The Orlando Touchdown Club
HELLO COLLEGE FOOTBALL FANS! We are pleased to announce Josh Heupel, new head coach of the UCF Knights, will be our 2018 Spring dinner meeting speaker! The date is Monday, April 23. It promises to be a fun night with Mike Bianchi, top columnist of the Orlando Sentinel and host on "96.9 the Game," as our new MC and for Marc Daniels, radio voice of the Knights and prominent host on "96.9 the Game," to make the introduction.
Another announcement; until April 23, we have decided to keep the existing membership rates the same as last year. That means $325 per person and $275 for members under the age of 40. If you'd like to save some $$$ now, please send us your new membership checks before our April 23 spring meeting.
2017 was another good year for us. Our spring speaker was Gene Chizik, former UCF assistant and head coach of the 2010 national champion Auburn Tigers. In the fall, we opened with regular, Mike Bianchi. Following Mike we had Paul Kennedy of FOX Sports - Florida. Next, we welcomed Andy Staples of Sports Illustrated and ESPNU Radio and
Tony Barnhart, "Mr. College FB." In late October, a newcomer; Chris Spatola, the former West Point captain and basketball star, delivered an inspirational message to our audience. We followed Chris with one of our big favorites, Mark Packer of XM Radio's ESPNU, channel 84. Following Mark, we had our largest ever crowd when Steve Spurrier, came to see us again. For our final meeting of the year, good friend, FOX Sports personality and commentator,
Charles Davis, was with us.
As usual for 2017, we honored the Orange and Seminole Co high school players of the week. That won't change for 2018. The Orlando Touchdown Club loves to give these deserving young men proper recognition for what they do on the field and in the classroom.
Are you a UCF fan? If so, please join us! Along with having Coach Josh Heupel as our spring speaker, our good friend, Marc Daniels, of "96.9 The Game" and the radio voice of the Knights, will continue be with us and "talk" UCF football all season long. Your hometown team is well represented at the Orlando Touchdown Club!
