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 24 years the C Spire 1st & 10 Club and the 68 Ventures 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 Philip Rivers just to name a few. The club meets monthly throughout the college football season.

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. The club will present the Offensive and Defensive player of the month to deserving football players from Mobile and Baldwin County, while two exceptional high school students will receive the  Scholar of the Month award.
