Impact on Literature

Deion Sanders is a very vibrant confident and erratic person and that attitude he has runs some people the wrong way. But he has had a huge effect in culture that has stuck around even today because he brought a whole new style to being a professional athlete.

Effect on United States

Deion Sanders effected the sports world of the United Sates greatly because no player before him that had the cockiness he had could actually back it up. Now many football players study him to see how he played the game but it doesn't work for anything. One legacy he passed on was his famous touchdown dance known as the "Deion Shuffle" and it is used on a weekly basis in the NFL today.

Poem

Neon Deion is best of the best

He may not be big

But he's faster than the rest

He stole bases on one field

And scored touchdowns on another

I wonder how he got so great

We should ask his mother

He changed the game of football forever

He's in the hall of fame

There's no one better.
