Deion Sanders Responds–Or Doesn’t–to Pregame Jabs from Alabama A&M Coach

Alabama A&M coach Connell Maynor isn’t shying away from some pregame trash talk with Deion Sanders.

FootballScoop’s John Brice shared some entertaining quotes from Monday’s SWAC coaches teleconference.

Brice shares that Maynor, without being prompted, had some fun with Sanders’ recent tweet about needing a mobile medical scooter after having surgery on his foot.

“Hey, Coach Sanders, I hurt my ankle getting off the bus the other day,” Maynor said at the end of his time on the call. “You got an extra scooter for me? If you got an extra scooter, send me one down here.”

Sanders didn’t address the scooter request.

“It’s a little rivalry, it’s a little blood in between,” Sanders said. “You know, the coach says something about me, I don’t shoot back. Because I don’t do that because I’m really good at that. I’m on this high road right now. I take the high road, right? I’m a different dude. So I don’t do that. But you know, everybody is waiting for me to do that at the conclusion of this matter.
