GNOSF QB Club opening luncheon Tuesday canceled due to weather
The season opening meeting of the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation Quarterback Club scheduled for tomorrow (Tues., Aug. 29) at Rock ‘n’ Bowl, has been cancelled. A poor weather forecast and potential street flooding necessitated the decision.

A local high school player of the week is chosen throughout the season with a metro prep player of the year announced at the end of the season, sponsored by the R&L Carriers New Orleans Bowl. Lunch is served weekly.
In addition, Chevron sponsors student-athletes of the week each week, who receive plaques and recognition for their accomplishments in the classroom.
