Troy played collegiate basketball at Tri-State University and was a three year letterman and was the leading NAIA free-throw shooter in the 1983-84 season with a 91.8 average. Troy was a highly successful basketball coach at Westview High School, leading his team to back-to-back IHSAA State Championships in class 2A.
