Deion Sanders was such a transcendent talent that he has been inducted into both the College Football Hall of Fame and the NFL Hall of Fame.

Sanders, who played in the NFL for 14 seasons, was inducted into Canton’s NFL Hall of Fame in 2011, which was the first year he was eligible for inclusion. As a player, he earned first-team All-Pro status as a defensive back while playing with the Falcons, 49ers, and Cowboys.

In 1994, during his only season in San Francisco, he was named the NFL’s Defensive Player of the Year.

Just a few months prior to his NFL selection, Sanders was also inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. He started 37 games across four seasons in his college career at Florida State, earning consensus All-America status in both his junior and senior years.
