  • Welcome to Guilford High School Football sponsored by the Touchdown Club.    MONTHLY MEMBERSHIP MEETING TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 10, 2019 @ 6:00 PM ROOM D-102 @ GHS.
2019 Advertising Yearbook Campaign

Welcome to the beginning of the 2019 football season!  Although summer has just started, the team has been hard at work, already into their conditioning sessions and summer training camps.  Meanwhile, the Touchdown Club has begun organizing the 2019 Advertising Yearbook Campaign.  As a reminder, this fundraising initiative is the largest single promotion the TDC supports and it raises the most funds for the team! 

This is just like any other yearbook: it contains memory pages for the players plus well-wishes from family members.  However, this book also benefits the community through the distribution of business advertising.  And 100% of the profit is put right back into the TDC after printing costs are satisfied.  The main features of the book include:

  • Individual player pictures arranged by class, including name, position and jersey number
  • Stock pictures from prior seasons
  • Business advertising which allows local establishments to submit ads, including offers of discounts, available during the entire football season
  • Family ads celebrating football accomplishments and wishing players good luck for the upcoming season

Samples from the 2018 Advertising Yearbook:


This year we are excited to announce three new ad templates, which can be personalized, each for $25, so there’s an option for every budget!  



Advertising pricing for single advertisers (businesses, players/families and individuals) are as follows:      

  • Guilford “G” - $25.00      (round – one of three options to choose from) 
  • Business card ad - $50.00 (3.5 x 2.0
  • Quarter page ad - $75.00  (3.5 x 4.75)
  • Half page ad - $100.00     (7.5 x 4.75)
  • Full page ad - $200.00      (7.5 x 10.0)

All single advertisers will receive one copy of the printed book for each ad they pay for.

  • All ads will be printed in color unless the ad is submitted in black and white
  • Only copy-ready material/photos will be accepted
  • Ads will be produced exactly as they are submitted (we do not provide editing/ formatting)
  • Payment must be submitted before an ad is sent to the printer
  • Final ad copy will then be reviewed by the TDC and approved for printing
  • The TDC is not responsible for copy errors or omissions
  • Refunds are only permitted if an error/omission was the result of the TDC or vendor
  • Submit ad copy to
    • The subject line: GHS Ad Book
  • Please follow instructions for ordering through the online store at guilfordfootball.com

***When selecting a Guilford G as your ad choice, PAY FOR THE AD FIRST in the online store.  Once you receive the email receipt, take a screen shot OR use the "snipping tool" and copy the description of the ad and include that in the body of your email to Minuteman Press.   

The online store is open through 08/31/19.  Ad books for players/families and individuals will be distributed during the first home game, scheduled for 09/20/19.  

For businesses, the TDC will be delivering the books.

Touchdown Club Sponsorship Request

An Open Request to Guilford High School Football Alumni, Sports Enthusiasts and the Community …

Dear Friends:

I am sure you have a story and many memories about Guilford High School Football!  From participating on the grid-iron with pride as a Guilford Indian, or being a cheerleader or fan.  From the small, former legacy school to the new, state-of-the-art campus that now stands tall on the same site where you studied many years ago – our sports program now needs to be upgraded as well! 

The last 4 years have seen significant challenges in the football program, from coaching changes to a reduced budget, and we need your help!  I want to be practical and talk about the staggering costs of running a successful program for our team.  The small budget provided by GHS must be subsidized to cover the costs of coaching stipends, transportation, operating the concession stand, physical weight training instruction, football camps, and scholarships for senior players and end-of-year celebrations.

I’m sure you have stories about the good times you had at GHS and about the impact that football has had on your life.  If you experienced great times at GHS, if it made a difference in your life, if you want your alma mater to succeed, if you understand the challenges as outlined above and the successes we have achieved regardless of those challenges, and if you have not given back, what is it that stops you from donating to the Touchdown Club to ensure the future success of the program? What is it that stops you from donating to students who are following in your footsteps, trying to make a positive impact on the program, making a name for themselves and the town, and setting the stage for the Guilford Youth Football program who will one day, be practicing the same drills from the high school playbook?

Imagine if 100 people and businesses stepped up and contributed $100 or more. I know we have that capability. I know we have that many alumni and community members who feel strongly about their town, their time on the grid-iron and the positive impact being a Guilford Indian has had on their lives.

Please make a difference this year!  Your contributions directly affect our players and the program.  You can easily donate on the football website, in the online store, or send a check (payable to the Guilford Touchdown Club) to 800 Village Walk, #188, Guilford, CT, 06437.  Every dollar counts so any level of donation is appreciated and will make a difference!  


I would like to take this time to ask you to consider the following sponsorship packages to assist us in offsetting the larger costs mentioned above; all packages can be purchased in the online store.  You can be supportive in four unique ways:

Alumni / Business Partner Package - $750

·       Full-page advertisement in the 2019 Football Advertising Yearbook

·       Honorable mention during pre-game announcements at all home games

·       Advertisements at the 2019 Year-End Players Banquet


Town Pride Package - $500

·       Half-Page advertisement in the 2019 Football Advertising Yearbook

·       Honorable mention during pre-game announcements at all home games


Sports Sponsor - $300

·       Quarter-page advertisement in the 2019 Football Advertising Yearbook

·       Honorable mention during pre-game announcements at all home games


Super Fan - $100

·       4 tickets to the team car wash @ Palumbo’s Automotive, Guilford

·       Scheduled for 08/10/19 (weather permitting)


Please contact any member of the GHS Football Touchdown Club and thank you in advance for your continued support!

Guilford Football Touchdown Club

The Touchdown Club Mission Statement:

The mission of the GHS Touchdown Club is to support the coaching staff, players and football community in achieving athletic excellence on and off the field while providing a mechanism to raise funds and instill a sense of public camaraderie that results in finanial and emotional sponsorship to GHS football. These volunteer efforts strive to compliment a positive and motivational environment that encourages growth, pride and excellence in Guilford sports.

Please consider offering your help and support to raise much needed funds, which subsidize the costs associated with a successful team; we also help to plan events, staff and operate the concession stand, coordinate resources such as athletic camps, scholorships, physical training, plan end of season celebrations, keep consistent communication between the coaching staff and the team, as well as support our children.

The Touchdown Club meets the second Tuesday of every month at 6:00 p.m at Guilford High School.

Although GHS is not a "pay to play" district, the TDC exists to coordinate several fundraising events throughout the year to help off-set the costs associated with running a successful team and club that is not covered by the school.
