Deion Sanders' son shares epic story about NFL legend father attending his youth basketball game

Pro Football Hall of Fame defensive back Deion Sanders was known for his hard-nosed play on the field and his flashy style off the field -- and one story reinforced how much of an attention-grabber he was.

Sanders’ son, Deion Jr., tweeted a brief story about his father Wednesday. He said he was about to play a basketball game in seventh grade and his father wanted to be there.

Sanders Jr. said his dad was at his house about an hour away from where the game was being played and right before the game, the former cornerback landed his helicopter on the field so he could be at the game to watch his son.

“People went crazy,” Sanders Jr. wrote.
