NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee State Athletic Department is pleased to announce “Spring Fling” for Saturday, Apr. 11.
The festivities will include the Boston-Moon Relays starting at 9 a.m., continue with the football Legends Game at 1 p.m. and conclude with the Blue & White Game at 3 p.m.
The Boston-Moon Relays honors TSU greats Ralph Boston and John Moon and will be the sole chance to see the Flying Tigers and Tigerbelles at home this Outdoor Season.
The TSU track and field team will also recognize last season’s OVC Championship team and present the members of the squad their championship rings at approximately 11:30 a.m. after the 4x100 meter relay.
While the Tigerbelles and Flying Tigers wrap up their meet, former football players will take the field at Hale Stadium for the annual Legends Game.
Tiger alums will play flag football and will make way for the current crop of TSU players at 3 p.m.
The Blue & White game will pit the offense (Blue) against the defense (white) with a unique scoring system. The offense will get points by getting into the end zone and by getting first downs while the defense can get on the scoreboard via forcing turnovers or three-and-outs.
The Blue & White game will signal the end of spring practices and be the final chance to see the Tigers until fall camp.
Admission to the Boston-Moon Relays is $5 for adults and $3 for fans ages 5-17. TSU students and children five and under are free.
There is no charge for the Legends and Blue & White Game.
