Hampton coach: Pirates focused on spoiling FAMU’s homecoming

HAMPTON, Virginia -- Florida A&M’s Saturday homecoming opponent has dreams of winning the MEAC.

The team also has the record to back up those aspirations.

The Hampton Pirates are 3-3 overall and 3-1 in conference play. Right now, the Pirates are chasing North Carolina Central (5-2, 4-0 MEAC), North Carolina A&T (5-1, 3-0) and South Carolina State (2-3, 2-0) for the top spot in the conference.C

Next week, the Pirates will have a chance to knock off South Carolina State. NCAT and NCCU will play each other at the end of the season, meaning Hampton could get the help it needs – if the Pirates beat the Bulldogs first – to secure a berth in the Celebration Bowl.

None of that is on Hampton head coach Connell Maynor’s mind. The Pirates are focused on spoiling FAMU’s homecoming.
