Deion Sanders Biography - Born In Fort Myers, Florida, Drafted By Atlanta Falcons, Chronology, Leads Nfl In Interceptions - CONTACT INFORMATION, SELECTED WRITINGS BY SANDERS:

sports football baseball league

1967-

American football and baseball player

The only man in professional sports history to play in both the Super Bowl and World Series, Deion Sanders has been a top-ranked athlete since his high school years. Sanders credits sports with keeping him out of trouble as a teenager. Nicknamed "Prime Time" during high school, Sanders has probably received more prime-time sports coverage than any other athlete in recent years because of his involvement in both professional football and major league baseball. He played 12 seasons in the National Football League (NFL), including stints with the Atlanta Falcons, San Francisco Giants, Dallas Cowboys, and Washington Redskins. In major league baseball, Sanders played for the New York Yankees in 1989 and 1990; the Atlanta Braves from 1991 through the first part of 1994; the Cincinnati Reds in the second part of 1994, the first part of 1995, and all of 1997 and 2001; and for the San Francisco Giants in the latter part of the 1995 season. After leaving football and baseball in 2001, Sanders joined CBS Sports as a feature reporter/contributor for the NFL Today television show, and the next year became a studio analyst.

I started watching your show Deion family playbook and thought how could I ever get Deion to help me with my grandson he plays quarterback for his school in Riesel Texas a small town right outside of Waco he remind me a lot like your son Shilo and like you I just wanted him to be the best he can be. He really try real hard both with his sports and his grades in school. He make all A's. My problem is I'm not rich and I don't have the knowledge how to get people to watch his games we have record to see what he might need to work on. He has been working with Baylor quarterback Odell James, and his coach said he is one of the best player he has ever coach. He also remind me of you Deion he plays basketball, and select baseball. I will finish by saying how wonderful it is that you care so much for kids like your show shows and that you wanted them to get to college. I'm just a loving grandpa that has big dreams for my grandkids just like you but I don't have the connection to make it happen. Hope you will find love in your heart to help me make this happen. I know you are very busy but I sure could use your help

You speak of your mother Ms. Connie, is your father's name James Sanders? I may never get an answer to this question, but I have been trying to find out for a very long time.

Deion,

Been meaning to send this for some time now. I lived in Dallas while you were playing there. I saw you in a toy store buying a toy for your son. I thought about saying hi but you were with your son so I did not interfere with your family time. It was just a lovely thing to see you an him together and to see a side of you most don't see. Hope the son is doing well an that you still get time to spend with him.

You are the last shut down corner ever to play in the NFL. I'm a huge fan and I even went to see you when you did you concert in Bakersfield, CA. I was about 12yrs at the time but it was one of the best moments in my life. You even gave me your towel after your show when i guessed what your favorite number was, it was #21
