    A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION congratulating the Lafayette Central Catholic Junior-Senior High School football team on winning the Class A State Championship.

    Whereas, After a grueling season during which they were ranked second place, the Lafayette Central Catholic Knights clinched the Class A State Football championship;

    Whereas, This win marks the fourth straight year that the Knights finished their season with a state championship victory, ranking the team second overall in Indiana football history. This feat is exceptionally meaningful for the seniors who have now won the state championship all four years of their high school football careers;

     Whereas, In winning the championship, the Lafayette Central Catholic Knights relied on its defense and special teams. The Knights held the Crusaders to only 165 offensive yards and zero points while tallying the only points of the game, an offensive touchdown and a punt return, sealing the 14-0 victory;

    Whereas, This game situation was nothing new to the Knights as the team faced the Crusaders in the state championship game last year as well. The Knights were then as they are now-victorious;


    Whereas, Jimmy Mills, while contributing to his team, set himself apart for his work as an individual. He was named the winner of the Phil N. Eskew Mental Attitude Award, an award given to a senior who best demonstrates excellence in mental attitude, scholarship, leadership, and athletic ability;
        
    Whereas, Another outstanding individual is Coach Kevin O'Shea, whose guidance has led the Knights to four consecutive state titles, the first coach in Indiana to do so. Over his five season career, Coach O'Shea has a phenomenal 68-3 record;

    Whereas, The Lafayette Central Catholic football team has shown that through hard work, commitment, and dedication, they have remained dominant in Class A football; and

    Whereas, The Lafayette Central Catholic Knights have asserted themselves as a force to be reckoned with. We congratulate the team on their state championship and wish them luck in the future: Therefore,



Be it resolved by the Senate     of the General Assembly

of the State of Indiana, the House of Representatives     concurring:


    SECTION 1. That the Indiana General Assembly congratulates the Lafayette Central Catholic High School on clinching the Class A State Football Championship.
    SECTION 2. The Secretary of the Senate is hereby directed to transmit a copy of this Resolution to Coach Kevin O'Shea and Athletic Director Tim Bordenet.
