The Troy Trojans football program is offering a special commemorative replica mini-helmet of the 1987 football team for season ticket holders.

Troy fans that purchase season tickets for the upcoming 2022 season by June 3 will receive a free replica mini-helmet of the iconic Troy State football helmet worn during the 1987 NCAA Division II National Championship team. Troy is offering the mini helmets as part of a celebration of the 35th anniversary of the 1987 team.

“We’re excited to once again offer our loyal season ticket holders a unique piece of Troy memorabilia for their collections,” Troy Athletic Director Brent Jones said. “The 1987 National Championship team under Hall of Fame coach Rick Rhoades holds a special place in our department’s history, and this mini-helmet is a great way to honor their legacy. Additionally, the home schedule brings a natural rival in Southern Miss, an old-school rival in Marshall and a marquee matchup in Army to The Vet this season.”
