The Trenton Trojans took the field Wednesday night in front of their hometown fans. No one got hit and no points were scored. In fact, their was mostly just waving.
For the third year, all three teams of the football program, as well as the cheer squads, were introduced to parents and fans from the community at Farrier Stadium.
"It's cool because the kids just eat it up and it kind of gets the excitement really high," Assistant Varsity Coach Aaron Segedi said comparing the event to a pep rally.
According to Segedi, the idea was born in 2008 by 25-year Trenton Head Coach Bob Czarnecki after a season ending awards event of a similar theme in terms of introducing players.
"He said, 'Why don't we do this at the beginning of the year. Get the kids out there a little more and really let the community get to know them and identify with them'," said Segedi.
"Meet The Trojans" night is open to anyone who roots for Trenton football. It starts at 6 p.m. the night before the teams' first scrimmages. The first hour of the night is a big picnic--hot dogs, chips, cookies, and raffles then everyone makes their way over to the stadium. We will see you there next year.
