In a shocking turn of events, a Colorado Buffaloes football player has filed for bankruptcy. The football player filed for bankruptcy shortly after a $11.89 million damages judgment was filed against him. The ruling comes from a 2015 assault charge involving his high school staff.

Shilo Sanders is a 24-year-old football player who plays defensive back for the Colorado Buffalos. Sanders is the son of NFL Hall of Fame cornerback and the team’s head coach, Deion Sanders. 

In October 2023, Sanders filed for bankruptcy under Chapter 7 of the Colorado bankruptcy code. Shilo Sanders filed for bankruptcy in October of last year, claiming to have only $320,477 to his name despite his NIL worth supposedly being $1.1 million. 

This comes after the March 2022 judgment in which his former high school security, John Darjean, was awarded almost $12 million. The money in which Darjean was awarded comes from a civil assault charge in 2015.
