Buffaloes star Shiloh Sanders hugged his father Deion after scoring with pick-six in Saturday night’s tight clash with Colorado State – but LeBron James feels he’s missing a trick.
Tensions between the two Colorado rivals are at an all-time high after a public feud between Dieng and coach Jay Norvell this week.
Norvell caused quite a stir by slamming “Coach Prime” for his signature hat and sunglasses attire, and Sanders responded by handing out sunglasses to his entire team and ESPN’s First Take marketing team , which earned his collection of custom Blenders $1.2 million from Friday sales.
Both teams had to be separated during warm-ups before Saturday’s game, and tempers flared between players while Shedeur Sanders, Deon’s other son, was warming up.

James would like to see Hilo perform his father Deion’s famous high step before scoring
As for Hilo, he made his mark on the game early in the first quarter by scoring at pick six.
The 23-year-old intercepted the ball from 80 yards and ran straight over to complete a brilliant turnover, and he rushed straight to his father on the sidelines to celebrate.
Deion hugged his son after his incredible sixth pick, but LeBron was disappointed to see him not recreate his father’s famous “high step” before scoring on sixth.
“SHILO SHOULD HAVE HIDDEN ALL THE WAY TO THE ZONE!!!!!!! Ayyyyeeeeeee’,” the basketball legend wrote on the X, along with laughing, dancing and shrugging emojis.
Dion, who played 14 seasons in the NFL, was known throughout his career for his exaggerated high stride before touchdowns.
It’s been a pretty big week for the Sanders family following Deion’s highly publicized feud with Norvell.
Norvell took an apparent swipe at Buffalo’s coach Wednesday night while speaking on his weekly radio show.
“I was interviewed by ESPN today. I don’t care if they heard it in Boulder. I told them, I took my hat off, I took my glasses off,” he said on “The Coaches Show.”
Dieng became the center of controversy this week after rival coach Jay Norvell mocked his signature hat and sunglasses attire.
“I said, when I talk to adults, I take off my hat, take off my glasses. That’s what my mother taught me.
Coach Sanders also appeared on “First Take” where he continued to stir up trouble between him and Norvell, handing sunglasses to Shannon Sharpe, Stephen A. Smith and Molly Kerim.
The crowd in Boulder erupted when Sanders inadvertently handed his frames to a field worker while wearing sunglasses. As expected on Saturday night, many students also wore sunglasses to support Sanders.
Shiloh also responded to Norvell’s comments on “The Pat McAfee Show.”
“Bruch, why do they do this to themselves every week?” I asked.
