    ROGERS of alabama in the house of representatives Tuesday, December 8, 2015 Mr. ROGERS of Alabama. Mr. Speaker, I ask for the House's attention today to congratulate the Piedmont High School football team on their state championship win in the 3A class.

    The Piedmont Bulldogs defeated the Bayside Academy Admirals 44-7, on December 3 at the Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

    Taylor Hayes, Piedmont quarterback, and Darnell Jackson, running back, were the standout players of the game with a combined 124 yards on 18 carries and four touchdowns between them. Hayes also made the play of the game, with a 48-yard touchdown run in the second quarter.

    Piedmont's coach Steve Smith said, ``Our kids played their best football when it mattered the most--at the end of the year.'' This victory marks the second state football title in the school's history, and set school records for wins in a season as well as points scored.

    Mr. Speaker, please join me in congratulating Piedmont High School on their achievement. Go Bulldogs.
