Published 06/17/2022, 6:30 PM EDT

NFL legend Deion Sanders was one of the best cornerbacks in NFL history. Sanders played college football at Florida State University. He entered the NFL with Atlanta Falcons in 1989 and went on to play for other 4-teams in his 14-years of career. He was quite charismatic on the field, but off the field, he was a pure entertainer.

Right after winning the Super Bowl title for the Cowboys in 1996, Sanders made an appearance at the Cowboy’s first training camp in style. The practice sessions organized by the Dallas Cowboys were held at the campus of St. Edwards in 1996. Unlike other players who arrived at the training facility on their simple white golf carts, Sanders had planned his entry entirely differently.

Sanders arrived at the team’s facility in his custom-made sporty golf cart. It was not any ordinary golf cart, but it was a $30,000 Mercedes golf cart that had cushy seatings, tinted windows, and a mist dispenser. The golf cart even had a stereo system, and he even played some rap music in his golf car in between the practice sessions.

That is how Sanders was, and he called himself an original. Well, his sporty golf cart truly proves he was different from everyone else present in the practice sessions.
