Pro Football Hall of Famer Deion Sanders recently announced the launch of his new podcast with Barstool Sports, 21st and Prime, which will debut in Fall 2020.
An eight-time Pro Bowler, and two-time Super Bowl champion, Sanders played 14 NFL seasons for the Atlanta Falcons, San Francisco 49ers, Dallas Cowboys, Washington Redskins and Baltimore Ravens. A two-time All-American at Florida State, Sanders was the first-round draft choice of the Atlanta Falcons in 1989. He is the only person in professional sports history to play in the World Series and the Super Bowl. In 2020, for the NFL 100th Season, Sanders was named to the NFL All-Time Team.
In 2011, Sanders was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He was also one of 14 players and two coaches to be named in the National Football Foundation’s 2011 College Football Hall of Fame Football Bowl Subdivision Class. Sanders, who holds the NFL record for career return touchdowns (19 by kickoff, punt, interception, and fumble), began his broadcasting career with CBS, co-hosting the NFL Today pregame show from 2001-2003. He next spent 14 years as an analyst for the NFL Network, headlining popular shows like GameDay Prime and Thursday Night Football.
Since retiring from professional sports, Sanders has produced and/or appeared in a variety of television shows, including TINY HOUSE NATION, GRANDFATHERED, MOESHA, RUNNING WILD WITH BEAR GRYLLS, LIP SYNC BATTLE, THE LEAGUE, 30 FOR 30: DEION’S DOUBLE PLAY, and DEION’S FAMILY PLAYBOOK. As a brand ambassador, Sanders has worked alongside Pepsi, Frito-Lay, DIRECTV, Under Armour, and McDonald’s.
A philanthropic at heart, Sanders, alongside Stand Together, launched Prime 5, a $21 million fundraising initiative that will support for-purpose organizations that can empower Dallas residents to transform their lives and find a path out of poverty.
