The next stop for Deion Sanders is the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.
He spent most of the last week in the city where he started his career, making the media rounds, hosting a youth football tournament and celebrating with a Red & Black fundraising party.
I went out to the youth tournament on Friday to watch a few of the games. Here’s a look at Sander’s T.R.U.T.H. teams. CLICK HERE!
Also, Keion Carpenter’s Team Shutdown from Baltimore was pretty impressive. Dunta Robinson’s Athens Oilers also looked pretty good.
Locally, coach Andre Patterson and the Gresham Park Rattlers showed they’ll be a tough team in their league this season. The Gwinnett Chargers also improved from the games and should be tough this season.
The Tucker Tigers, with coach Jonathan Vaughters helping out, are always a handful. (The proud father reported that his son James is already out at Stanford getting ready for his freshman season.)
I didn’t walk the red carpet at the Red & Black Gala, but it appears Sanders and the attendees had a good time.
