Coach Sanders is Changing the Culture of Colorado Football

Branson Faulk
Colorado hires Deion Sanders as the new head coach. Things look good for this college football program and are looking towards a bright future.

Head Coach Deion Sanders, also known as “Coach Prime” transferred to Colorado University after Colorado’s 1-11 2022 season. They were ranked the 128th worst NCAA D1 football team out of a group of 131 total teams. This was embarrassing for the players, coaching staff and the fans of Colorado. With a $156,000,000 football facility, fans expected better. The state of Colorado had enough with the consistent losing seasons.  

Colorado University began their football team 63 years ago, in 1960, and has never made it to the college football playoffs. Coach Sanders, went to Boulder to try and change history.  

 “I’m bringing my luggage, and it’s Gucci,” Sanders said after the first team meeting. 

Sanders related “Gucci” to his multiple three to five star recruits he had lined up to play for his team this season. Coaches and players immediately entered the transfer portal after the first team meeting, nervous to put in the work to keep their spot. With the new team mentality and coach Sander’s hype, keeping a spot with him as coach would be almost impossible.

Coach Prime brought players like Heisman contender and high school five star athlete Travis Hunter from his last coaching job at SWAC Jackson State. Sanders left Jackson State with a regular season record of 12-0.  

This season Colorado is having one of their best seasons yet, beating number 14 ranked Texas Christian University in their first game of the season and having a competitive game with the number nine ranked University of Southern California Trojans. With a current record of 3-2, Sanders has already made an everlasting impact on the program. 

“Coach Prime has already done so much it’s exciting to see what else he will do for the program,” said sophomore and football fan Grayson Bruch. 

With such a large impact in only his first years of coaching at Colorado, there are endless possibilities to what he can do to the program in the coming years of him coaching.
