The Quarterback Club

Serving South Portland High School Athletics Since 1951

The Quarterback Club has supported the athletic program at South Portland High School for 60 plus years.  The club was founded in 1950 by individuals interested in promoting all athletics at the high school with money earned through concession sales.  Over the years, as new programs have been added, the club has made a concerted effort to donate over time to all teams.  The Quarterback Club’s donations often go toward larger items that benefit a wide range of athletes and target items that may not otherwise be covered by the athletic budget.

The Quarterback Club has built and equipped three concession stands in the past 60 years.  The first, a wooden structure, was built at what is now Mahoney Middle School field when SPHS was located there.  The second, a cinderblock structure, was built at Martin Field in 1965 when athletic events were moved to that site.  The present stand, a $45,000 structure located at Martin Field, was built and equipped in 2002-2003.  The Quarterback Club is operated and run by volunteers.  The club is always looking for volunteers to assist with concessions.  If you’re interested, please contact the athletic office at 767-7705.
