The 33 Touchdown Club is a 501(c)(3) charity organization that provides those with a passion for football the opportunity to give back to the game that has been such an integral part of their lives. There are three main ways in which the 33 Touchdown Club contributes to the community. First, the club gives back by honoring local football legends that have helped promote, and in many cases, have helped shape the game. Second, the 33 Touchdown Club provides financial assistance to aspiring collegiate football players looking to continue their playing careers after high school and to members of the football community in need. Third, the club expands the football family through social and networking events.
Since its founding in 2005, the membership has exploded from 6 members to over 400. This rapid growth was achieved strictly through word-of-mouth. The club gathers several times each year to give members a chance to socialize with old and new friends in addition to raising money to support deserving scholar athletes. The common thread among the members is their love for football. The membership consists of former players, coaches, officials, and managers with experience at the professional, collegiate, and high school levels. Current membership represents forty-eight colleges. The club continues to explore ways to contribute to the football community.

2014 Huddle and Scholarship Night
The 33 Touchdown Club is proud to announce that the 2014 Huddle and Scholarship Night will be held on Thursday, May 29th at 6 p.m. at the Pavilion at the Newton Marriott. We have an exciting program planned that will feature the following:
- Presentation of the Jack Driscoll Award to Joe Andruzzi and Donation to the Joe Andruzzi Foundation - Joe is a true inspiration who, after a nine-year NFL career and his own personal battle with cancer, continues to give of himself. The 33 Touchdown Club will be making a donation that will be received by Joe, who will also be present to talk about the phenomenal work his foundation is doing. The Joe Andruzzi Foundation was launched on May 22, 2008. Joe and his wife Jen have spearheaded an effort that has raised more than $2.5 million and donated to more than four hundred cancer patients and families to help them through the great trials of cancer. Check out the following link for more information on the Joe Andruzzi Foundation: http://joeandruzzifoundation.org/
- Guest Speaker Mark Whipple, Head Football Coach for the University of Massachusetts - Coach Whipple will be on hand to talk about the the great spring his team just put together and the exciting changes in store for the program. In his second stint at UMass, Coach Whipple aims to continue his run of setting offensive records wherever he has gone. Prior to his last stay at UMass, he enjoyed great success at the University of New Haven and Brown University. He followed his first stint at UMass, where he led the Minutemen to the National Championship in 1998, with a successful career in the NFL and at the University of Miami. Join us for the opportunity to hear about his big plans for the program.
Stay tuned to find out who will receive the Ed Schluntz and Darryl Williams Awards. It promises to be an exciting night surrounded by great teammates, each with stories of personal gridiron glory taller than the last.
