The Orlando Touchdown Club
The Orlando TD Club had one of it's best and most successful seasons in 2018! Next to happen is our spring, 2019 dinner meeting. As soon as we have a date and a speaker, we will happily announce it to everyone!
Our club is super strong on entertainment! Along with a new speaker at every meeting, we were extra lucky to have Mike Bianchi as our new MC and Marc Daniels with his wonderful UCF report all season long. We'll see them both again in 2019!
Back to 2018, we think our lineup of speakers was one of the best we ever had! Here is a brief review of the 2018 season:
Tues, Sept. 4 Tony Barnhart Tony, senior writer for TMG Sports, is always great! He will be our opening night speaker on Sept. 9!
Mon, Sept. 17 Houston Nutt Coach Nutt, an analyst with CBS Sports and former coach at 'Ole Miss and Arkansas, was simply terrific in his debut with us. We were laughing and smiling all night long!
Mon, Oct. 8 Danny White Our club welcomed the charismatic AD from UCF to see us for the first time!
Mon, Oct. 15 Andrea Adelson, a former Gator graduate who wrote for the Orlando Sentinel and now works for ESPN. Andrea was a lot of fun to be with!
Mon, Oct. 29 Stan Van Gundy, our favorite basketball coach entertained us all night! Do you think Coach Van Gundy doesn't know people and sports?
Mon, Nov. 12 Mark Packer, the #1 college sports personality on Sirius XM Radio, ESPNU, channel 84!!! This gentleman never disappoints us.
Mon, Nov. 26 Lou Holtz, former Notre Dame coach and ESPN commentator. To any of the 175 people who were present for Coach Holtz that evening, we still feel the glow from that wonderful evening!
Mon, Dec. 3 Charles Davis, former star def. back at Univ. of TN and now with FOX Sports as a football analyst. Very few people can deliver a message as real and sincere as Charles Davis.
As for all the high school players of the week, we honored 19 schools and 22 young men in 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.
WHO is your favorite college team? Whoever it is, you'll have some company!
