Despite retiring too soon, former Detroit Lions running back Barry Sanders is still considered one of the greatest of all time. In fact, if you are a Lions fan, you probably think it’s a no-brainer.
Sanders has always been a special player, dating all the way back to his high school days and then during his time at Oklahoma State.
In honor of Sanders’ 53rd birthday, we take a look back to when he tweeted out some of his own high school highlights.
Imagine being one of the young fellas trying to tackle the GOAT!

What an honor and privilege it was to watch the greatest of all-time.
