Deion Sanders has recently entered into an exciting collaboration in the world of eyewear. This development comes on the heels of some remarks made by Colorado State coach Jay Norvell, who had some strong words for the University of Colorado football coach regarding his choice of headgear and sunglasses during media interviews.
In response to this, Jay Norvell quipped, “When I talk to grown-ups, I take my hat and my glasses off. That’s what my mother taught me.”
Shortly thereafter, Blenders Eyewear unveiled a new line of sunglasses called “Coach Prime,” inspired by none other than Deion Sanders himself.
Chase Fisher, the CEO and Founder of Blenders Eyewear, expressed his admiration for Coach Prime, stating, “Coach Prime is an icon with a multi-generational influence,” said Chase Fisher, CEO and Founder of Blenders Eyewear.
