SEWELL of Alabama asked and was given permission to address the
House for 1 minute.)
Ms. SEWELL of Alabama. Mr. Speaker, I rise today with Congressman
Robert Aderholt, as well as with the rest of the Alabama delegation, to
congratulate Coach Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide for a tremendous
victory last night in the NCAA National Football Championship.
What can I say? Roll Tide.
The win represents the 16th National Football Championship for the Crimson Tide and the fourth national title in 7 years under the leadership of Coach Nick Saban. What an awesome record.
The State of Alabama and its delegation are extremely proud of the talented football players, coaches, students, and fans. From Heisman Trophy winner Derrick Henry, quarterback Jake Coker, and the tremendous 95-yard run of Kenyan Drake, all of the players--the entire 2015 team-- deserve our applause and congratulations. This team will join the annals of Tide history as one of the 16 national championship teams. What an honor.
We also acknowledge the Clemson University Tigers for a great season and a great championship game last night.
I want to personally acknowledge Representative Jeff Duncan and his staff for the friendly wager and the spirited banter on social media. I know that Congressman Duncan will look great on the Capitol steps in the Bear Bryant houndstooth hat and in the University of Alabama tie. Now bring on that South Carolina barbecue.
Once again, we, the Alabama delegation, stand here today with slight humility and great pride to congratulate the Crimson Tide of the University of Alabama as the 2015 National Football Champion.
What do we say collectively? Roll Tide.
