Legends Weekend 6 runs April 10-12. The TSU Football Alumni Chapter is excited about this year’s Alvin ‘Cat’ Coleman Legends Weekend 6 held in conjunction with the third annual Big Blue Coming Home Weekend scheduled for April 10-12. Players from 1950–2010 are invited to participate in a game of flag football preceding the Blue and White scrimmage, to put on their game face and show that ole Tiger spirit.

A roster of 20 players will make up the Legends teams. Don’t miss your opportunity to root from the sideline. They look forward to all of their Tigers coming back to be a part of this exciting weekend.
