AURELIA - The Senior Class parents and the Aurelia Kiwanis recently served breakfast to the Aurelia football team and coaches at the Aurelia Community Center, recognizing the five Aurelia senior football players - Taylor Witzel, Steve Berg, Jacob Howey, Elliott Zadow and Zach Nixon.
The entire football squad - all 19 of them - came to the 7 a.m. breakfast on Wednesday Sept. 23, during Aurelia's Homecoming Week. Also honored were the Aurelia senior cheerleaders, who served the players and coaches and then, of course, got to partake of the delicious meal themselves before going off to school.

The team returned the courtesy in spades on Friday, winning their first game of the season, 44-14 over Granville Spalding Catholic.
