So. Much. Talent. Aurora’s state football championship drought is just shy of a decade (Grandview won the city’s last state crown in 2007), but the city consistently is chalk full of much of the best grid talent in Colorado as evidenced again in 2016. A total of 104 Aurora players earned all-league first or second team honors and found their way onto various spots on the 2016 Aurora Sentinel All-Aurora Football Team, which was selected by the Sentinel in conjunction with balloting of city coaches.


Former Overland football coaching legend Tony Manfredi is set to be inducted into the Colorado High School Coaches Association Hall of Fame. The organization announced the five members of the 2017 Hall of Fame class — its 54th class of inductees — and it included Manfredi, who spent nearly three decades as head coach of the Trailblazers.
