    DAVIS of illinois in the house of representatives Thursday, January 22, 2015 Mr. RODNEY DAVIS of Illinois. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to congratulate the 2014-2015 Illinois State University football team on an outstanding season.

    The Redbirds made it to the FCS National Championship game for the first time in school history.

    While they ultimately fell short with a heart wrenching 37 seconds to go, they made us very proud.

    The team captured their first conference title since 1999 and broke 16 school records. Those included most points in a season, total offense, rushing touchdowns, passing touchdowns, and most wins in a season.

    A number of individual Redbirds also received Missouri Valley Football Conference recognition. Head coach Brock Spack was named Coach of the Year, Marshaun Coprich was named Offensive Player of the Year, and Tre Roberson was named Newcomer of the Year.

    As a future Illinois State University Redbird dad, I look forward to the opportunity to watch these young players continue in their careers.

    Bloomington-Normal and all of Illinois are proud of the effort the team put forth this season. We look forward to their success next year. Go Birds! ____________________
