The Tennessee Titans have announced the complete itinerary for the 14th Titans Caravan, a regional series of school visits and free, public autograph signings.  Titans Caravan, sponsored by Grange Insurance, will make 50 total stops in Tennessee, Kentucky and Alabama from April 30 through May 11.

The Caravan kicks off in Robertson County, Tenn., on Monday, April 30, with two-time All-Pro tackle Michael Roos. Students from Greenbrier and Watauga Elementary Schools will come together to hear from Roos in a special Titans Caravan school program.

A total of 28 schools will participate this year in Titans Caravan (24 total stops). The school program features a high-energy, educational message from seven-time Pro Bowl Titans mascot T-Rac, host Rhett Bryan and a Titans player.  The Titans use the opportunity to speak to the youngsters about making good choices in all parts of their lives and the importance of daily exercise. T-Rac and the Titans school program are sponsored by Tennessee State Parks, which celebrates its 75th anniversary in 2012 and will provide several unique surprises to viewers during the program.

In addition to the school stops, there will be 26 public events on the Caravan, which allow fans to meet Titans players, T-Rac and the “Voice of the Titans” Mike Keith.  Posters are provided to all Caravan attendees for autographs, and photos are encouraged.  Every Titans Caravan public event is sponsored by the Trusted Choice agents of the Insurors of Tennessee and is done at no charge to fans.  Public stops generally last one hour.

Also for the first time, the U.S. Army will be joining the Titans Caravan public stops.  Fans will have the opportunity take part in a cornhole competition, test their skills at a variety of team-building exercises and claim free commemorative Titans Caravan 2012 dog tags.  U.S. Army representatives will be on hand to share the exciting opportunities available in today’s Army.

On Monday, May 7, Titans Caravan will have the first-ever “Legends Day.”  Former Titans Pro Bowl players Frank Wycheck and Blaine Bishop will tour Middle Tennessee as Titans Caravan’s special guests. Free posters commemorating Titans Caravan Legends Day will be given away to fans.

The entire player lineup for Titans Caravan will be announced later in April.  Besides the players who will appear, head coach Mike Munchak will spend an entire day with the Caravan.

“This is our most ambitious Titans Caravan in years,” said Don MacLachlan, Titans executive vice president for administration and facilities. “Our staff has been planning this event since early January, and we believe that Titans fans will have their greatest access ever to Titans players. And T-Rac’s new school program with Tennessee State Parks is just terrific!”

Titans Caravan began in 1998 as a small effort to spread goodwill through the region. Today, six full-time staffers travel with Titans players and T-Rac through the Mid-South on a specially-decorated motor coach provided by Grand Avenue.  Since 1998, Titans Caravan has made over 700 stops, traveled approximately 50,000 miles, visited close to 300 schools and allowed the team to interact directly with an estimated audience well in excess of 100,000 fans.
