The Tennessee Titans Caravan traveled to Cookeville, Knoxville and Chattanooga Tennessee between yesterday and today. Jake Locker, Rob Bironas and Kenny Britt all made appearances to fans during the numerous stops.
Today the tour actually started in Blountville were Locker was up and ready to go at an Elementary school at 8:15 a.m. The program lists that when a player makes an appearance they give a speech about how important it is to keep healthy and to get at least 60 minutes a day of exercise.
Locker did this drill at many different elementary schools between yesterday and today. He also appeared at Hampton Elementary, and Mosheim Elementary schools. By 3:30 p.m. he was in Knoxville at the Academy Sports Outdoors and it wasn’t until 6:30 p.m. when Kenny Britt joined him at the Academy Sports Outdoors’ location in Chattanooga.
Today, Locker made more appearances this time with Rob Bironas and Jake Locker who greeted over 600 fans today between Smithville Elementary, Northfield Elementary and Homestead Elementary all in Crossville. Bob Hyde (Vice President of Community Relations for the Titans) said it was the fifth largest crowd in Titans Caravan history.
It was the first time that Locker has attended the Titans Caravan, considering his recent drafting, but he was surprised by the number of fans that approached him and told him they liked his potential and that they were excited to have him on the team. Locker wasn’t the only on getting attention though, Bironas was pulled aside a few times by fans to reminisce on some kicks that helped get the Titans to their 9-7 record last year.
The Titans Caravan continues throughout this week until Friday May 11.
