NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders has decided to apply his coaching skills to the University of Colorado Boulder football team for this upcoming season. But, another change took place before Sanders went to Colorado. A Black fraternity has made its way back to the campus as well.

“I didn’t look into it because I assumed every college had, you know, fraternities. So, Black fraternities and sororities,” Jynes said. “When I got on campus, I was looking for it, and they was like, they didn’t have it.”

“He was like, ‘Oh, I wanted to be an Omega, but he didn’t know at the time that Omegas were even around,” Jasper said. “And I had the opportunity to already kind of gauge him, and I was like, I can see him fitting in. How he could help.”

“I think it’s important to just have that representation so that they can say, ‘Hey, I have the opportunity. I see it’s there, and if I want to strive to be in that, then I have the opportunity to do that,’” Jasper said.

The football coach hopes to see more Omega men living on campus and sporting the purple and gold colors.
