Deion Sanders took a memorable acting turn in a commercial during Super Bowl VLVII, posing as Leon Sandcastle so he could compete in the NFL combine.

However, Sanders wasn't the only person pretending to be Sandcastle on screen.

Ball State cornerback Andre Dawson (not this Andre Dawson) was Sanders' stunt double; sprinting in scenes from the combine.

Dawson was cast in the role thanks to a bizarre text from Ball State backup QB Kelly Page. Page asked Dawson for his height and weight via text. Unbeknownst to Dawson, Page was in the middle of standing in for Colts rookie sensation Andrew Luck.

A few texts and emails later, and Dawson was cast as Deion Sanders playing Leon Sandcastle.

"Deion was there the whole time," Dawson told Sporting News. "It was funny we were together most of the time talking. I don't think he knew I was an athlete though; I think he thought I was an actor."

"We were talking the whole time about his NFL experiences."

After he wrapped, Dawson to keep his involvement secret according to Sporting News. Once the ad ran Sunday, Dawson posted the photo featured above on

He can't tackle. The way you guys cry about DRob not wrapping up, how can you even want this Sandcastle kid. He's all about the fortune and fame. He would probably leave us for a rival if they offered him enough $$$.

I hear he's a two sport guy too. He really needs to make up his mind who he wants to be. Can you imagine how crazy we'd have to be to have a guy only play about half a season? You guys are dreaming...biggrin.png
