JACKSON, Miss. – D1baseball.com, a highly-regarded intercollegiate baseball publication, has selected Jackson State as its pick to win the SWAC East Division and capture the conference championship and be the SWAC's automatic berth in the NCAA tournament.
The Tigers finished 2019 with a 31-24 overall record and 15-9 mark in conference play.
JSU's Nikelle Galatas was also recognized as the SWAC Preseason Pitcher of the Year after finishing the 2019 campaign ranked seventh in the conference in earned run average (4.13 ERA), fifth in opposing batter average (.237), first in innings pitched (93.2), second in batters struck out (74), and fourth in total wins (6). The first team was represented well by Jackson State as Jaylyn Williams was selected as the first team all-conference third baseman, Wesley Reyes at shortstop, Equon Smith in the outfield and Chris Prentiss as the designated hitter.
Galatas and Mario Lopez were each named to the second-team with Galatas being named as a starting pitcher and Lopez as a reliever.

This is my first time in over a year or so that I have commented on this Board. I've decided to do this in support of Jackson State University. As you all are well aware about our own prostitution ring at my alma mater a couple of years ago. What Jackson State University is going through is what myself, our students and our alumni had to come to grips with after that incident. The media's narrative of the situation at Jackson State that will continue to destroy the integrity and academic excellence of one of our best HBCUs. My hope is that the Jackson State University stay ahead of the narrative and distinguish themselves from the Bynum tragedy to laying the blame solely at the feet of the IHL. The IHL was the one who hand selected Bynum and eliminated the normal candidacy process as they did at the University System of Georgia in our president. The Jackson State University alumni, students and community was not giving that opportunity to select a candidate of their choice. Again, I know the feeling. And had my university president plastered on the front page news, I would have taken the good and the bad. The good, we didn't want you in the first place and the University System of Georgia is to blame and this should be rectified. The bad, people asking you questions when you bear the name of Jackson State University across your chest and you sometimes don't have an answer. Guard yourselves Jacksonian and be ye READY!
Well said, sir.
If you all remember, thousands of JSU alumni and constituents voiced our displeasure when he was announced as the preferred candidate back in 2017. The Mississippi IHL disregarded our preferred candidate (Dr. James T. Minor) for this guy who clearly was not qualified to be our president and whose background did not align with the pedigree and profile of JSU. Now that there has been a shift in the IHL (HBCU alums are now on the board), we hope to get this next hire right.

Capler, my sentiments exactly. Integration destroyed a lot of Black establishments, high schools, sports and communities.

Sorry Drummond but spoke with a member of Celebration Bowl Board yesterday . Know what? Unlike your doom attitude toward anything other than JSU, the CB is high on this game and the venue so you need to put butts in the seats supporting our things (BAYOU;FL CLASSIC; SWAC Championship CIAA;MEAC ETC) or it could disappear. You probably will go on a rampage to end something JSU has been unable to be a part of by conference championship Be patient, it will happen. Just my two cents worth. The attendance is better than a lot of post season games
I haven't mentioned anything about JSU on this topic.
I was the one fighting for the Legacy Bowl on this board when the rest of you backwoods, FCS playoffs loving clowns were against it.

Yall care too much about what white people think.
Nothing wrong with the Celebration Bowl excepting the lack of a School from MISSISSIPPI getting in the mix. Thats all this is about.......lack of a school from Miss getting in WHAT mix? Alcorn is located in Lorman, Miss. So I’m confused about what you’re talking about. Or did you INTEND to state the lack of a “certain” school from Miss? And that would be an implied reference to J State or Valley.
I just posted the numbers, which matters for future sponsorship.
All this unnecessary speculation is sad.
Morristown College was an African American higher education institution located in Morristown, the seat of Hamblen County, Tennessee. It was founded in 1881 by the national Freedman's Aid Society of the Methodist Episcopal Church. The school was renamed Knoxville College-Morristown Campus in 1989 and closed in 1994. Prior to the civil rights movement, the college held the distinction of being one of only two institutions in East Tennessee for African Americans, the other being Knoxville College, founded in 1875.

Is it possible that FCS Playoff attendance is down across the board?
It's a good thing you folks agreed to the Leg...I mean, Celebration Bowl.
For Jackson State...Now I ain't trying to be starting something but with fan attendance like that why are you all not as successful with your football teams? If we had fans like that we could afford to hire the best coaches and give a lot of full scholarships to some of the best players.
To be honest, JSU fans are going to show up to support regardless of the record. Six of our games were either decided by less than 10 points or were given up by poor coaching in the 2nd half (BCU, South Alabama, Bama State). We will be a force next season and I'm certain the attendance will rise.
