The Goshen Quarterback Club played host to the first annual Fan day for the Goshen High School Eagles Saturday, an event that was considered successful by many.

“We had a real good turnout,” said head coach Bart Snyder. “We had a whole lot of fans come out. It was just a fantastic event.”

Quarterback Club president Adam Register agreed.

“For our first time, we had a pretty good crowd,” Register said. “We raised money coming in the gate and at concessions, so we did real well.”

Snyder said the event gave the team an opportunity to be put on display.

“The kids were very excited about it,” Snyder said. “They were happy about being brought out in front of the community and being made to feel special, which they are. It was a great way to get the community involved with this team. The quarterback club came up with this and it was just meant to build morale in the football team, and I think it certainly did that.”

While Fan Day was considered a success, there are some things that both Snyder and Register hope to see change.

“There are definitely some things that we would have changed if we could have,” Snyder said. “Hopefully in the future, we can include all the sports. We want to include not just football, but everybody.”

Register said he hoped to include younger football players in the future,

“The biggest thing is we didn’t have as much involvement as we probably should have, being it was short notice,” Register said. “So, next year, we really want to get our little guys in the pee wee program out.”

Due to the success of the first fan day, the opportunity to make improvements is one that should be available.

“This was our first annual fan day, with the key word there being ‘annual’, so we certainly hope to continue this in future years and be able to make the improvements that we need to make,” Snyder said.
