Let’s take a closer look at the rising star and his promising career in the world of football.
Shilo Sanders found himself in a hospital bed after a tough defeat against the Oregon Ducks, where the Buffaloes suffered a significant 42-6 loss. Speaking with Well Off Media on YouTube, Shilo described his painful injuries, emphasizing his dedication to the game by saying, “I can’t say I didn’t play hard, I’m peeing blood right now.” While the precise diagnosis wasn’t disclosed, Shilo suspected that a tackle during the game may have led to a kidney injury, necessitating an emergency room visit.
Head coach Deion Sanders, affectionately known as Coach Prime, offered reassuring news about Shilo’s condition.
“He’s doing better,” Coach Sanders stated. “We went to the hospital right after we landed. He’s doing much better. We’re praying that he heals and he’s playing this weekend. He’s a valuable part of our secondary and our team defensively.”
Coach Prime emphasized Shilo’s contributions, describing him as a player who brings a desirable level of physicality to the team and serves as one of the voices on the defense.
“(Shilo’s) one of the voices on the defense, and he plays with a certain physicality that we desire and we want. And he’s given me daily updates, trust me. I’m praying that he can play as a father as well as a coach.”
Despite the challenging loss to Oregon and some pre-game trash talk, Shilo Sanders and the Buffaloes are determined to seek redemption in their upcoming matchup against USC. However, their quest for victory faces added difficulty due to the uncertainty surrounding Shilo’s ability to play.
