    DELANEY of maryland in the house of representatives Thursday, December 19, 2013 Mr. DELANEY. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor Coach Todd Appel and the Fort Hill High School football team of Cumberland, Maryland, who won the Maryland Class 1A State football championship on Saturday, December 7th.

    With a 25-0 victory over Douglass High School, the Fort Hill Sentinels capped off a perfect 14-0 season. This is Fort Hill's third state football championship in their school's history and the first since 1997. Throughout the 2013 regular season and playoffs, the Sentinels dominated their opponents. In the playoffs, competing against the best teams in the state, the Sentinels outscored their opponents by an impressive 162-13 margin.

    In his sixth year as head coach, Coach Appel has compiled a 66-11 record. Throughout this success, Coach Appel has proven to be not just a great coach, but a trusted mentor to many young adults in Allegany County. Thanks to his leadership, Fort Hill student-athletes have exceled both on the field and in the classroom. I wish the Fort Hill Sentinels the best of luck next season as they defend their title.

    I ask that you and my other distinguished colleagues help me in honoring this significant accomplishment.
