Grande marshall

​Main Street Port Clinton Walleye Festival’s distinguished 2015 Grand Marshall is the Port Clinton Fullbackers. Each Year, Main Street Port Clinton recognizes an individual or organization at the Walleye Festival who has made a positive impact on the Port Clinton Community. 
The Port Clinton Fullbackers Club is a non-profit entity dedicated to supporting ALL levels of Redskins Football from community flag and pee-wee programs through our high school varsity program.  Their moto is "One Program-One Voice-One Goal" and their mission is "To unify, support and advance Port Clinton Football at all levels through community awareness, facility improvement and fundraising, to ensure the competitive longevity of the program."
The renovation of Port Clinton’s True Lay Stadium began in March and will benefit student athletes in Football, Soccer, and Track.  The Port Clinton Athletic Complex Association and Port Clinton Fullbacker’s have been working diligently to raise funds through donations and sponsorships.  While fundraising efforts continue, they are close enough to the goal to begin this outstanding project - once again thanks to our supportive community.  This project complements our new school buildings, and provides athletic and healthy lifestyle opportunities for our children and the people in our community who care for them.
