JSU football signs two East Mississippi Lions

JACKSON (JSUTigers.com) – The Jackson State football program continues to build its base under newly minted head coach Tony Hughes. Just a day after finalizing the coaching staff, the Tigers have signed a pair of East Mississippi Community College standouts in Dario Robinson (WR, 5-10, 185) and Deshawn Tillman (DL, 6-4, 240).
The duo, over a two year period, helped lead head coach Buddy Stephens’ East Mississippi CC Lions to a 20-1 record, including the 2014 NJCAA national championship.

Last season Robinson hauled in 30 passes for 380 yards and six touchdowns. Towards the end of the season, he played defensive back as well, finishing with nine tackles. Tillman recorded 38 total tackles with seven tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks. The EMCC Lions finished 2015 with an 8-1 overall record and a 6-0 MACJC North Division record, as well as a MACJC North Division Championship. Both will enroll at JSU in January.
