SELINSGROVE, Pa. – The second Susquehanna University Quarterback Club luncheon of the 2011 season is scheduled for Friday, Sept. 9, the day before the Crusaders’ conference opener at Johns Hopkins.
In attendance every Friday will be head coach Steve
Briggs, the SU football coaching staff, Susquehanna
Director of Athletics Pam Samuelson and Director
of Athletic Communications Katie Meier.
Samuelson, Briggs and Meier will both address the attendees and Meier will recap the previous week’s athletic events and preview upcoming contests. This week, seniors Rich Palazzi and Trevor Terpening will also be in attendance as Briggs and his staff will recap last weekend’s thrilling overtime victory against Wilkes. Also starting this Friday, Briggs’ coaching staff will show a highlight film of the past weekend’s game.
With the exception of the first luncheon, the event will highlight the team’s weekly Gus Weber Crusader Football Player of the Week. The award is named in honor of late Susquehanna president Gustave Weber, who was Susquehanna president for more than 18 years from 1959 through 1977. A collegiate football standout at Wagner College, Weber was an avid Crusader athletics booster who actually served as head football coach for the final two games of 1965.
The Player of the Week will give a brief speech.
The luncheons will be held every Friday at noon throughout the football season. As in years past, the event will take place in the Apple Community Room of the James W. Garrett Sports Complex on the Susquehanna campus with the exception of Sept. 16, when the luncheon will be held at the Susquehanna Valley Country Club in conjunction with the SU Alumni Golf Outing.
A yearly membership to the QB Club is $40. That amount does NOT include the weekly fee for lunch ($8.50, with the exception of the Sept. 16th luncheon which is $15.00).
