Alabama DB Jared Mayden on facing brother, MSU QB Jalen: 'He's going to feel all 18 years of us living together'
Brothers will be brothers, even when they are facing each other on the football field.
That will be the case for Alabama defensive back Jared Mayden and Mississippi State quarterback Jalen Mayden, who could possibly find each other battling this Saturday. If that happens, Jared wants to remind his younger brother of who the boss is.
“Ever since he thought he was getting a little bit bigger when he got to college, he’s been saying that he’s going to run me over, if he sees me on the sidelines he’s not going to step out of bounds,” Jared said on Tuesday. “I told him, ‘You know, you can try it, but I’m still older than you, you still got little boy strength and I’m grown.’ I’m just waiting. I’m not even going to say anything to him this week. I’m not going to text him. I’m not going to call him. I might block him on my social media.”
In fact, Jared has been waiting for a chance to hit his younger sibling for a while, especially after Jalen would tell on him or stole his clothes while growing up.
“If I see him, he’s going to feel all 18 years of us living together,” the defensive back said. “I always told him if I get a chance to hit you, and I could do it without getting into trouble, I’m going to take every opportunity that I can take.”
It would be great to see the two go at it, but for the parents’ sake, let’s hope that chance doesn’t come along too often.
