Bob Commings, Jr., and Coach Nate Moore with 2018 Hardnose Award winner Jamir Thomas

Each Tuesday throughout the season, the Touchdown Club meets at the Massillon Eagles where members can enjoy a delicious lunch and listen to Tiger Head Coach Nate Moore and his player guests discuss both the previous game and the upcoming opponent.  It’s always a great time as the atmosphere is more casual and intimate than the Monday evening Booster Club event, with players and coaches sitting alongside the members during the meal, which makes for some great football talk.

In addition, each member is provided an opportunity to cast a weekly vote that culminates in the selection of the annual Bob Commings Memorial Hardnose Award winner.  Some of the past winners include John Mulbach (Ohio State), David Whitfield (Ohio State), Chris Spielman (Ohio State), Shawn Crable (Michigan) and Brian Gamble (Illinois/Ashland).

The Club is open to anyone eager to discuss Massillon football.  The membership fee is $25 and can be purchased at the door prior to any gathering.  This fee covers the cost of coach and player lunches, the Hardnose Award trophy and administrative fees.  The weekly cost for lunch is $8.00, except for the week of the McKinley game, when the cost is $12.00.  That meeting includes all of the senior players, plus entertainment by the Tiger Swing Band and cheerleaders.  Guests can attend one meeting for the cost of the lunch.

The first meeting of the 2019 season is scheduled for August 27 at 11:30 am.  See you there.

Inquiries can be made to Linda Waechter, Co-Chairman, at (330) 833-8421.
