Frustrated by His Star WR's Absence, Shedeur Sanders Gets into a 'Playful Scuffle' With Travis Hunter; "You Playing or No?"

Shedeur Sanders, despite being the highest NIL valued player, faced disappointment as EA Sports snubbed him twice for their College Football 25 cover. However, in their recent reveal, Travis Hunter, the Colorado’ double threat took the center space raising the teams’ heads high with pride. Though quite the miss for their quarterback, this didn’t dampen Shedeur’s spirits or his support for his teammate.

EA Sports’ new cover for College Football 25 featured Travis Hunter along with Quinn Ewers and Donovan Edwards. In response, Sanders showcased his dedication and team spirit by reacting to the post with a fire emoji, hyping up his primary target on the field.

The reaction from the Buffs’ star quarterback highlights the closeness that the two young talents share even outside the field.

Though not EA Sports’ cover boy, Shedeur Sanders is already emerging as the top choice for next year’s draft with fifth position in ESPN’s mock. This doesn’t come as a surprise as Deion Sanders’ team is preparing for their second season in college football under his regime. And the thrill for the season has only begun with EA Sports’ new cover editions.
