Pritchard played collegiate football at Colorado where he won a Championship and was later named MVP for that game. Despite only playing one full season at Wide Receiver, he ranked 2nd in school history for touchdown catches. Pritchard was able to amass over 1,178 yards from scrimmage and 15 touchdowns during his 1990 season as a member of the Big 8 Colorado Buffaloes. Pritchard's amazing college career wasn't without a little controversy, when a fifth down play allowed the Buffaloes defeat the Missouri Tigers with a late touchdown on the last play from scrimmage. This controversy cast doubt on Colorado's claim to Division I-A's 1990 national championship. Pritchard would later played nine NFL seasons from 1991 to 1999. His best season as a pro came during the 1992 season for the Falcons when he caught 77 receptions for 827 yards and 5 touchdowns.
