AUGUSTA, GA – Former NFL Atlanta Falcons quarterbacks, June Jones and Steve Barkowski, will serve as keynote speakers at The Salvation Army’s second annual “Doing The Most Good” Dinner on Thursday, May 8th at The Salvation Army Kroc Center. The pair will also host a quarterback clinic for CSRA high school students before the event.
Coach June Jones, a former professional football player with the Atlanta Falcons, is currently the head coach for Southern Methodist University’s football program. Known for his innovation, Jones has proven that he is a master architect in building and rebuilding football programs. A winner of three National Coach of the Year awards, Jones has enjoyed a 12-year coaching career in the NFL.
Steve Bartowski was an All American football player at the University of California. In 1975, he was the first pick in the NFL draft selected by the Atlanta Falcons and was their starting quarterback for 11 seasons. He is one of only a few NFL quarterbacks to throw for 30 or more touchdowns in consecutive seasons and still holds most of the passing records for the Falcons.
June Jones and Steve Bartowski will be participating in a Kids’ Quarterback Clinic before the “Doing The Most Good” Annual Dinner on the Kroc Center field. Sponsors will be invited along with local high school quarterbacks.
