Barry Sanders Jr. was destined to be a great high school running back. One need look no further than his name to know running a football is practically in his blood.
The son of one of the NFL's most electric performers is making headlines of his own across Oklahoma, using some of his father's elusiveness and impressive speed to torch opposing defenses. Through his Heritage Hall (Okla.) High School Chargers' 5-0 start, Sanders has rushed for 970 yards and 14 touchdowns. A huge chunk of those stats came in a monstrous performance against Tulsa NOAH on Friday night, when he scored five touchdowns and ran for 313 yards on 13 carries. At one point he scored three touchdowns in the span of only four runs. His highlight reel runs -- like this one -- have gained plenty of notoriety, which has put the spotlight on the junior running back's eventual collegiate choice.
