Mr. DELANEY. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor the Fort Hill High
School football team and Head Coach Todd Appel for winning the Maryland
Class 1A State Football Championship for the second year in a row on
Saturday, December 6th.
The Fort Hill Sentinels finished a second consecutive perfect 14-0 season with a 40-8 win against Douglass High School. The Sentinels have now won back-to-back state championships, their fourth in school history. They continued last season's dominance, outscoring their opponents 197-64.
Coach Appel has now compiled an impressive 80-11 record through seven seasons. The Sentinels started as the favorite and never looked back, sweeping the regular season and playoffs. I want to thank Coach Appel and his staff for their leadership, as well as all the student-athletes for their hard work and determination to be the best they can be both in the classroom and on the field. The Sentinels success over the last two years has brought pride to both Fort Hill High School and the local community. I also wish the Fort Hill Sentinels the best of luck as they look to win their third straight title next season.
I ask that you and my other distinguished colleagues help me in honoring this significant accomplishment.
