Tohono O'odham JegosTOHONO O’ODHAM COLLEGE JEGOS

Location: Sells, AZ

Division: NJCAA (National Junior College Athletic Association)

Comment: The team name is pronounced “Jug-ohs” despite the way it may seem. That is how the word is pronounced in the Native American language of the Tohono O’odham people. What are Jegos? Here is an answer in the words of the folks at Tohono O’odham College:

“Jegos is the windy dust storm that comes before the monsoon rain. Powerful wind kicks up the dust, bends trees, and sweeps across the land before the rain pours down. Jegos represents the powerful Tohono O’odham Community College athletes coming your way.”
