    Default Sanders Long Time Connection to USC and Area

    Cool article highlighting the Sander family, specifically Deion, connection to Carolina and the area. Think this connection should help us get the younger brother to come as well.


    Cromer, who played baseball at Lexington High School and then USC, and Deion Sanders were teammates with the Cincinnati Reds in 2001. It was the last season of Major League Baseball for each, but it started a friendship between the two that came full circle this year when Shilo Sanders signed to play defensive back for the Gamecocks.
    That means Shilo Sanders and Cromer’s daughter Ashlyn Cromer will both be in Williams-Brice Stadium on Saturdays this fall. Ashlyn is a sophomore cheerleader for the Gamecocks. It won’t be the first time she and Shilo been around each other.
    That was 18 years ago, when their parents were friends and traveling partners.
    “Life is crazy to think that 18 years have passed and our kids used to play together,” D.T. said. “Our wives ended up getting to be pretty close and they went to games together. I can remember at some point Ashlyn and Shilo in their car seats next to each other with the wives going on a road trip.”

    Eh Iím not so sure... the younger brother wants to play QB and if Doty, Hilinski and Joyner are as good as advertised that kid may have to sit on the bench but if FSU does not improve we could have a chance.

    Joyner will never be the qb but he is too good to have on the sideline. Im sure they will figure it out.

    They are years apart.. by the time Sanders is a RS Soph or Junior it will be 2024.. Doty would basically be a senior by then

    Thought the younger Sanders was a 2021 prospect which is only a year behind Doty
    am I wrong ? Or is he a 2022 guy ?
