“As the Representative for Virginia’s Seventh District, I would like to officially congratulate Freedom High School’s players and coaches — including head coach Darryl Overton. I also want to congratulate the parents and faculty for supporting these players and student athletes and guiding them through a perfect season,” Spanberger said.

Today on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, I proudly join my colleagues in recognizing the remarkable accomplishments of the Freedom High School Eagles of Woodbridge, Virginia.”
