Deion Sanders Reacts to Appearing on Sports Illustrated Cover (Video)

Appearing on the cover of Sports Illustrated is often a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for some of the best athletes to ever live. Unless you’re Deion Sanders. 

SI’s latest monthly cover features the Jackson State coach and two of his players, his son and team quarterback, Shedeur Sanders, along with freshman cornerback Travis Hunter.

In a video posted on YouTube, Sanders is sitting at his desk with a stack of Sports Illustrated magazines on his desk. He shows off all six of his covers to the two young players—including the latest cover where all three of them appear. It was the first time Shedeur and Hunter saw the cover. Both players smiled ear to ear when they saw it for the first time.
