Deion Sanders Attracts Players Who ‘Want To Be Great’

Football head coach, Deion “Coach Prime” Sanders expressed in a recent interview about not attracting players who are chasing the money in NIL (Name, image, and likeness) deals. He says he attracts the type of athlete who “focus on being great” and in the end, the money will come to them.

According to Bleacher Report, Sanders appeared on a recent episode of Front Office Sports Today and during his discussion, the NFL Hall of Famer speaks about the appeal for student-athletes trying to obtain riches while playing their collegiate career. While he says he can’t blame them for chasing the riches and “playing for a bag,” he states that the type of player he attracts to his team wants to commit to excellence on his team.

“I don’t attract that type of player. I attract the type of player that wants to be great, that understands he has a window of opportunity and he has to have a commitment to excellence.

“There are players who are playing for a bag, which growing up in the environment, you can’t blame them, you can’t fault them. If you’re going to give up a bag, you’re gonna have players playing for a bag, so I do understand it. I may not condone that’s your focus because I’ve always thought if you just focus on being great, the bag is gonna find you.”

The University of Colorado Boulder is gearing up for the upcoming season. After expressing interest in becoming a part of Sanders’ staff, fellow NFL Hall of Famer, Warren Sapp has officially been hired by the school as a graduate assistant.  According to BuffZone, the defensive specialist was introduced to the team on March 31 and is enrolled in graduate classes at the CU Boulder Graduate School.
