Prime Time’s Debut In Spring Time
One of the most prolific players in NFL history, Deion Sanders, made his College Football Head Coaching debut against Edward Waters. Coming off a 1-10 record the previous season Coach Prime and the Tigers looked to make a statement early in this spring season. For a debut Jackson State could not find a more easier opponent. The offense for the JSU Tigers got off quickly when New Orleans native WR Warren Newman scored the game’s first TD and JSU’s first TD of the Deion Sanders era.
After the Tigers got out to a 17-0 lead after the first quarter they began to pour it on even more. After Jackson State scooped an Edward Waters fumble on a kickoff return with 55 seconds remaining in the first half, the Tigers marched down the field and increased the lead to 31-0 on four plays in 44 seconds and that was the score after the first half.
On the first drive of the second half, Tigers RB Kymani Clarke scored on a 10-yard touchdown run and the score was now 37-0 after a failed JSU 2pt conversion. The second half was just all gas and no brakes just like the first half. Coach Prime and the Jackson State Tigers strutted to a 53-0 victory over Edward Waters. What a debut for Coach Prime and his team. Great effort on both sides of the football. Offense and defense came to play and just dominated. Jackson State looks to keep the momentum going when they host Mississippi Valley State at home this upcoming Saturday.
