Deion Sanders was honorably elected to the Pro Bowl Hall of Fame last night. I don’t believe there was ever a question that he wouldn’t go on the first ballot of eligibility.
Sanders played for the Dallas Cowboys from 1995-1999. One of the best cover corners the game has ever seen as well as an explosive return man and even a wide receiver, he amazed us with his skill on all sides of the ball. While we were living high in the mid 90’s, Neon Deion helped contribute to that spectacular show we looked forward to every week.
Oh what we wouldn’t do to find a modern day Cowboy with the skills and excitement of the great ‘Prime Time’ himself! They just don’t make ‘em like that anymore.
