OUR SEASON BEGAN WITH A BANG ON AUGUST 28! Mike Bianchi was his usual, wonderful self as he entertained one of our larger crowds in a while! Everyone had a great time. Due to Hurricane Irma, we had to wait 4 weeks for our next dinner meeting. Finally, on Sept. 25, we welcomed FOX FL Sports personality, Paul Kennedy to our club! An overflow crowd greeted Paul, Marc Daniels, UCF's def. coord. and 5 high school player of the week winners. It was a great night! On Oct. 9, Andy Staples of Sports Illustrated and ESPNU Radio, channel 84 came by. He was so good, we had to end the questioning just to leave by 8:15! Following Andy, on Oct. 16, our old friend, Tony Barnhart, College Football" himself, came to see us again. He says we are his favorite club to visit! On Oct. 23, we welcomed a newcomer; Chris Spatola, a former Army Captain who was also a former star basketball player for West Point. Now Chris is a successful broadcaster for XM radio and ESPN. On Nov. 6, one of our favorites, Mark Packer of XM Radio's ESPNU, channel 84, came back to see us again. It was a fantastic night! Former coach, Steve Spurrier, followed on Nov. 13 with our biggest crowd in years.
Are you a UCF fan? Marc Daniels, of "96.9 The Game" and the radio voice of the Knights, has been at every meeting with his UCF report. Your hometown team is well represented at the Orlando Touchdown Club!
Many of us get to read Mike Bianchi in the Orlando Sentinel and listen to his radio show on "96.9 the Game" but have you ever met him? Like Marc Daniels, Mike Bianchi is a wonderful friend of the club and is seen at most every meeting. Both Marc and Mike would love to meet you!
Do you like high school football? At each meeting we will continue to honor young men from Orange and Seminole CO with our high school player of the week awards. On Monday, Dec. 4, we will announce the two high school players of the year!
