Deion Sanders made his much-anticipated debut as head coach of the Jackson State football team on Sunday. Before the matchup against the Edward Waters Tigers, he received a surprise.
Troy Aikman, Sanders’ former Dallas Cowboys teammate, surprised him on the field with a hug and conversation before kickoff. He received a COVID-19 test before heading down to the field.

Aikman and Sanders were teammates from 1995-99, and they won the 1995 Super Bowl.
Sanders’ JSU debut went pretty well, too. The Tigers won 53-0.
