Deion Sanders” – Two-time Super Bowl champion and Pro Football Hall of Famer Deion Sanders tackles an undercover mission to reward youth football coaches and give back to his community, on UNDERCOVER BOSS: CELEBRITY EDITION, Friday, June 1 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. While in Dallas posing as an older gentleman who wants to start coaching, Sanders finds two amazing youth football coaches who are giving their all to programs for children in low income communities. Also, he lets his guard down when tasked with leading a choir of homeless people, including a remarkable young man who is taking college classes, despite his circumstances.

Pro Football Hall of Famer, eight-time Pro Bowler and two-time Super Bowl champion Deion Sanders is an analyst on the NFL Network television programs “Thursday Night Football,” “21st and Prime” and the highly rated Sunday program “NFL GameDay.” In addition to providing pregame, halftime and postgame analysis, Sanders interviews top playmakers.

Over the course of 14 NFL seasons, Sanders played for the Atlanta Falcons (1989-1993), the San Francisco 49ers (1994), the Dallas Cowboys (1995-1999), the Washington Redskins (2000) and the Baltimore Ravens (2004-2005). A two-time All-American at Florida State, Sanders was the first-round draft choice of the Atlanta Falcons in 1989.

Sanders is the only person in professional sports history to play in the World Series (for the Atlanta Braves) and the Super Bowl (for the San Francisco 49ers and the Dallas Cowboys).

During Sanders’ career in Major League Baseball, he played for the New York Yankees (1989-1990), the Atlanta Braves (1991-1994), the Cincinnati Reds (1994-1995, 1997 and 2001) and the San Francisco Giants (1995).

In 2011 Sanders was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He was also one of 14 players and two coaches to be named in the National Football Foundation’s 2011 College Football Hall of Fame Football Bowl Subdivision Class.

Sanders, who holds the NFL record for career return touchdowns (19 by kickoff, punt, interception and fumble), began his broadcasting career with CBS, co-hosting the NFL pregame show THE NFL TODAY from 2001-2003.

Since retiring from professional sports, Sanders has produced and headlined the reality series “Deion’s Family Playbook,” appeared in the reality series “Lip Sync Battle” and “Running Wild with Bear Grylls,” and guest-starred as himself in the television comedy series “Grandfathered,” “Moesha” and “The League.” As a brand ambassador, Sanders has worked alongside Pepsi, DirecTV, Under Armour and McDonald’s.

A philanthropist at heart, Sanders, alongside Stand Together, launched Prime 5, a $21 million fundraising initiative that will support for-purpose organizations that can empower Dallas residents to transform their lives and find a path out of poverty.
