Satterfield to speak at TD Club luncheon

PICKENS — The Pickens Touchdown Club will host a former national championship-winning college football coach at a community luncheon this Friday.

The luncheon, scheduled to coincide with the Blue Flame’s visit from county rival Liberty on Friday, will run from noon-1 p.m. at the GateHouse Restaurant at 116 Ann St. Cost will be $12 per person.

The guest speaker for the event will be former Furman University coach Jimmy Satterfield, who led the Paladins to the 1988 NCAA Division I-AA national championship.

Attendees will be able to watch highlights from last week’s Pickens game, and players of the week will also be recognized.

Luncheons will also be held on Sept. 25 and Oct. 9 and 30, the days of Pickens’ home games with West-Oak, Seneca and Belton-Honea Path, respectively.

Proceeds from the luncheons will go to support all levels of Blue Flame football.
