Cordell Broadus is working hard to make a name for himself outside of just being a celebrity’s kid. The football player tells Bleacher Report that he is striving to move away from his father’s shadow and become his own man.


“Me personally, having my dad with such a popular name, it is kind of hard separating myself with that limelight,” says the athlete. “I’m Cordell Broadus and Snoop Dogg’s son so that’s my main goal, trying to make a name for myself.”

Although he has no desire to follow in his father’s path career-wise, Cordell does cherish every word of wisdom that Snoop gives. “One thing my dad has taught me, and it stuck in my head, is never get comfortable and just keep working hard and grinding.”

So just how long has Cordell been grinding on the field? “My dad tried to get me on the field early. He had me out there playing at 6-years-old…He wanted me to really get the concept of the game at a young age.”

Broadus is currently being recruited by several colleges and is considering his options on the West Coast. Snoop Dogg and wife Shante Broadus have three kids.
