Raleigh Sports Club getting some big name speakers

Those who like to talk about sports and support local sports teams have been joining the Raleigh Sports Club for years now - with the club having grown from a handful of people to more than 400 today. But perhaps the biggest selling point is the wide variety of well-known speakers.

The club, which has hosted notable sports figures such as baseball hall of famer Stan Musial and basketball analyst Dick Vitale, has already lined up NC State football coach Tom O'Brien, NC State basketball coach Sidney Lowe, new ECU basketball coach and former UNC star Jeff Lebo and Duke football coach David Cutcliffe for this fall.

The club is making a pitch for UNC coaches Roy Williams and Butch Davis too. But frankly some of the best insider information they hear comes from lesser known speakers who are experts in recruiting or are sportswriters or broadcasters. They are less guarded and don't have to worry about quotes inspiring opponents.

Lunch meetings are held at Highland United Methodist Church at 1901 Ridge Road in Raleigh. For more information, go to the Raleigh Sports Club Web site. Take a look at the big names that have spoken to the club over the years by clicking here.
