How Snoop Dogg’s Son Is Creating His Own Lane Through Football
Snoop Dogg has a dream.
Even after all of the platinum records, world tours, millions earned and nearly three decades of being at the top, there’s still something inspiring the West Coast legend every day.
Enter his 17-year-old son, Cordell Broadus.
In the first episode of ESPN’s new series, “Snoop & Son,” cameras followed the Broadus family during Cordell’s pivotal senior season, and Snoop shared how important his son’s journey is to him. He said,
Considering that I started him playing at 5 years old and to know that all these years of work has translated him into becoming a collegiate football player… That would be big… So this is my dream.
At 6’2″ and 192 pounds, the class of 2015 wide receiver for the vaunted Bishop Gorman Gaels in Las Vegas, Nevada is ranked the 130th player in the nation according to ESPN.
Major Division I schools such as USC, UCLA, Florida State and LSU have been recruiting the four-star prospect and he’s still undecided on his college choice.
And if you had any questions if he can actually ball, let his highlight reel do the talking.
But, what makes Cordell such a special prospect at the next level and what has so many of the major Division I colleges calling is his rare combination of raw physical talent and hype.
Being the son of Snoop comes with tremendous pressure not only from scouts but from Snoop himself. Snoop said,
I’m to the point where I can relax a little bit. And to be able to enjoy the fruits of my labor is to watch my son play football. I think it’s hard for him living in my shadow if he doesn’t create his own lane.
Not to mention, Snoop shows up to every game with friends like Flava Flav, creating a buzz most high school players don’t have to deal with.
However, when it comes to going to work both on the field and at practice, Cordell proved he’s a winner.
Despite his father’s frequent connection with marijuana, Cordell has lived above the influence and does not smoke weed and is focused on being the greatest athlete he can become.
And Snoop said it best:
It’s good for me but it’s bad for you.
No matter which college Cordell chooses, Snoop will be his hardest critic and biggest fan.
He knows how much hard work it takes to get to the top, and at the same time, he’s able to see some of that same determination he had in his son. The legendary rapper continued,
Football gives him the opportunity step out and create a legacy for the Broadus family and himself like I could never do.
As for which school Cordell will attend before being able to seriously consider a career in the NFL, we may have an early clue.
