Travis Hunter begs Deion Sanders to play against USC: ‘I’m not taking no for an answer’

Gray Frame Corner

Travis Hunter, a talented quarterback for the Colorado Buffaloes, is eager to get back on the field

as his team prepares to play the USC Trojans this weekend after dominating the Oregon Ducks, 42-6, on Saturday. 

Hunter made a daring request, but head coach Deion Sanders won't permit it. 

On what was deemed a "dirty hit" by Colorado State safety Henry Blackburn during the Buffaloes' double-overtime victory two weeks ago, Hunter sustained a lacerated liver.

a versatile player who has excelled at both cornerback and receiver.

Hunter's absence stood out against a talented Ducks club that "Coach Prime" described as giving the Buffaloes a "old-fashioned" beating. 

Hunter texted his coach to ask permission to play this Saturday against a USC team that is even more competitive.

During a meeting, Sanders relayed the conversation to his colleagues. 

This week, I have to play. In order for me to return to the field, we must do everything within our power. I won't accept no as an answer," Sanders replied back to him, according to Hunter.
