On August 1st the Pearland Rotary hosted the Annual Grid Iron Luncheon on August, 1st.  The Grid Iron Luncheon is considered an signal to the beginning of High School Football to area fans.  The event featured area High School Head Coaches taking to the podium to highlight the inspiring abilities of their programs and their prospects for the 2017 season. 
 
The audience of over sixty business leaders and high school football fans were even treated to some light banter between the head coaches all ready to settle all difference on the Grid Iron.   Coaches that took the podium were Eric Wells (Dawson Eagles), Brad Butler (Shadow Creek Sharks), Mike Norman (Dobie Longhorns), Mike Allison (Clear Brook Wolverines) and James Farmer (Pearland Oilers).  With the recent retirement of log-time Pearland High Coach Tony Heath it was certainly recognized that many of these coaches sprout from Heaths' coaching tree.

The Pearland Rotary Club's Annual Grid Iron Luncheon held on August 4th at Golfcrest Country Club in Pearland was a tremendous success. Coaches from seven of the area high schools spoke for a few minutes about their football programs and made their prognostications about the upcoming season.
