Trey Mock didn\u2019t always dream about a\u00a0future as\u00a0a professional mascot, but now\u00a0in his eleventh season as the beloved\u00a0Blue, it\u2019s hard\u00a0for him\u00a0to imagine anything else. Not only has Trey embodied Blue for\u00a0the past decade,\u00a0he also\u00a0helped design and create\u00a0the mascot in 2006 when the Indianapolis Colts recruited him to spearhead the program. Blue was Trey\u2019s first baby. Now with two children of his own and married to a former Colts cheerleader, the Mock family lives and breathes the Indianapolis Colts. Born and raised in Marietta, Georgia, Trey was always a fan of sports. He attended college at Auburn University and\u00a0earned himself a full ride scholarship as\u00a0Aubie\u00a0the Tiger. In 2003, Trey won the Mascot National Championship. He was soon recruited by the Atlanta Falcons and later by the Buffalo Bills.\u00a0When\u00a0the Indianapolis Colts called, Trey\u00a0was one of 58 applicants vying for a role which didn\u2019t\u00a0yet exist\u00a0\u2013 and as they say, the rest is history. Trey has already had quite a remarkable career as Blue. His greatest\u00a0moment so far came very early\u00a0in his first year when the Colts won the Super Bowl. With the team winning in the pouring\u00a0rain, hearing Prince play \u201cPurple Rain\u201d at halftime, and proudly donning a persona\u00a0he\u00a0created, Trey says that\u00a0memory\u00a0is\u00a0pretty hard\u00a0to\u00a0beat. Trey is busy all year long;\u00a0not just during football season. He visits over 100 schools throughout Indiana every year, meeting about 40,000 students. He also\u00a0visits hospitals, youth groups\u00a0and various Colts events.\u00a0His shows,\u00a0endorsed by the United States Department of Education,\u00a0are interactive and high-energy,\u00a0featuring\u00a0special guest appearances by the Colts cheerleaders, Dwayne Allen\u00a0and Andrew Luck. Trey\u00a0promotes messages\u00a0that\u00a0encourage anti-bullying, healthy eating\u00a0and the importance of imagination and education \u2013 all\u00a0topics near and dear to his heart. Trey\u2019s newest venture might be his most personal and ambitious yet. He has written a book,\u00a0Blue\u2019s Road Trip through Indiana,\u00a0which he calls a \u201cfun love letter to the state.\u201d The book chronicles Blue\u2019s alphabetical adventure across\u00a0Indiana, highlighting 26 of Trey\u2019s favorite spots. For example,\u00a0C is for Conner Prairie, and L is for Lucas Oil Stadium.\u00a0Trey\u2019s book is a natural extension of his work, both educational and entertaining, which are the cornerstones of Blue\u2019s appearances in the community.\u00a0Trey says\u00a0that this book is a way for him\u00a0to thank Hoosiers\u00a0for\u00a0cheering him\u00a0on\u00a0for the past ten years. The\u00a0Mock family hits the road this summer to promote the book, and Trey is\u00a0excited to share this adventure with his wife and children \u2013 and\u00a0Blue, of course. After all, Blue really is part of the family. Trey says that being Blue is sometimes like having a pet, especially when he finds blue fur everywhere! He hopes the\u00a0book teaches kids\u00a0about\u00a0how great Indiana is and encourages\u00a0them to \u201cGo and make your own\u00a0adventure. Unplug, pack a lunch\u00a0and explore.\u201d There is certainly more adventure in Trey\u2019s future. After this summer\u2019s book tour, he will jump right into a busy football season, return\u00a0to school to finish his degree\u00a0and will begin work on Blue\u2019s second book.
