MISSION

Trojans Together Collective is the OFFICIAL Troy University NIL entity formed to recognize and realize name, image, and likeness opportunities for TROY student-athletes in all sports.  Building on the storied tradition of TROY Athletics, our mission is to Build Communities, Empower Players, and Win Together.  Your membership in Trojans Together assists athletes in accomplishing that mission and ensuring TROY Athletics maintains its leadership position and competitive legacy in the Sun Belt Conference and among Group of Five institutions across the country.

BUILD
COMMUNITIES

We strive to enhance and highlight charitable causes and business partners though NIL deals with student-athletes. We aspire to use the NIL platform to foster deeper relationships, broader collaboration, and build stronger communities in Pike County and throughout the Wiregrass region.  

 

Much of this work is accomplished through strategic NIL partnerships with local, regional, and (in some cases) national non-profits.  Trojans Together enters into NIL contracts with student-athletes who work to highlight, enhance, and support the mission and vision of those non-profit organizations.

The ‘Build Communities’ concept is perhaps the most fulfilling work we do as it relates to our founding mission. The experiences that our student-athletes gain through this work is life-changing and the impact will have generational impact. We are proud to play a part in those meaningful outcomes and we are grateful to our Trojans Together sponsors who provide the resources to make that happen.

EMPOWER
PLAYERS

We work to help student-athletes enjoy and understand the opportunities inherent in high-quality brand advancement, financial stewardship, contract management, and the power of giving back to others who may never be able to reciprocate those actions.

 

To that end, we partner with Troy Athletics and Troy University to support student-athletes as they develop and monetize their brand.  Our educational components related to finance, legal, accounting, and business development are provided by real people, who love TROY and its students.  Whether through Trojans Together Board Members who provide one-on-one support for these areas or through the NIL certification program from the Troy University Idea Bank, our student-athletes know they have our support at every turn.

Troy Athletics has been at the forefront of NIL since its inception as we strive to provide our student-athletes with every possible resources to be successful on and off the field.

The new NIL landscape within college athletics allows student-athletes to lean into their entrepreneurial spirit, and we want to support that.

WIN
TOGETHER

We aspire to see student-athletes win decisively on the field, in their communities, and in life.  We believe that strong communities and empowered student-athletes  enhance winning opportunities for everyone.

 

We believe winning is an outcome, not a right, an event, or even an ideal.  Winning is what happens when the ingredients of the right people, great planning, proper preparation, and maximum effort come together.  Every phase of Trojans Together is built toward this outcome.  The storied legacy of winning in the TROY Athletics tradition is still very much alive and thriving.  As we enter into a new “NIL” era of intercollegiate athletics, Trojans Together provides a platform for elite people to come together for a single outcome…
WIN TOGETHER.

TROJANS TOGETHER COLLECTIVE

Troy University has built a longstanding legacy of winning for many years. Through Trojans Together Collective we want to see our student athletes continue to excel both on and off the field for years to come.  When we come together, we WIN together.  Go Trojans!
