In the long and storied history of Jackson State University athletics, 86 former Tigers have had the distinguished honor of being selected in the National Football League Draft. Now, a new group of former JSU athletes are on a mission to join this elite fraternity.
Watch their story in the new, 30-minute documentary, Path to Pro Day, at the JSUTV Watch Party at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, April 25, at The U Sports Bar and Grill, 1100 John R. Lynch St. in Jackson. WJSU will broadcast the documentary on 88.5 FM tonight at 5:30 p.m. following the News Now Update at 5 p.m.
The highly anticipated documentary profiles four JSU athletes – wide receiver Rico Richardson, defensive end Joseph LeBeau, defensive tackle Johnathan Billups and left tackle Zion Pyatt – as they compete for gridiron glory in front of NFL scouts during the annual Pro Day workout. The documentary also features JSU head football coach Rick Comegy and his entire coaching staff.
Following the film, we invite you to watch the 2013 NFL draft with us!
