Mr. SHUSTER. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to congratulate the 2015
Bishop Guilfoyle Catholic High School football team for earning its
second consecutive PIAA Class A state football championship.
Adding to its inspiring accomplishments from last season, this dedicated Marauder team, led by Coach Justin Wheeler, finished this season with a perfect 16-0 record. Even more impressive, that brings their winning streak to 32 straight games over two seasons.
By handily winning another PIAA Class A football championship this year, the team has even made regional football history by not only making it to the big game in back-to-back years but also winning it. What's more, winning more than one state football championship is something that no other team in the region can claim.
While these many notable achievements are worth highlighting, I also believe it's worth pointing out the humility and work ethic that accompanied them. Through their efforts, the Bishop Guilfoyle football team's players and coaches have displayed character and commitment worth recognizing. This team's continued success is surely another reason to be proud of where we're from.
Today I am honored to recognize the 2015 Bishop Guilfoyle football team for another state championship victory and its continuously growing list of accomplishments. I am proud of how this team has represented Central Pennsylvania and I speak for many when I say I look forward to seeing what the future holds for this program.
