Aurora Greenmen Football

The Greenmen drop back down to D-III where they won a state title
in 2008. Aurora’s brief D-II stint (four years) was a successful one
that’s resulted in back-to-back regional titles. All told the Greenmen
have been in the postseason eight straight times and are 84-18 over that
span. Expect the excellence to continue.

*Aurora (12-2, Region 5 Champion): The Greenmen drop back down to D-III where they won a state title in 2008. Aurora’s brief D-II stint (four years) was a successful one that’s resulted in back-to-back regional titles. All told the Greenmen have been in the postseason eight straight times and are 84-18 over that span. Expect the excellence to continue.

Head Coach Bob Mihalik won his 100th game last year and is 102-40 in 12 seasons.

“We expect to compete for a (Chagrin Valley Conference) title and a playoff berth once again,” Mihalik said. “We lost a talented senior class, but our JV team was undefeated and we return a good nucleus, which should allow us to be competitive in 2013.”

Among the key returners is senior QB George Bollas (6-4, 215) who threw for 1,355 yards and 14 TDs and ran for 1,071 yards and 16 TDs last year. He’s committed to Kent State.

Expect the senior trio of OL/DL Justin Wazbinski (6-3.275/91% grade as OL, 46 tackles, eight sacks, 5.5 FL), DB/WR/RB Kirk janoch (6-0, 175) and DL/LB/RB Romell Pollard (6-2, 200). Key juniors are LB/SS Alex Smierciak (5-10, 160) and OL/DL Brandon Zamary (6-2, 245).

The schedule includes six home games including the opening back-to-back gauntlet of Twinsburg and Ravenna. Chagrin Falls, Kenston and Weast Geauga share CVC Chagrin Division title aspirations with Aurora.
