The NCAA passed down the decision last week to allow voluntary in-person workouts for all sports to resume on June 1. A step in the right direction to a potential return to sports in the fall.

The Troy Trojans haven't been on the field at Veterans Memorial Stadium since spring practices were shut down back in March, but thanks to the NCAA's ruling, the Trojans will be able to begin football related activities on Monday.

With the long layoff and new guidelines to follow, head coach Chip Lindsey says they are going to have to take things slower when getting the players ready.

"Just trying to get everything in order for next week and make sure we get our guys back and make sure we do it the right way and follow all the policies and guidelines," said Lindsey. "There's a lot to it. They can't just roll back in here and start working out and get themselves going. There's a lot of things to think through and make sure we have a great plan."

Troy is set to open the season on September 5th against Arkansas-Pine Bluff.
