Mr. LYNCH. Mr. Speaker, today I rise to honor and congratulate the
administration, coaches and players of the Cohasset High School
football team. On December 6, 2014, the Skippers won the Massachusetts
Interscholastic Athletic Association Division VI Super Bowl, earning
them the title, State Champions.
Cohasset High School has a long tradition of excellence in high school football. In 1957, the CHS football team went undefeated with a 9-0 record. CHS has won eight South Shore League championships since then, but 2014 is the school's first state championship.
The 2014 team finished the season this year by winning ten consecutive games, including five hard-fought victories in the MIAA Tournament. This historic playoff run included a 35-3 victory over the previously undefeated Nantucket Whalers, a 28-7 victory over the Mayflower League Champion Bishop Connolly Cougars, a 20-7 victory over the Tri-Valley League Champion Millis Mohawks, a 35-6 victory over the Catholic Conference Champion Cathedral Panthers, and the 35-22 Super Bowl victory over the Littleton Tigers.
Mr. Speaker, the young men on this football team conducted themselves in such a way as to bring honor, pride and recognition to the Town of Cohasset. They represent what is truly best about high school student athletes. Today, it is my honor to join with the families, friends and residents of Cohasset, Massachusetts, to congratulate the Cohasset High School football team on their historic achievement.
