Default Re: Deacon Jones dead at 74

He was a great interview and media personality. Dude never lost his attitude, even in old age.

I think my favorite Deacon moment was on the Jim Rome show. Deacon was talking about a youth football organization that he worked with over the years. He said he was teaching line techniques, and this 15 year old on the other side was getting cocky and trying to talk down to the "old man". Deacon had a mouth and talked back to him. The youngster threatened to put Deacon on his butt. When the play started, Deacon jumped out and slammed the kid in the chest, probably knocking him back about 10 feet and on his butt. Rome just busted out laughing and thought Deacon was just telling a tall tale. But Deacon was serious. Nobody, not even some 15 year old, could call him out without repercussion.

RIP Deacon Jones.
