Colts Tailgate Tour Hits Evansville

Tight end Dwayne Allen and linebacker Jerrell Freeman took time out of their busy summers to make a stop in the River City on the seventh and final edition of the Colts Tailgate Tour.
Tight end Dwayne Allen and linebacker Jerrell Freeman took time out of their busy summers to make a stop in the River City on the seventh and final edition of the Colts Tailgate Tour.  With Allen and Freeman were a pair of Colts cheerleaders.

    Hundreds of fans lined up even before the gates opened for a chance to meet the players, play some games and even tour a mobile museum.

    "We always make sure we come to Evansville," says Colts' Director of Special Events Joe Fonderoli. "The fans down here are great and we really appreciate them coming out."

    Allen and Freeman arrived by helicopter just before the event began, and left the same way when the festivities wrapped up.

    "I get to be me," says Allen.  "It's easier for me to get geared up to do things like this, interacting with the fans, than it is for me to get ready to play football."

    "It's exciting," Freeman adds. "To be able to get out and mingle with the fans and give us some more support."

    The Colts have two weeks until training camp begins in Anderson, IN.  Allen says their check-in date is Saturday July 27.
