Tailgate with the Trojan Horse at semi-state

The Trojan Horse Tailgate will be in action at the Semi-State football game this Friday night at West Lafayette. Given the cold weather being predicted, the Horse will offer a drive-by service. Grab a burger or hotdog and a cup of hot chocolate. Service will begin at 6 p.m. Save the sides for next season ... this is really more of a "thanks for coming and braving the cold" type of service. Of course, donations will be accepted to defray costs and get a jump on next season! Go Trojans!

Athletic Banners
Athletes, coaches and sports fans, we are letting go of our old sports athletic banners! During a 2022 spring cleaning we came across over a hundred sports athletic banners, some dating back to 1969. If you were on or coached one of these teams and would like to have some memorabilia for your home or office, we are giving them away. It is first come first serve. Here is a list of all the sport championship banners we have and the ones that have been claimed. 

Please contact Anne Homan at if you would like one.
