Jackson State Coach Deion Sanders Offers Help to Alcorn State
Posted By: Kennedy Williams on September 24, 2021 |
Jackson State University and Alcorn State University may be in-state sports rivals, there is no bad blood between the coaches.
JSU coach Deion Sanders recently offered to help make sure Alcorn has athletic trainers in order to successfully move forward with their season.
At the moment, Alcorn has no full-time staffed trainers and the football team has had to miss practices as a result.
During a SWAC call earlier this week, Sanders said, “I could get them (some trainers),” Sanders said. “I’m not trying to (belittle them), but that’s phone calls, man. I mean, I wish we have the relationship that we could call each other, because, how many hospitals we have here in the city? I promise, I would’ve done it myself, sent you several trainers back because those kids deserve to get down, they deserve to play. We can’t practice? Because the trainers? Like, please.”
We love to see the unity among HBCU coaches and we hope that Alcorn gets all of the help they need to thrive on the field.
