Mister Speaker, I rise today to recognize Freedom High School of Woodbridge, Virginia for winning its second-straight Virginia Class Six state football title.

Last Saturday, Freedom defeated Highland Springs in a hard-fought championship game. The Eagles won by a score of 42 to 34 to claim the title — making them the first Prince William County high school to win back-to-back state titles since 1999.

This win capped off an undefeated season for Freedom, and the Eagles extended their winning streak to an incredible 29 games.

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.

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.

I yield back.
