As you may have heard, there’s a pandemic sweeping the globe that has put a hold on many large gatherings, possibly including our famous and infamous, glamorous and trashy, forever hilarious Gridiron show and fundraiser.
Board members are still debating how to move forward, but the annual SNL-style show will likely not appear this year — at least, not in it’s usual form.
Stay tuned for more details to come!

Well, it’s over for another year. The semi-intrepid journalists of San Antonio, past and present, had another successful (or so we told them) performance, thanks to our wonderful sponsors, volunteers and everyone who bought a ticket and attended the preview show on Friday, Oct. 11, and the real deal on Saturday, Oct. 12, at Texas A&M University San Antonio’s theater.
It was a boisterous spoof of local, state and national politicians and news events. Our volunteer cast risked their reputations — and suffered a few bruises (no broken bones this year) — in raising several thousand dollars for student journalists.
We are are very grateful to everyone who helped us put on this show, but particularly our gold sponsors: Scholz & Friends, WellMed, H-E-B, Texas A&M University San Antonio and the San Antonio Express-News.
There was a page full of credits in our program — it takes a lot of hard-working people to put on Gridiron — but here are three deserving of special note: Director/Choreographer Francisco Saucedo Jr. and Executive Producers Nora López and David Elizondo.

Over the years, SPJSA has awarded tens of thousands of dollars to scores of college students and our wonderful, long-suffering audiences have been the reason.
