Deion Luwynn Sanders, nicknamed “Prime Time” and “Neon Deion”, was inducted into the 2011 Pro Football Hall of Fame, Saturday night at Fawcett Stadium in Ohio, as reported by several international news sites, August 6, 2011.

Deion Sanders, a former National Football League cornerback and Major League Baseball outfielder, currently works as an NFL Network Analyst.

According to reports, Sanders is considered as one of the most versatile athletes in sporting history because he played two sports at multiple positions. Similarly, he won two Super Bowl rings and became the first man to play in an NFL game on the same day that he played in a World Series game.

Reports quoted Sanders at the end of his acceptance speech saying, “This game taught me how to be a man. This game taught me if I get knocked down, I got to get my butt back up.”

“I always had a rule in life that I would never love anything that couldn’t love me back. It taught me how to be a man, how to get up, how to live in pain. Taught me so much about people, timing, focus, dedication, submitting oneself, sacrificing. If your dream ain’t bigger than you, there’s a problem with your dream,” he added.
