Genoa, Illinois athletes are known as the Cogs. Their mascot is a cog wheel but 'Cogs' originally stood for Community Of Genoa Schools.

YSU won four I-AA National Championships in 1991, 1993, 1994 and 1997, as well as runner-up titles in 1992 and 1999.

They did this under former head coach Jim Tressel. Tressel, who left the university following the 2000 season to coach at Ohio State.

Do you remember Ron Jaworski?

The team name for the school I went to my year on Guam was the Friars. One of our opponents was the Geckos.
