“I am very excited about Trojan Tour ’13 and the opportunity for our coaches and staff to meet so many of our supporters in their own backyard," Hartwell said. "We believe that Trojan Tour ’13 will not only further enhance our relationship with current Trojan fans, but also be an outstanding vehicle to welcome new fans to the Troy Family.”

“It’s pretty exciting to think about visiting nine cities in three states over five days.” Troy Athletics director of development for major gifts Chuck Carson said. “This new concept not only gives us the opportunity to meet with our fans in person, but it also opens the door to thousands of others who can interact with the entire Tour through social media. I believe it is a great step forward in our continued effort to engage our alumni, fans, and friends in a way that is unique and meaningful for everyone.”
