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).

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.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
