Three Tampa Bay Buccaneers legends dropped in on the 2019 FNF Tampa Bay Campus Tour on Sept. 23 for one of the biggest rivalry games in the state. Vincent Jackson, Dexter Jackson and Ricky Reynolds took part in the pregame festivities before Plant High hosted Bloomingdale.
This game served as the fifth of eight stops with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during the fall season. Host Plant fell to Bloomingdale 22-10 at Dad’s Stadium. FNF Tampa Bay arranged for the three Bucs alumni to take part in a pregame ceremony that saw the NFL legends join the players and referees for the pregame coin toss. The former Bucs players then visited with fans under the Bucs tent and signed autographs. The Bucs mascot, Captain Fear, and two members of the cheer team also attended the game at Plant High.

The FNF Tampa Bay Campus Tour staff collaborated with the Bucs to engage fans with giveaways and interactive activities. We distributed hundreds of Bucs prizes as well as over 100 copies of the 2019 edition of FNF Tampa Bay. Fans who wore Bucs gears received prize packs filled with one of each of the giveaway products, which included hats, t-shirts, lanyards, and FNF Tampa Bay magazines.
