Capture Big Blue Spirit at Third Annual Legends Weekend


Tennessee State University former football players will help kick off the HBCU's Centennial celebrations with their highly touted, must attend "Legends Weekend". In its third year, The Legends Weekend, is not just a football game for former Big Blue players. Many players use the weekend as an opportunity to meet young players to offer guidance, encouragement, and mentoring. Former players have also donated to the team by helping renovated the football team locker rooms. The Legends Weekend events are sponsored by the TSU's Big Blue Football Alumni Chapter.

In honor of Tennessee State University's Centennial year, TSU's Football Alumni chapter is adding a twist to this year's weekend festivities by playing Vanderbilt University's Football Legends. Players who played from 1950–2008 at both schools are invited to participate in a game of flag football before TSU's Blue and White scrimmage. Former players are inviting you to put on your blue and white(or black and gold) and meet them at "The Hole".

A rooster of twenty players will play for each team. Not a football player? Don't worry, there will be plenty of room for coaching, sideline critiques, and cheering on the players. Bring your school pride and celebrate with the Big Blue Tigers. And yes, as in previous years, Bengay and ice are free to all players!

Tennessee State University's Sustaining the Legacy through Excellence, Resilience and Unity 100th year anniversary will begin April 14-21, 2012. But TSU Football Alumni Chapter encourages everyone to start the celebrations early by joining The Legends Weekend Tiger and Commodore Mixer on Friday, April 13, 2012 starting at 9:00pm at the Maxwell House Hotel. The cost of admittance is $10 in advance and $15 at the door.
