Troy was a multi-sport athlete at Dillon, excelling at football, basketball, and track. His senior football season saw him finish as the Defensive Player of the Year, and First Team All-State at quarterback.

In his freshman year at Montana State, Troy was named Big Sky Freshman of the Year. He started games at both running back and linebacker. He was believed to be the first MSU true freshman to start in his first game at running back in at least 30 years.

In 2018 he took over at quarterback and finished the season as the first-team All-Big Sky quarterback. He also landed on the Third Team All-America list as a sophomore. In 11 starts at quarterback that year, he rushed for over 100 yards, nine times.

In 2019, the Cats needed Troy on the defensive side of the ball. He earned First Team All-American honors at linebacker, and also nabbed All-Big Sky honors. In 10 games he finished with 6.5 sacks, 11.5 tackles for loss, an interception, and five pass breakups. He also rushed for 336 yards and seven touchdowns, starting three games on both sides of the ball.

In 2021, he became the fourth Bobcat ever to earn national player of the year recognition, as he finished his senior campaign as the FCS ADA National Defensive Player of the Year.

Troy was drafted in the second round of the NFL Draft, with the 58th overall pick, by the Atlanta Falcons. He made his season debut against the Rams in week 2. Troy made his first start in week 6, against the 49ers where he recorded a season-high 13 tackles.
