HBCU Gameday 1-on-1 with Hampton’s Connell Maynor

Connell Maynor arrived at Hampton last year with a tough task: rebuilding the once-dominant program into a MEAC Champion. Fresh off three-straight playoff appearances at Winston-Salem State, it appeared that if anyone could do it, it would be Maynor.

The Pirates finished 3-8 last season, the worst record of Maynor’s coaching career. But the team did put together a 35-21 win over conference power Bethune-Cookman, giving optimisim for the future. That optimism has continued in the offseason as Maynor and his staff have successfully pulled several transfers from FBS teams, most notably former UVa. quarterback David Watford.

We caught up with Maynor at Media Day to talk about Watford, his offense and the first championship he won at Armstrong Stadium.
