Representative Paul Tonko from New York's 20th district used his time before the house to recognize the Troy Flying horses.

"Mr. Speaker,

I rise to congratulate the Flying Horses of Troy High School (New York) football for an extraordinary achievement: winning a second consecutive New York State Public High School Athletic Association Class AA state championship.

Troy’s Flying Horses are the first team in Section 2 history to accomplish back-to-back undefeated seasons AND state championship wins.

Their 41-26 championship win this past Sunday over an impressive Lancaster Legends team showed the dedication and heart of each and every one of the players, their families, and their coach Bobby Burns.

On behalf of countless proud fans and supporters throughout New York’s Capital Region, I wish the players great success in all of their future endeavors. Their passion, dedication and sportsmanship are an inspiration to all.

Thank you.

h/t Troy City School District"

It's nice to have a local Representative talk about a happy accomplishment and something the area can be proud of.
