Borden, Jr. who is from Waxahachie, Texas, went off to Junior College to play at Kilgore, Texas where he caught 11 passes for 181 yards as a sophomore. He had a 16.5 year average and four touchdowns there too.

“He’s always kind of pushed me to do what I want to do, make a name for myself outside of what he’s done,” said Borden, Jr. “So that’s been the goal my entire life, not really to follow in his footsteps necessarily, but to make my own name.”
