"Tailgating" on the Troy campus was initiated during the 1990's through the example and leadership of Green Davis. In 1993 the area outside of Memorial Stadium was named in honor of Green Davis for his enduring efforts to boost Trojan spirit and promote enthusiastic pre-game activities and camaraderie. Green Davis was a Troy University alumnus and career officer in the U.S. Marine Corps.
