‘Prime Time’ Sanders watches son in playoffs

User Rating: / 1

“Prime Time” Deion Sanders was among the crowd Tuesday evening at the Dixie League State Coach Pitch Tournament.

His appearance at Coleman Park by the former professional baseball and football standout in Sulphur Springs wasn't  a celebrity pretense. Sanders attended as a Prosper Eagle fan and parent.

He was more Deion “Dad” Sanders, than “Prime Time.”
