The IRON CHEF, Steve Mortillo, adds his amazing herbs and spices to
about half a cow.  Mortillo is also a Master with Vegan and Vegetarian dishes.
Marlissa Grogan

The amazing Marine Captain, Marlissa Grogan, is the Treasurer on the
BASE TOUR, and she really protects the bottom line, because she was also
on the Fundraising Team, w/ Susie Husted.
NOTICE:  When Marlissa takes a snap, and does her 5 step drop, while hollering
"GO LONG", she'll pump-fake with the pigskin, then unleash a 45 yard perfect spiral
to her intended receiver !
BEWARE:  Don't get your feelings hurt, fellas, she's quite capable of kicking butt !
