Sixth Weekly Susquehanna Quarterback Club This Friday

Sixth Weekly Susquehanna Quarterback Club This Friday

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – The sixth Susquehanna University Quarterback Club luncheon of the 2013 season is scheduled for Friday, October 18, the day prior to the Crusaders’ Homecoming game against Centennial Conference opponent Moravian.

The luncheons are held every Friday at noon throughout the football season. As in years past, the event takes 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, Susquehanna Director of Athletics Pam Samuelson and Director of Athletic Communications Katie Meier.

Samuelson, Briggs and Meier will both address the attendees and Meier preview upcoming contests and season openers. Starting this week, Briggs’ coaching staff will show a highlight film of the past weekend’s game.

In addition, 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. This week’s Player of the Week will be defensive player Jared Minori (Tyrone, Pa./Bellwood-Antis). 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, this week will feature a second guest speaker in Susquehanna head men’s and women’s cross country coach Marty Owens, who will recap the season to date and look ahead to conference championships in early November.
