Chagrin has had a rich history in football dating back to 1898. However, it will be in 2009 that the Tigers will make its first appearance in the state title game. First Team All-Ohio quarterback Chris Trinetti would lead Chagrin to a 14-1 record that year with the only loss in the title game. Chris would garner MVP – Offensive Player of the Year honors by the Cleveland Touchdown Club, Plain Dealer “Grid Iron Hero” and first team honors in both the county and conference that year. He would finish his years at Chagrin with a 22-5 record as starting quarterback and as the record holder in several categories including career passing touchdowns (44) and career passing yards (3,831). During the Spring Chris was an accomplished midfielder on the boys lacrosse team. His 63 goals led the Tigers in scoring his senior year. Chris would also be honored as three time All-Ohio selection. After high school Chris would go on to Div. 1AA Davidson College where he earned three letters in football. He played primarily as a receiver and kick returner before his career was ended by injury and he took on a role as Assistant Offensive Coach. Chris was recognized on the Pioneer Football League Fall 2011 Academic Honor Roll.
