Deion Sanders AKA Coach Prime has been hosting mega camps the past few seasons as he was the head coach at Jackson State University. Now he’s teaming up with McDowell, who was a star defensive back in the 1990s with the Houston Oilers. He spent years as an assistant before being named head coach following the 2021 season.

Sanders, of course, spent two and a half seasons as head coach at Jackson State. He won back-to-back SWAC championships in the 2021 and 2022 seasons, and led the program to the Celebration Bowl in each of his full seasons. Sanders was announced as the head coach of Colorado football program on Dec. 3. 

Sanders took several members of his Jackson State coaching staff with him to Colorado, including former Howard University head coach Gary ‘Flea’ Harrell.
