“I am honored and elated to share this inside look at how our program made history as JSU’s first undefeated regular season football team,” Sanders said in a news release. “This group of young men are smart, tough, fast and disciplined with character, and together, we were able to dominate all season long.

Sanders is one of the greatest athletes of all-time and has been successful at just about everything he’s done. He now faces the huge task of turning around the 1-11 CU Buffs.

“We’re excited to welcome Coach Prime to the Prime Video family,” said Marie Donoghue, VP, global sports video of Amazon in a news release “Deion Sanders is such an inspiring leader, both on and off the field, and we look forward to taking fans inside Coach Prime’s world as the exciting season unfolds at Jackson State University.”
