CANTON, Ohio (AP) – Dynamic Deion Sanders has become the seventh and final member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Class of 2011.
The spectacular playmaker who won consecutive Super Bowls as a cornerback and kick returner with different teams, finished off the inductions Saturday night sporting gold shoes to go with his gold jacket.
Dubbed “Prime Time” and “Neon Deion,” Sanders was the 1994 defensive player of the year with San Francisco, then switched to the Cowboys and helped Dallas win the 1995 title. He made the 1990s all-decade team as a cornerback and a punt returner — all the while dabbling in major league baseball for eight years, once making the World Series.
Sanders also played some wide receiver, making him a true NFL triple threat.
