Second Generation Athletes Primed to Make A Splash in the NFL
All too often, pro athletes have kids who can never find a way to step out of the shadow cast by their famous parents. Sometimes, the people athletes pick as spouses are so pathetically uncoordinated that their kids abilities are watered down worse than whiskey in a dive bar.
Every so often, however, the skill translates effortlessly from one generation to another and we get a sequel to the careers of some of the all time greats. Here's a little preview of some of the second generation talents who look destined for the NFL spotlight.
Trey Griffey, son of Ken Griffey Jr.
Looks like Ken's kid is not only stepping out of his father's shadow, but he's doing it off the baseball field.
Torii Hunter Jr., son of Torii Hunter
Another baseball kid showing some skill on the gridiron.
Luke Del Rio, son of Jack Del Rio
The Raider's coach probably would have happily plugged in his son in Carr's absence as opposed to Connor Cook.
Barry Sanders Jr., son of Barry Sanders
This kid looks like a beast!
EJ Smith, son of Emmitt Smith
Only in high school, but already showing he got his father's skills.
Michael Irvin Jr., son of Michael Irvin
Going to "The U" like his old man!
