The number two really defines a certain two-time unanimous college football All-American, the electrifying Deion Sanders. His #2 was retired by the Seminoles. The man with two nicknames “Prime Time” and “Neon Deion” was a critical force in Florida State‘s historical run under Hall of Fame Coach Bobby Bowden, and today the National Football Foundation and the Hall of Fame recognize his achievements. Sanders, or $anders as he would often spell it, later became a two-way player in the NFL (well part time on offense, as he played wide receiver for a little bit), and seems to present two personalities to the public. There’s the brash, calculated, and well marketed persona; then there’s who Deion really is. It’s a shame CBs can’t wear single digit numbers in the NFL, because retaining #2 would have been perfect for the Ft. Myers, FL native. But #21 wasn’t bad either for this football dual personality (maybe you could call him a two sport star) who became the first person to ever play in ...

Shaq Thompson returns to football after disastrous pro baseball debut

Look, we all can’t be Bo Jackson or Deion Sanders. That’s probably what Washington signee Shaq Thompson is thinking as he returns to Seattle to prepare for his upcoming freshman season following a brutal 13-game stinkfest with the Red Sox’s Rookie class affiliate. Thompson, a top-five football recruit in the nation this year, finished his summer of baseball on the Gulf Coast...
