Weekly Quarterback Club Luncheons Begin This Friday

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – The 2015 weekly Susquehanna Quarterback Club luncheons begin this Friday, Sept. 4, the day before the season officially opens when the Crusaders welcome Lycoming College to Lopardo Stadium at 1 p.m.

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.

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 Tom Perkovich, members of the SU football coaching staff, Susquehanna Director of Athletics Pam Samuelson and Director of Athletic Communications Katie Meier.

With the exception of the first luncheon, each luncheon will also highlight the team's weekly Gus Weber Crusader Football Player of the Week who will give a brief speech. 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.
