How Deion Sanders' son ended up declaring bankruptcy: 'Kind of stunning’

As a 24-year-old college football player at the University of Colorado, Shilo Sanders has quite a problem on his hands:


More than $11 million in debt.

And now there are court proceedings that question his wealth and where he’s keeping it.

How did it even reach this point?

According to court filings by his attorney, it’s primarily because Sanders − son of Colorado coach Deion Sanders – didn’t show up for a civil trial in Texas in March 2022. But the case raises other questions about that, including why he didn’t have an attorney looking out for him back then and whether Sanders can use the bankruptcy court to erase that debt as desired.
