Schedule For Monday, October 30, 2017

On Monday night, October 30th, the Macon Touchdown Club will welcome Coach Jim Grobe as our feature speaker.

Jim Grobe came out of retirement prior to the 2016 football season to coach at Baylor University after Art Briles was fired last summer. In his only season in Waco, he led the Bears to a 7-6 record and a 31-12 win over heavily favored Boise State in the Cactus Bowl in Arizona. Coach Grobe had retired from football in 2013 after spending 13 seasons at Wake Forest University. He led the Demon Deacons to unparalleled success during the 2006 season when they posted an 11-3 record which included an ACC championship and a 9-6 win over Georgia Tech in the title game, and a spot in the 2007 Orange Bowl where they lost to Louisville 24-13. Coach Grobe was a unanimous choice for ACC Coach of the year and was also named National Coach of the Year. He also served as head coach at Ohio University from 1995-2000.

As always, we will meet at The Methodist Home For Children, in The Rumford Center. The address is 304 Pierce Avenue, and the meeting begins at 6:30 pm.

Guest Fee is $30.00, and includes dinner, club activities, recognition of local high school athletes, recognition of a local high school and the speaker.
