“I Can Remember My Stepfather…”: Deion Sanders Recalls Incidents From Childhood That Scarred Him For Life

“Yo Lady Would Love That”: Deion Sanders Claps Back At Hater For Disregarding His Blenders Eyewear

Deion Sanders is one of the toughest and most dominant figures in the sports world. His dual sport professional career is a perfect summary of his grind, but it appears even the toughest of personalities have scars in their lives that they cannot heal so easily.

In one of his latest vlog posts on YouTube, via Well Off Media, Coach Prime revealed one particular incident involving his stepfather Willie Knight, and mother Connie, that haunts him even to this day.

“I can remember my stepfather,” Prime narrated. “I think I had to be six or seven, or maybe eight, something like that. But we went to one of the amusement parks, and on the way back we were going down one of the back roads, and they saw a turtle crossing the road. And I’m in the back seat you know, just my mom and stepdad and me in the back seat, and they slowed down and stopped the car and I was just sitting up there saying to myself, ‘I know it ain’t about to go down what I think is about to go down.’ And it went down.”

Deion added: “He got out, grabbed that Turtle, put that turtle in the trunk, and they had turtle soup. I’m like ‘Dog! Come on man.’ I can’t eat nothing that I’ve seen. That’s why I’m scarred for certain things like turtles as well as possums, coons like raccoons. Like I used to see a whole-skinned raccoon in the sink. Do you understand what that would do to a kid seeing a raccoon that was skinned?”

Being the animal lover that Deion is, one can only wonder what he might have felt after seeing skinned animals in his kitchen. Coach Prime certainly craves the love of animals, which he gets through his pet dog Gunner Sanders when he is at home.

Deion Sanders Has Been Appreciative Of His Influential Stepfather

Despite the few instances when young Deion hated the choice of food of his parents, his stepfather Willie Knight has been one of the biggest influences that he has had in his life.

Prime makes sure to celebrate both his fathers, Mims Sanders (biological father), and Willie Knight (stepfather) for the love that they have given him.

While on the other hand, Prime’s relationship with his mother has been as wholesome as it can get. But it’s certain that he has developed his strength from a very young age.
