The Sanders family, as well as Jackson State University, has a lot to be proud of.

Deion won the FCS coach of the year after taking the football team to the Celebration Bowl, although the team lost, it was the first time it made it all the way to the championship. Meanwhile, his starting quarterback son, Shedeur,  was named FCS freshman of the year as he led Jackson State to its first SWAC title since 2007. His brother, Shilo, a junior this upcoming season, and a defensive back for the football team, led the Tigers in interceptions.

The Lady Tigers basketball team is currently 16-6 and enjoying a 14-game winning streak. If the Lady Tigers win their next four games, it will end the regular season with a perfect conference record.
