Deion Sanders might be the toughest person college football might know. Not only because he pushed his team to fight till the very last game despite having a tough season, but also as an individual. As the Buffs plot their revenge plan for the upcoming season, Sanders is busy fighting his own battles, ones that he does not even bring up when it comes to the team.

On December 7, Amazon Prime premiered the second season of Deion Sanders’ documentary ‘Coach Prime, episode 2 highlighted Coach Prime’s extensive battle with his blood clots. As it is passed down from his family, it is not something he can avoid. For his most recent injury, as one of the nurses in the ‘Coach Prime‘ documentary revealed, Coach Prime got treated for clots near his hip. But as it goes, Coach Prime leaves his prime effect everywhere he goes, even when he’s in his best condition. Sanders’ valor, when fighting the adversities, simply left the Colorado crew members, especially the assistant athletic trainer, in awe. ” To be honest, I haven’t seen much of a weak prime, remain strong in front of all of us,” said she.

“I mean, he has his days where he’s in more pain or whatnot, but it never changes like who he is. He never lets this foot this injury, these complications that he’s overcome affect the way he is as a coach or even as a person,”  praised the assistant athletic trainer.
