Shilo Sanders claiming huge debt after lawsuit


Shilo Sanders is being questioned regarding his income after filing for bankruptcy in court.

The Jackson State graduate and current Colorado safety filed for bankruptcy last October, claiming $11 million in debt according to USA Today Sports. 

Shilo Sanders filed for bankruptcy following a $12 million judgment against him by John Darjean, a security guard who claims he was assaulted by the then-high school student in 2015. Sanders was just 15 years old and a student at Triple A Academy in Dallas. Darjean claims he was physically assaulted after asking Sanders to turn in his cell phone.

“Suddenly and without warning, Shilo Sanders physically assaulted John Darjean by elbowing Mr. Darjean in the chest and neck and striking Mr. Darjean several times in the chest area and neck area,” Darjean’s lawsuit stated.

Dallas County Court accepted his version of events as Sanders did not show up for court, despite witness accounts that contradicted his story.

Sanders’ lawyers say he didn’t show up to court because he never received notice of the court date. Darjean is now contesting his subsequent bankruptcy case in which Sanders claims he has $11.3 million in debt with just under $500k in assets. 

The bankruptcy filing said he had a gross income of $193,713 in 2023 at the time of the filing in October. When he played at Jackson State in 2022, it said he had gross income of $216,950.

“Shilo is the honest but unfortunate debtor looking to get his fresh start in life, free from the oppressive burden of his debts, including the default judgment to the Plaintiff,” Shilo Sanders’ attorney wrote in a court filing in February.

Colorado has declined to comment, as well as Deion and Shilo Sanders.
