Food: Gyro George

Family owned and now spotlighted!

CLEVELAND, OH (TM216) — Roar up those engines and roar up those friers, we’re making a food truck stop with this week’s spotlight.

Gyro George has been in business for more than two decades and continues to bring authentic greek food to the people of Cleveland.

Catching up with the daughter of George, Vungelia Glyptis, it is easy to see there is a passion for both family and food

“It’s been really special to have my own parents as my mentors for my entire life, and to see the sacrifices they’ve made for my sister and I to have a good upbringing.” Vungelia said, as work began to wind down for the day.

The business is still rolling, more than two decades after it’s creation, and still bringing authentic greek food to the 216. [interview at bottom of article]

People: St. Ignatius Football Preview 17′

Wildcats eye redemption following 2016 state runner-up finish.

CLEVELAND, OH (TM216) — It’s been said that nothing motivates victory as much as loss. If that holds true, St. Ignatius is poised for a historic season following a double overtime loss in last season’s state championship game.

It’s one more go for the senior class of 2017. As Mark Bobinski enters the season of dreams he has had no shortage of success already written on the historic Wildcats legacy. At just 5’9″ Bibinski wracked up a total of 1,157 yards in his junior season, accounting for 20 rushing touchdowns.

That thousand yard rusher will serve as captain along side the anchor of his offensive line, Darian Kinnard. Another highly recruited talent for both his size (6’6″ 315 lbs) and skill. Ranked as a 4-star recruit, Kinnard has already received 17 Division 1 scholarship offers leading to his commitment to the University of Kentucky.

In the secondary, Ignatius returns another D1 commit in Justin Sands. An Ivey League student athlete that recently committed to Pennsylvania University, Sands will be joined by Cam Toppin, Matt Viancourt and Connor Kennedy in the secondary. Leaving the Wildcats with one of the most highly recruited defenses in the state.

Week one offers a rare opportunity for the Wildcats, the chance to defeat a team that they currently hold zero wins over, Archbishop Hoban. The Knights lead the series (1-0).

Overall, it is a typical all star level schedule for Ignatius. Three state champion finalists are scheduled including the Knights, St. Xavier Bombers, and Detroit Central Catholic Shamrocks.

The 2017 season opens up Thursday, August 24, at Archbishop Hoban.

2017 Schedule: 

8/24/2017 @ Archbishop Hoban (Thursday) 7:00pm
