The Troy University football program continued to build on the success of four consecutive Sun Belt Conference titles by signing 25 players to National Letters of Intent on National Signing Day.

The crop of new Trojans included a heavy emphasis on stocking the defensive secondary, with nine of the incoming players expected to play defensive back. On the offensive side of the ball, the highest percentage of newcomers for a second straight year will play on the line, where there were seven signees.

“We were very thin in the secondary last year in terms of depth and we took major steps to address that problem,” Trojans head coach Larry Blakeney, who will be in his 20th season at Troy in 2010, said. “We signed some young players with ability. It will be exciting to see how they do when they get here, and how they fit in with the returning players we have back there.”

In addition to the defensive backs and offensive linemen, the Trojans added three receivers, three defensive linemen, a linebacker, a running back and a quarterback.
