Tulane head basketball coach Mike Dunleavy, Jeff Duncan of The Times-Picayune, former LSU star Tommy Clapp, McDonogh 35 head coach Wayne Reese and Hahnville head coach Nick Saltaformaggio are among the speakers slated to address the audience at the weekly Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation Quarterback Club next Tuesday, Nov. 14 at Rock ‘n’ Bowl, 3016 South Carrollton Avenue in New Orleans.

In his second year as the head coach at Tulane, Dunleavy played 15 years in the NBA before serving as head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers, Milwaukee Bucks, Portland Trail Blazers and Los Angeles Clippers. He also served as general manager of the Clippers.

Duncan serves as general sports columnist for NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune. He was a member of the staff that won two Pulitzer Prizes for its coverage of Hurricane Katrina and has been honored four times as the Columnist of the Year by the Louisiana Sports Writers Association. He is the author of two books on the New Orleans Saints: Tales from the Saints Sideline and From Bags to Riches. Prior to his tenure in New Orleans, he worked at USA Today, The St. Petersburg (Fla.) Times and The Louisville (Ky.) Courier-Journal.

After a stellar career at Brother Martin, Clapp went on to play at LSU from 1984-87 under Bill Arnsparger and Mike Archer as a standout defensive lineman. He was named a permanent team captain for the 1987 squad. Clapp recorded 139 tackles, nine tackles for loss and four sacks. His son, Will, is the starting center for the 2017 Tigers.

In his 16th year as the head coach at McDonogh 35 and his 44th year as a head coach overall, Reese has previously served as the head coach at Booker T. Washington, Carver and Washington-Marion. Reese won the prestigious Eddie Robinson award from the Allstate Sugar Bowl in 2011 for his vast accomplishments without the resources that others possess.

In his fourth season at Hahnville, Saltaformaggio previously served as the head coach at East Jefferson, Chalmette, Abbeville and Oconee, GA. He guided the Warriors to their first and only state title in 2013, earning national coach of the year honors from NationalHSFootball.com.
