 "For y'all three just to want to put it together, so you'll make sure I'm straight when y'all gone is unbelievable son," Deion said in a video posted to Deion Jr.'s Well Off Media YouTube account. "It almost provokes a tear. ... my three sons, want to do for this for me, wow. This is awesome."

The elder Sanders bought a house in Longmont, Colorado, last March.

Shilo and Shedeur Sanders are both set to play one final season for their father at Colorado before heading to the 2025 NFL Draft. The elder Sanders signed a five-year contract in December 2022 that will keep him at the school long after his two sons declare for the draft.
