On February 22, University of Colorado Boulder head football coach Deion Sanders, Sr., affectionately known as "Coach Prime,” visited Colorado Law to speak with students in a Q&A style lunch event organized by the Student Bar Association.

Sanders has won two Super Bowl titles and made a World Series appearance, making him the only athlete to play in both a Super Bowl and a World Series. Widely regarded as the greatest cornerback in NFL history, Coach Prime fielded student questions spanning a wide range of subjects. He discussed how he made Black history on multiple occasions—encouraging students be confident and consistent in pursuing their goals and making their own history.
