Deion Sanders says ‘Saturday Night Live’ spoof ‘was good’ but reveals his favorite impressionist

Long-running comedy sketch show “Saturday Night Live” recently returned for its 49th season. During last week’s season premiere, SNL cast member Kenan Thompson had some fun at the expense of Colorado Buffaloes coach Deion Sanders.

Thompson donned a Buffaloes sweatshirt and a hat. At the end of the skit, the actor put on a pair of sunglasses that appeared to be similar to Sanders’ signature golden shades that he typically wears on the sidelines.

Sanders, who seemed to be more than willing to take a joke, said he enjoyed watching Thompson parody him. But the legendary NFL player admitted that former football player and current YouTube star and comedian Lou Young does one of the best Coach Prime impressions.

“But I’m a fan of Kenan, let’s get that straight,” Sanders said Tuesday during a news conference in reference to the “SNL” sketch. “It was good.”

“My expectations are lofty,” Sanders said. “I know where I feel like we should be record-wise, and I know what we can accomplish. I just want to put it all together.”
