Week Nine of SU QB Club Set for Friday

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – The ninth and second-to-last Susquehanna University Quarterback Club luncheon of the 2012 season is scheduled for Friday, Nov. 2, the day before the Crusaders’ travel to take on McDaniel on Saturday at 1 p.m.

The Quarterback Club 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).

In attendance every Friday will be head coach Steve Briggs, the SU football coaching staff, Director of Athletics Pam Samuelson and Susquehanna Director of Athletic Communications Katie Meier. Samuelson, Briggs and Meier will both address the attendees and Meier preview upcoming contests and the previous weeks’ results. Briggs’ coaching staff will show a highlight film of the past weekend’s game.

Each luncheon will also highlight the team’s weekly Wealth Professionals/Gus Weber Crusader Football Player of the Week who will give a brief speech. Wealth Professionals of Shamokin has partnered with Susquehanna as the official sponsor of the Player of the Week Award. The sponsorship was spearheaded by Ken Shedleski, the owner and President of Wealth Professionals.

The award is also named in honor of late Susquehanna president Gustave Weber, who was Susquehanna’s 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.

In addition, head women’s basketball coach Jim Reed will address the crowd as he discusses the upcoming women’s basketball season as the team is in the midst of preseason practices.
