At past events, we have been honored by world leaders and we have honored American Heroes. This year, we're recognizing Legendary Sports Icons who have transitioned into playing for much larger stakes - going into some of the toughest fields of play - inner cities, gangs, deep poverty and the streets - using an entirely different playbook to change the lives of those in need.
Featuring Deion Sanders
One of the most electrifying athletes to ever play sports, Pro Football Hall of Famer, Deion Sanders can currently be seen across several NFL Network television series, including Thursday Night Football, 21st and Prime and NFL Gameday, serving as an analyst for the highly-rated Sunday program.
An eight-time Pro Bowler, and two-time Super Bowl champion, Sanders played 14 NFL seasons for the Atlanta Falcons, San Francisco 49ers, Dallas Cowboys, Washington Redskins and Baltimore Ravens. He is the only person in professional sports history to play in the World Series and the Super Bowl. Sanders also holds the NFL record for career return touchdowns (19 by kickoff, punt, interception and fumble).
A philanthropist at heart, Sanders, alongside Stand Together, launched Prime 5, a $21 million fundraising initiative that will support for-purpose organizations that can empower Dallas residents to transform their lives and find a path out of poverty.
Emcee Clint Bruce
