Ex-Woodland Hills, Penn State star Miles Sanders buys mom new car
Miles Sanders was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles less than five weeks ago, and the former Woodland Hills High School and Penn State star running back signed his NFL entry-level contract less than three weeks ago.
Perhaps his first major purchase wasn’t for himself.
Sanders bought his mother a new car, as detailed in a post on his verified Instagram account.
“You deserve the world momma,” Sanders wrote. “(E)verything you’ve done and taught me help me be the man I am today, my gift to you ❤️ I dreamed to do something like this, I Love You”
The post was accompanied by several photos of Mar Sanders in front of a maroon Lexus SUV with a large red bow on the roof (or, in one case, on her head).
I love you mama❤️ https://t.co/Iye0OxZgM3

Sanders signed a four-year, $5.35 million contract after he was taken No. 53 overall in the second round by the Eagles last month.
Sanders had 1,274 rushing yards and nine touchdowns as a junior last season for Penn State after he had backed up All-American Saquon Barkley his first two NFL seasons.
Sanders was a five-star recruit out of Woodland Hills, where he had 4,573 rushing yards and 59 touchdowns.
