In recent years, the Jasper High School Quarterback Club has basically been nonexistent.
While technically there has been a club, it has not been very active, according to the current club president Dell Green.
Green said a decrease in membership has led to less activity in recent years. The group is now in the middle of a membership drive, hoping to attract many more people.
“What we are trying to get across to people is this isn’t just a club for people with children who are playing. This club is open to our entire community. Anyone who cares about our football program should be active in the club,” Green said.
The club is currently meeting monthly in the Golden Viking Room inside the Jasper High School field house. The group will meet weekly during the football season. During the season, the coaching staff is expected to take some time each meeting to break down film.
“It takes three things to be successful in high school football: players, coaching and resources,” Jasper head coach Bryan Moore said. “Our quarterback club is an amazing way to support our kids by creating resources to help support them. I cannot thank our community enough as well as our QB club president Dell Green. Dell has worked tirelessly to grow the quarterback club, and we are well on our way to creating a strong, thriving club.”
During its first meeting in June, the club only garnered about 30 people total. In July, that number increased to more than 100 people.
“That’s exciting to see,” Moore said.
Green said the numbers were much better in July.
“There is an excitement growing around our football program,” Green said. “We just want to continue the momentum and grow this group so we can help the program as much as possible.”
Single memberships in the quarterback club are $100, while a couple is $150. For more information or to join, contact Green at 205-275-1977.
The date of the August meeting has not been set yet, but the Jasper football team will be holding its annual Meet the Vikings Scrimmage on Thursday, Aug. 16 at 6:30 p.m.
