Mr. Speaker, I rise today to congratulate the Richland Springs Coyotes on an outstanding 2011 football season. On December 9, 2011, the Coyotes won the Class A, 6-man Division II State Championship with a dominant 76-28 performance over the Motley County Matadors.
The victory capped a perfect season, where 14 of the Coyotes' opponents were subjected to the 45-point mercy rule--the Matadors were no exception. This stellar performance earned the Coyotes their second consecutive state championship.
I want to congratulate the team on their work ethic--domination on the grid-iron does not come easy.
As well as the young men on the team, I want to recognize Coach Jerry Burkhart for putting together a football program of unparalleled success. In the 124 games played under his leadership, you can count all the losses on one hand! Incredible.
I encourage the team and the coaches to enjoy this moment to the utmost. It is my honor to represent Richland Springs and their outstanding football program. Again, I congratulate the Coyotes on a perfect season and a state championship.
