Deion Colzie, a native of McDonough, Georgia, began his football career at a very young age. When his mother, Dr. Yolanda Jackson, relocated and began refereeing high school football. He grew up in a Notre Dame household as his mom has been a Notre Dame fan all her life, so naturally Notre Dame was always front and center. It was no surprise that he committed to playing for the Irish and entered as a freshman in the fall of 2021. Now a junior majoring in Political Science, Deion's vision is to have a profound impact, not just on or off the football field, but to impact the world. He has always been dedicated to empowering youth even during his high school career and that translated into his work with the youth who attend the Boys and Girls Club of St. Joseph County in South Bend, Indiana. To keep that dream of impacting the world through his engagements, Deion founded Colzie Enterprises, LLC out of a pure passion for people. As a part of Colzie Enterprises, LLC, he also created and launched his clothing line labeled Simply Diffrent™. His goals, ambitions and inspirations have come together to form a truly amazing company that all of us are proud to be a part of. When he is not on the field or volunteering in the community, Deion’s hobbies include fishing, golf, boating, reading, and playing video games. Since opening in 2022, we have become masters of our craft. We go above and beyond to ensure you’re satisfied and will work with us again.

High School

Deion Colzie was a three sport athlete participating in football, basketball, and track and field at Athens Academy located in Athens, Georgia. While he played both offense and defense, Deion played the position of wide receiver and was among the top recruits in the nation, listed as one of the ESPN 300 top athletes of 2021. He was a starter four consecutive years, getting his first start as a freshman in 2017. He was a three time Region Champion and a two time State Runner-Up for the Class A-Private State Championship. He holds the school record in high jump with a jump of 6’8” breaking his own previous records of 6’4” and 6’7″, and was also on the 4 x 100 meter relay team setting a record at the GHSA 1A Private State Meet on May 9, 2019. Although Deion received numerous accolades, his most prestigious honors were his selection to the 2021 All-American Bowl Game. As a kid, Deion dreamed of what it would be like to one day play among the nation’s top athletes and his dream was realized on November 13, 2019 when he was officially invited to play. Only 100 of the nation’s best high school athletes are chosen for this honor. Next was his selection as a 2020 AJC Super 11. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution selects the preseason Super 11 to recognize the state’s most promising high school football players. Deion was the 2nd selectee in Athens Academy’s school history. Finally, was his selection to the 2021 Polynesian Bowl held each year in Hawaii.


Deion’s natural athletic ability can certainly be linked to his lineage. He is a relative of former Ohio State defensive back and first-round draft choice Neal Colzie. Neal logged 40 interceptions between his college and professional careers with three organizations, including the Super Bowl XI winner Oakland Raiders, Miami Dolphins, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. But it doesn’t stop there, Neal’s father James “Jim” “Fireball” Colzie was a celebrated Negro League pitcher from 1942-1956 playing for teams in Indianapolis and Atlanta.

Maybe it’s safe to say that athleticism is in the Colzie DNA.
