While players and coaches across the state are gearing up for another football season, so is KLLM Transport Services.
On Thursday night at Trustmark Park in Pearl, the Mississippi-based company will unveil tractor-trailers for the Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Southern Miss, and Jackson State football teams.
The event, which will take place from 5-7 p.m., will mark the 14th year KLLM has provided equipment trucks to at least one of the state’s major programs. Each school will receive the truck free of charge, with KLLM also covering the costs of fuel and drivers throughout the year.
Those in attendance will be able to pick up University-specific grab-and-go items, take pictures inside and outside the cabs, and interact with the schools’ mascots and cheerleaders.
Any tickets to the Mississippi Braves matchup against the Pensacola Blue Wahoos – first pitch set for 6:35 p.m. – will grant patrons access to the trucks. SportsTalk Mississippi will also be live from Trustmark Park from 3-6 p.m.
