Like father, like son: Sanderson’s continue local sports tradition

By Joseph Hayes

It’s not an easy time for sports fans.

Most nights when tired sports fans would walk into their homes over the years, they would be accustomed to finding their favorite teams on television.

And if their favorite games weren’t on, maybe it was a random sports game that would welcome them home on a tired night home after work.

The past few nights, all of that seems to have changed, as sports fans around the world have had to adjust to various lifestyles.

Gone are thing’s like the late night frustration of not being able to find a good game on TV.

That’s hard when there are no good games on at all.

When you look at television these days, you will hopefully see a past performance from one of your favorite teams that will bring a few memories back to mind. I know I recently have seen a few Detroit Tigers games that have brought a few smiles to my face and jogged my mind of a few times from days before.

Those are the type of stories that DeAngielo Sanderson Sr. and his son DeAngielo Sanderson Jr. are walking around talking about right now as they reflect on their love of the game.

They too, miss sports.

It’s not hard to find many local fans all around just like them. The Port Huron High School graduates continue to search for things to watch on a daily basis to bring them the joy that they have found through sports over the years.

Usually, you will find them at Big Reds games cheering on their former high school. Both were star football players at the school.

Most recently, Jr. was the Big Reds quarterback, who led Port Huron on the gridiron. Now, he’s already found a love of coaching and spearheading the next generation.

His father, Sr., continues to watch along and tell stories about his speed, as they reflect on their love of the game and what sports mean to them.

Most recently they caught up with me and discussed their overall appreciation for sports and how they have used the documentary The Last Dance to reflect on sports overall.
