Coach Prime's ex-wife and the mother of three of his children, Pilar Sanders, was full of enthusiasm "per usual" while watching her and the Colorado football head coach's daughter Shelomi on the hardwood during a 90-57 blowout win for the Buffs women's basketball team over Oregon on Friday, February 9.

"Pilar Sanders, the ex-wife of Colorado coach Deion Sanders marked her presence to watch the Lady Buffs win their fourth game in the last five with a dominant 90-57 blowout against the Oregon Ducks," Sportskeeda's Cabral Opiyo prefaced before saying, "Although her daughter, Shelomi Sanders only played one minute in the win against the Oregon Ducks, her mother, Pilar Sanders was full of enthusiasm as usual."

Pilar has been a supportive mother of not only Shelomi, but of her other two sons, Shilo and Shedeur, on the gridiron as well -- cheering on from the Folsom Field stands -- since the Sanders family arrived at CU.

First family of Colorado football part of 'broader narrative of family support'

The Sanders clan have been rocks to each other, exemplifying what it means to be a family even with Coach Prime and Pilar having gone their separate ways and serving as an inspiration to families across the country.

As Essentially Sports' Soheli Tarafdar explains, showing up to games is simply part of a "broader narrative of family support."

"The Colorado women’s basketball stands have witnessed more than just Sanders’ exuberant cheers in this season," Tarafdar prefaced before saying, "It transpired into a family union as Deion’s son, Shedeur and ex-wife Pilar have also been part of the collective celebration. The unity among the Sanders family members showcased a broader narrative of family support."

This kind of support is present as the football team is emerging from the pre-Deion Sanders dark ages of the program. Just imagine what it'll be like if/when the Buffs ascend to relevance on a national scale.
