It’s Pacific League day at this week’s Pasadena Quarterbacks Club.
The non-profit organization, which helps support local high school and college football programs, welcomes six of the league’s eight coaches, including Muir’s John Harvey, Pasadena’s Randy Horton and Arcadia’s Chris Long, to speak Friday. The weekly luncheon is scheduled for the Courtyard by Marriott, located at 180 North Fair Oaks Avenue in Pasadena.
Lunch, which is $23 for members and $30 for non-member guests, begins at 11:50 a.m. Doors open at 11:30, with $5 valet parking available at the hotel.
Glendale’s John Tuttle, Hoover’s Andrew Policky and Crescenta Valley’s Paul Schilling are also scheduled to speak.
The Pacific League opens play this week, with the three featured games being Crescenta Valley at Muir, Pasadena at Glendale and Arcadia at Burroughs/Burbank. All are slated for 7p.m on Friday.
