Chagrin Falls (13-2, D-IV State Runner-Up)
* Players to Watch – OL Sam Gardner (6-0, 205, Sr.), OL Mike Tozzi (6-2, 225, Sr.), RB Jack Campbell (5-10, 190, Jr.), QB Tommy Iammarino (5-11, 195, Jr.), RB/DB Bradley Munday (5-8, 155, Jr.), WR Mike Hageman (6-5, 205, Sr.), WR Anthony DeCamillo (6-1, 200, Sr.), LB Kurt Vidmer (6-0, 205, Sr.), DB Everett Dishong (6-0, 195, Sr.), LB Andrew Winkleman (6-2, 200, Sr.)
* Outlook – The Tigers are suddenly a legit football power and they’re nowhere near done making noise. The question is can they make that noise in D-III. Chagrin Falls has been to two straight D-IV state championship games. Head coach Mark Iammarino (119-59 in 17 years) welcomes back six starters on offense and five on defense, including the team’s top four tacklers (Vidmer, Dishong, Campbell, Winkelman). Although all three LBs are back, the DL is an area of concern as all 4 positions must be replaced. Offensively, Campbell was the team’s leading rusher (696 yards and five TDs) last year, and Vidmer (10 TDs) played a huge part in short yardage packages. Returning QB Tommy Iammarino welcomes back three seasoned receivers (Munday, DeCamillo, Hageman) as well.
