Deion Sanders is a transcendent sporting legend, being the only athlete to play in both a Super Bowl and World Series. His list of accomplishments includes eight Pro Bowl selections, six appearances on the first team All-Pro, and two Super Bowl victories under his belt with the San Francisco 49ers in 1995 and Dallas Cowboys in 1996. Neon Deion's impact on the sport earned him an induction into both the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the College Football Hall of Fame.

In the years since stepping away from the gridiron, Sanders has become a prominent football coach, where he currently holds a head coaching gig for the Colorado Buffaloes at the University of Colorado Boulder. Sanders' new journey in sports has seen him rekindle a working relationship with sportswear brand, Nike, as his retro shoes are slowly making their way back on the market and the field. In fact, there are Colorado-inspired colorways of the Nike Air Diamond Turf Max 96 set to release later this year in honor of Coach Prime's efforts.

Speaking of the sneakers, Sanders is feeling extra generous as he is using his platform on Instagram to promote a giveaway of his signature sneakers. But it's not just any giveaway, as Coach Prime is looking for standup men according to their "woman, mama, or kids" to reach out on social media, and Sanders will be more than happy to send over a free pair of his trademark kicks.

Legendary sports figure and Colorado Buffaloes coach, Deion Sanders, is rewarding model fathers with the chance to win a free pair of sneakers.

Seeing as Sanders embodies a lot of the same spirit, it should come as no surprise he wants to pay the same gratitude forward to other like-minded fathers and men out there. One lucky dad out there will be set with a free pair of Prime's, but the general release of the "Varsity Maize" colorway is tabbed for an April 25 date, after the shoes had a surprise drop back on February 10.
