    Deion Sanders on Orange Blossom Classic return: 'It's an opportunity to put our players on stage'

    Deion Sanders took to social media recently to express his disappointment that no players from Historically Black Colleges and Universities were selected in last week’s NFL Draft. The Pro Football Hall of Famer, who likes being referred to as “Coach Prime” these days as the head coach at Jackson State University, hopes opportunities will come from restoring a historic HBCU annual tradition like the Orange Blossom Classic game.
