A host of former Seminole greats were on hand this weekend. Deion Sanders, Derrick Brooks, Corey Simon, Peter Boulware, Pat Carter and others spoke to the team Friday evening for about two hours and took in the scrimmage Saturday at Gene Cox Stadium.

Sanders said Brooks, a former member of the University's Board of Trustees, was the organizing force and that future trips are in the works.

Sanders, currently an NFL analyst for CBS, said his message to the team was a simple anecdote.

"You tell a child that the oven is hot but they still touch it just to see the severity of the heat. We're just trying to stop these guys from making the same mistakes we made."
