The C Spire 1st & 10 club meetings signal an end to the dog days of summer and the beginning of the most anticipated season of the year for sports fans in the south, football!

Over the past 20 years the C Spire 1st & 10 Club and the LendingTree Bowl have kicked-off the football season with a series of  meetings that cover all the latest and greatest topics in sports. The club boasts one of the best speaker schedules in the southeast with a diverse lineup of sports celebrities, college and professional head coaches, along with media personalities. Previous speakers have included Nick Saban, Gus Malzahn, Leroy Jordan, Pat Sullivan, Phil Fulmer, Mike Gottfried, and Tim Brando, just to name a few. The club meets weekly throughout the college football season on Monday.

In addition to an exciting speaker schedule,  the club will honor high school athletes and scholars for their performances on the field and in the classroom.
