Deion Sanders is entering his third year with the Jackson State football program, and to say he has turned things around would be an understatement. During the Tigers 2021 campaign, Sanders led them to an 11-2 record, the team’s first winning season since 2013.

Not only are the Tigers succeeding on the field, but off of it as well. They have dominated the recruiting game and landed the No. 1 overall recruit in the country, Travis Hunter. Sanders and Jackson State have everything going for them.

Yet, when asked about a potential matchup with the Crimson Tide Sanders said, “We’re not ready for that, we’re not into sacrificing our kids for a check.”

Sanders elaborated and said that he still needs time to improve his offensive line and defensive line before he can truly compete. He believes that the skill positions are similar, but the biggest difference is the line play on both sides of the ball.

If Jackson State and Sanders continue on this path, there may be a day when we see the two legends lined up across the sideline.
