As they do several times a year, The Westbank Quarterback Club (WBQC) recognized area high school coaches and their athletes last month at the Four Columns on the Westbank. The athletes were honored for their individual efforts from the past fall and winter sports they competed in. The young athletes represented their schools in sports such as bowling, soccer, football, and basketball. All of the athletes had received Athlete of the Week Honors during their perspective and current seasons.
The Quarterback Club hosted a very cordial affair which included dinner and an impressive quest speaker who is no stranger to the WBQC. Rod West who is the Executive Vice President and CAO of Entergy , and a former Notre Dame linebacker and tight end who played on Lou Holz’s 1988 National Championship team. His message to the young athletes, coaches, and family members was inspirational, spiritual, and left all with the open-ended option to explore the capabilities and opportunities before them.
All of the athletes and coaches were given the opportunity to address the audience and each had meaningful words to share with all. The coaches expressed their appreciation for the work and accomplishments of the athletes and the athletes expressed their gratitude for the support of their coaches, family, God, and the WBQC honors.
