Third Quarterback Club Luncheon Set for Friday at SVCC

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – This Friday, Sept. 16, the third Susquehanna University Quarterback Club luncheon of the 2011 season will be held at the Susquehanna Valley Country Club in conjunction with the SU Alumni Golf Outing.

With the exception of this week, the luncheons are 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.

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).

In attendance every Friday at the luncheons 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 address the attendees and Meier will recap the previous week’s athletic events and preview upcoming contests. Briggs will recap last weekend’s conference opener at Johns Hopkins and the coaching staff will show a highlight film of the past weekend’s game.

This week, Cody Jones and Jack McCarty will also be in attendance and will give a brief speech as the Gus Weber Players 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.
