Former National Football League star Deion Sanders is not afraid of liberal Hollywood’s opinion on his partnership with the conservative Koch brothers.
The NFL Hall of Fame member partnered with the Republican donors anti-poverty group, Stand Together, in its effort to help poor families in the Dallas area.
Sanders, who played for the Dallas Cowboys, told The Washington Examiner that he has no reservations about the pair’s politics and is “all in” with the Republican powerhouses, who he said have been treated unfairly by the media.
“When you’re someone of status and significant wealth, there’s a tremendous expectation, and it’s not easy to fulfill all those expectations,” Sanders told the Examiner.
“You talk about a family that has one desire: to make this country a better place,” he said. “To level the playing field, to inspire, encourage, motivate. And that’s what they do, and that’s who they are, and I’m thankful to be partnered with them.”
Sanders doesn’t believe there are two parties when it comes to helping the poor.
“I think I chose correctly,” he told the Examiner. “I’m happy where I am and who I’m with, because we share a lot of the same values and goals, and I’m thankful to be part of this team.”
And he is excited about joining the Koch brothers in helping to fight poverty.
“We are committed to helping people improve their lives,” Sanders, who also starred on the baseball field, said. “This is an opportunity to provoke real change in our community and provide effective assistance to those who live in constant struggle.”
“I wanted to be involved, because this is something that I do,” he added. “Football and baseball is what I played, but this is who I am.”
