Deion Sanders expects his college football players to behave like student athletes, requires them to dress appropriately, and “sits at the front of the classroom.”

Former NFL sensation and current college football head coach Deion Sanders has always been prime time ready. Now he expects his players to be prime time ready too.

Earlier this week, Sanders, 55, the head coach for the Jackson State University Tigers football team, stood in front of his players and gave them specific instructions on how to dress and prepare for class. Sanders told them that they:

  • Wear shoes that cover their feet
  • Wear shirts that cover their armpits
  • Sit in front of the class
  • Act like the “perfect gentleman”

Players may not wear “slider” flip-flops, women’s racquet tank tops, or any shirt that exposes their armpits; neglect their personal hygiene; or behave in any manner improper for a member of the JSU football team.

“Now make sure you shower before you go to class.” sanders she warned. “I don’t want any report that you were in our clothes in a cop stuff and representing us. ‘Kids in the back of the class making noise, he’s freestyle for the whole class while I was trying to teach it’ wearing a Jackson State football jersey. That will not happen.”

Proper behavior as a student-athlete is necessary, Sanders stressed, because “if you need help from that professor,” Sanders told his players, “they will remember your character.”

Sanders delivered the speech while standing in front of a presentation slide that discusses the importance of consistency. Sanders also verbally reinforced the importance of consistency during his speech.

Last year, under Sanders’ leadership, the Tigers showed consistency on the field. They finished the Southwestern Athletic Conference 11-1 and a perfect 8-0. In the 2020 COVID season, Sanders’ first year as head coach, the team took a 4-3 lead.

Since arriving at JSU, Sanders has also been making waves in the world of college football recruitment. He famously convinced a Georgia commit to move back to JSU 2020and then, in December, he officially picked the nation’s highest-ranking college football prospect, Travis Hunterwho previously signed for Florida State, where Sanders played college ball in the mid-1980s.

All twelve members of SWAC are either public or private historically black universities. Jackson State is scheduled to start the 2022 season on September 4 against Florida A&M.
