Tribe HBCU College Tour

In June 2021, the Tribe organized an HBCU College Tour for 20 of our players at no cost to their families.The purpose of the tour was to give players a front row seat to experience college campuses, highlighting the importance of higher learning, meeting with collegiate coaches and displaying their talents in hopes of potentially being recruited upon graduation.


While the tour focused on higher education, the highlight is when the team ran into Deion Sanders at Jackson State University, where he is the football team’s head coach. The Pro Football Hall of Famer graciously offered to do a Q&A session with the organization to encourage the young men not to lose sight of their goals.

Check out pictures and a highlight video from the tour below. We look forward to continuing this tradition ad exposing more up and coming athletes to the college life and opportunities that come with seeking higher learning.
