Colorado football star Shedeur Sanders took a strong trait from both of his parents, Coach Prime and Pilar Sanders, and paid it forward according to Essentially Sports' Anushika Laha: constant support and appreciation.

"In Shedeur’s recent Instagram post, the young athlete is seen posing in a light pink sweatshirt and blue denim," Laha prefaced before saying, "He captioned the series of images with, 'At my lowest all I had was GOD don’t ever think I need you -' Father and Coach Deion Sanders who has often been a devout messenger of devout ideas showed his affirmation in the comments with, 'Preach Son.' While mother Pilar joined in on the support by commenting with flame and heart emoticons. The constant support and appreciation strengthen the Sanders family as a unit, which has also become a value that the younger Sanders imbibe."

Sanders parlayed the support and appreciation from his parents into defending Joe Milton III after the Tennessee quarterback was called out by Pro Football Focus's primary Twitter account for his multiple interceptions during the Senior Bowl.

Pilar Sanders called 'ultimate cheerleader' of Colorado football sons and daughter Shelomi

Essentially Sports' Arunima Guchhait rightfully called Pilar the "ultimate cheerleader" for her and Coach Prime's daughter, Shelomi, a CU women's basketball player under long-time Buffs head coach JR Payne.

"Whilе Coach Primе commands thе Colorado fiеld with QB Shеdеur and safеty Shilo, Pilar plays a diffеrеnt gamе – nurturing Shеlomi’s baskеtball drеams and championing hеr vеnturеs," Guchhait wrote.

"Pilar Sandеrs is not just a mothеr; shе is Shеlomi’s ultimatе chееrlеadеr and bеst friеnd. The magic of thеir connеction illuminatеs social mеdia and rеcеntly, Shеlomi unlеashеd an Instagram storm, spamming Pilar with thе swееtеst birthday wishеs, giving us a front-row sеat to thеir еxtraordinary mothеr daughtеr bond."

There's not a secret ingredient for why Shedeur, Shilo, and Shelomi are all Division I athletes playing at the prestigious University of Colorado. The Sanders family is a rock solid support system, and Coach Prime and Pilar have done an amazing job raising their kids even after ending their marriage.
