Trinity Episcopal to honor law enforcement

Trinity Episcopal will have a different look when it suits up Sept. 23 to take on MAIS rival Amite School Center.

To honor law enforcement, Trinity has tapped the contest as its “Blue Line Game.”

“A lot of kids at the school and on the team have family in law enforcement,” Trinity athletic director Andy Blair said. “With everything that’s happened around here and across the country, we don’t feel like those guys get enough recognition for putting their life on the line every day.”

Blair did not divulge the exact look of the uniform, saying he’d like to keep that a surprise, but he did say the team will have an alternate top with the law enforcement signature blue line draped on the jersey.

“Rex Sports is going to help us with this,” Blair said. “We kind of had an idea we wanted to do this, and we did some markup jerseys and decided it was something we needed to do.”

The mid-September home contest will be the Saints’ (1-0) first home contest of the season, and law enforcement personnel and their families will be admitted free of charge.

Trinity travels Friday to Canton Academy (1-0) after defeating Silliman Institute 29-14 Saturday.
