Viral video shows Deion Sanders’ tough leadership style with Jackson State

Deion Sanders on the sidelines

If there were any doubts about Deion Sanders’ ability to lead his program, those can probably be put to rest.

Video went viral this week of Sanders’ tough style of leadership at Jackson State. The video, posted by Sanders’ son Deion Sanders Jr., showed Sanders yelling at his players in the locker room to get off their phones. Sanders said that anybody caught on their phone would not be playing that week.

“He looked dead at me then start yelling about phones,” Sanders Jr’s caption read. “I got so scared I put MY phone down. This is before we played in Memphis (second game of the season).”

In his second season as head coach, Sanders led Jackson State to an 11-2 record and a division title. Sanders Jr., a 28-year-old who played college football at SMU, is not affiliated with the team and was likely just visiting. However, Sanders’ younger son Shedeur is the starting quarterback for Jackson State.

Sanders is definitely doing something right with the Tigers, especially since he pulled off a major recruiting coup just a few weeks ago. While Sanders’ methods can be a bit unconventional at times, he is definitely not afraid to give his players the discipline that they need to win.

Deion Sanders tells $1 million trust fund son to ‘stop the hood stuff’


Former NFL star and current analyst Deion Sanders is not afraid to tell the Twitter world how rich he is, which he proved on Thursday morning when he had an entertaining exchange with his son.

Deion Sanders Jr., who is a sophomore wide receiver at SMU, apparently likes to eat a certain type of donut that his father does not find suitable for the wealthy. So when Deion Jr. tweeted that he still buys the “hood doughnuts,” his old man was quick to remind him where he came from.

I’d be shocked if Sanders Jr. doesn’t hear about that one in the locker room.

As we know, the elder Sanders has never been shy about expressing himself on Twitter. Apparently even his family’s personal financial affairs are not considered private.
