Baker Quarterback Club renews golf tournament

BAKER — The Baker School football team is renewing an old tradition.

The Baker Quarterback Club will host the Baker Quarterback Club Golf Tournament on June 28 at Foxwood Country Club in Crestview.

Scheduled to be on hand are Baker’s two state championship winning coaches. John Ensor, who led the Gators to championships in 1983, 1984 and 1985, will be there, as will Jeff Webb, who took Baker to the 1993 title.

Gator head football coach and athletic director Matt Brunson said in years past the golf tournament was a major fundraiser for the Baker football program, but the tournament has been dormant for several years.

Brunson, a Baker alumnus who returned to his alma mater in 2011, said the tournament was a fundraiser fixture.

“It’s the first time we’ve done it several years,” he said. “We are renewing an annual tradition as the Baker Quarterback Golf Tournament.

“We’ve got some great people with a storied playoff tradition.  With the long runs (into the playoffs) we made we always needed to make extra money and the golf tournament was one way we did that.”
