Shedeur Sanders has his season debut. Jackson State’s sophomore quarterback goes on fire against FAMU, going 29-for-33 323 yards Jackson State won 59-3 on Sunday with five touchdowns. Arguably, Sanders — son of the head coach of Jackson State University, NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders — is the entire thread on Twitter: Jordan Reed @Jordan_Reid
saw half the efficiency from Jackson Street’s Shedeur Sanders vs. FAMU’s QB:
• 18 of 20 • 170 yards passing • 3 touchdowns • 17 streaks
He won’t be draft-eligible until 2024, but hasn’t been drafted by an HBCU QB since Tarvaris Jackson in 2006 (Second Round – Lowest)

He has now received offers from the two most dominant programs in the university (Alabama/Georgia). I don’t care if it’s DIII, he has to watch, impressive.

Shedeur Sanders has always dominated 😤
He started the Orange Blossom Classic 16/16 with 157 yards and 3 TDs pic.twitter.com/XJg3yIqtA5 Sunday’s performance was no surprise. As a freshman, Sanders threw for 3,231 yards, 30 touchdowns and 8 interceptions, completing 65.9 percent of his passes. He also rushed three-pointers to lead Jackson State to an 11-2 record and a Southwest Athletic Conference title. This earned them a mooring in the Celebration Bowl, where they lost 31-10 to South Carolina State University. It remains to be seen how far Jackson State can go this season. But with a star quarterback leading the way, the Tigers have gotten off to a solid start.
