From the Press Democrat. There is nothing terribly unique here. Azur Ingrassia, now a senior at El Molino High School in Forestville, grew up playing football. He knows push-ups, he knows laps on the track, he knows group workouts. But this isn’t football. The football team is one field over. These days, Ingrassia works out with the Lions’ cheerleading squad. Click the title above for more info.
