Jackson State Graces the Sports Illustrated Cover, Revisiting Mikey Williams Top 10 List

podcast June 10, 2022


Background
share close

Jackson State football is on full display with Deion Sanders, Shadeur Sanders and Travis Hunter gracing the cover of Sports Illustrated and former Alabama A&M QB Jarren Williams is retiring from football, citing his mental health. We revisit Mikey Williams top 10 list from 2 years ago and see where North Carolina Central, Hampton, Alabama State, Texas Southern, and Tennessee State stand today.

Jackson State football is on full display with Deion Sanders, Shadeur Sanders and Travis Hunter gracing the cover of Sports Illustrated. This is. the first HBCU cover since Steve McNair in 1994. I love how the shot that eventually was set up as it made sure the focus was on the players and not just Deion Sanders. This hammers home it isn’t Deion Sanders and Jackson State. Deion Sanders is a part of Jackson State.

Former Alabama A&M QB Jarren Williams is retiring from football, citing his mental health. It was a tough decision to stop playing a sport that he’s played since he was 4. Though it was tough, I’m glad he protected himself first. His last concussion put him into another depression. 

Mikey Williams parents reaffirmed his desire to go to college instead of the G League or overseas. When he revealed his top 10 list after his freshman year, there was 5 HBCUs on the list. We take a look at where NC Central, Tennessee State, Texas Southern, Alabama State & Hampton sit 2 years later.
