shedeur’s armory is his experience – the quarterback may only be 21 but he has barely missed a game during high school and college.
‘It’s hard to fool him at this age and stage in his career because he’s started every game since he was a freshman and he started every game in high school,’ Sanders said.

The quarterback followed his father to Colorado and has had a brilliant start to the season
‘So some college quarterbacks – although they may be starting college – they probably sat for a year or didn’t start their whole high school career.
‘This guy has started every football game in high school and every game in college – that’s a lot of football, that’s a lot of repetiton and he does not take plays off – especially in practise.
‘So he prepares like that and what he sees is unbelievable. I love his vision and his thirst for the game. He wants to be great, he really does.’
Sanders believes this experience – and his son’s high standards – make it very hard for opposition teams to lay traps that ensnare the 21-year-old.
‘He’s a bonafide leader. He’s very calm, very patient in the pocket, he studies so darn much – there’s not too many things you could trick him with. You can’t trick him in coverage or anything like that,’ Sanders added.
‘He gets upset if we break off a route one yard too shallow, or we’re not running our routes at the depth and speed they need to run them. Those are the kind of things that frustrate him.’
