Colorado football coach Deion Sanders had heard enough.
Sanders heard about the death threats to Colorado State’s Henry Blackburn and his family. The DB’s late hit on Saturday injured Buffaloes’ two-way star Travis Hunter.
Sanders responded on Tuesday with a rebuke of those who were behind the threats.
Very classy move by Deion Sanders, who made sure to say this during his press conference today:
“Henry Blackburn is a good player who played a phenomenal game… This is a still young man trying to make it in life … He does not deserve a death threat over a game.”
“I forgive… pic.twitter.com/bx64k0ypgY

Hunter had defended Blackburn in a video he released on Monday. The two-way star suffered a lacerated liver and is expected to miss three weeks.
