WARREN, OH- He’s one of the many features of the future for Coach Bayuk and the Eagles, and he’s earned a starting spot in the high-octane offense that is Warren JFK.
When senior Christian Marantis was out with an injury, Coach Bayuk gave a QB by Committee look to the opponents with one being Cam Hollobaugh, and the other being a sophomore standout, Mike “The Iceman” Mauro.
Mauro like many on the roster is a variable that the coaching staff can count on to fill in at several different positions and stay confident that wherever he’s placed, he’ll be an impact player. Mauro is a nightmare for the opposition both on and off the field. The Iceman gives coaches fits with his ability to be all over the field and Hemi-like motor that never stops. Meanwhile, defenders are left laying in wonder when Mauro totes the rock- an up-back with a thunder-like momentum that makes defenses quiver. Literally, there was a play this year that Mauro practically ran through his jersey and has since forced the semi-retirement of his home “16” uniform in the place of his injured teammate’s number 22 (which is a cool story in its own right.)
We were able to do what many can’t, and that is contain Mauro for a few minutes. For this week’s Warren JFK Player Profile we give you: TO MAURO’S FORECAST; THUNDER AND ICE.
