Deion Sanders Thanks God After Colorado Buffaloes’ Stunning Win

By Movieguide® Contributor 

Colorado Buffaloes head football coach Deion Sanders stunned the college football world when his team beat former National Championship Runner-Up TCU 45-42. 

“First and foremost, Lord, I thank you for giving me strength and energy,” Sanders said in an interview following the game. 

“This is a blessing. Everybody—Buff Nation—who supported us and all the hood that had my back. I thank y’all. God, this is good,” he added. 

After he thanked God, Sanders addressed reporters who had doubted his methods. 

The Christian Post reported, “Sanders, a Christian who often sounded like a pastor or a motivational speaker during his post-match press conferences, pointed out how many sports journalists questioned what he was doing when he brought in 86 new players to remodel the team after he was hired as Colorado’s head coach.”

“You were supposed to be on the other side interviewing them [TCU]. Now what?” Coach Prime asked a reporter. “We had some guys that singled themselves out with their play — a lot of guys you doubted, one of them from an HBCU. I think he had 510 yards passing in a Power 5 football game and he happens to be my son.”

However, Sanders added that he expected questions and doubts from the beginning. 

“We’re going to continuously be questioned because we do things that have never been done… and that makes people uncomfortable,” Sanders stated. “When you sit up here and see a confident black man talking his talk, walking his walk, and coaching 75 percent African Americans in the locker room, that’s kinda threatening. We’re going to consistently do what we do. I’m here and I ain’t going nowhere.”

After the win, Sanders posted on his Instagram, “GOD IS GREAT & GOD IS GOOD! Thank You Lord for it all, I mean the good the bad, the ups, downs, highs & lows. Thank U Lord because I trust u much more than I trust myself.” 

Actor Jamie Foxx commented on the post and wrote, “Let’s get it COACH!!!!!! Congrats on big win!!! Your wisdom, your energy and your heart are so valuable thank you thank you thank you.” 

Rapper and actor Ludacris also commented and wrote, “Let’s GOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” 

Watch for Sanders and the Buffaloes this season as they face teams in the Pac-12 and try to turn Colorado into a championship program. 

Movieguide® previously reported on Sanders:

Deion Sanders, former NFL cornerback turned head coach for the University of Colorado, took a stand for his faith in a recent Instagram post. 

“JESUS!” Sanders captioned the photos.

“Sex won’t satisfy you. Fame won’t satisfy you. Drugs won’t satisfy you. Money won’t satisfy you. Alcohol won’t satisfy you. Success won’t satisfy you. Life is empty without Jesus. He is the only one who can satisfy your heart. Amen,” the first photo declared.

The second photo stated, “Pray until you see a breakthrough. Pray until the chains fall off. Pray until you hear God’s voice.”
