Deion Sanders coached high school to championship before leaving for JSU

Jackson State University head coach Deion Sanders coached his final high school football game last night at Trinity Christian High School where they won the Texas Christian Athletic League Championship.

Sanders is the Tiger’s offensive coordinator and his son, Shedeur, is the team’s starting quarterback. They defeated the HEIR Eagles Academy 59-28 to finish with a great 8-3 record.

Sanders posted a photo of members of his team on Twitter after the big win and showed how proud they are to be the champs.

Sanders also had three Vicksburg natives on the championship team who contributed to winning the big game. Shardez Taylor, Marvin Martin Jr, and Quentin Pollard all had great performances this season for the Tigers.

Saturday’s game marked Sanders’ final game at Trinity. His focus is now on his new Jackson State football family. He was named head coach for JSU two months ago and has already begun bringing in major recruits for Jackson State, including Shedeur who will be joining him next year.
