Congressman Jim McDermott, Working Hard for Washington's 7th Congressional District

Here is House Resolution 26 of the 109th Congress. Sponsored by my Congressional Representative, Jim McDermott of Seattle.

RESOLUTION
Congratulating the Downers Grove North High School Trojan football team and the students and fans of Downers Grove North High School on their outstanding sportsmanship and on winning the 2004 Illinois Class 8A Football State Championship.

Whereas on November 27, 2004, in front of a crowd of more than 11,000 at the University of Illinois' Memorial Stadium in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois, the Downers Grove North Trojans defeated the Maine South Hawks 33-13 to win the 2004 Illinois Class 8A Football State Championship;

Whereas the State championship was the first for Downers Grove North's football team, and was the first State championship for any male sports team in the school's history; and

Whereas the Trojans used a good defense and a running-based, ball-control offense to defeat their opponents throughout the playoffs, and held Maine South 30 points below its season average in the championship game: Now, therefore, be it


Resolved, That the House of Representatives congratulates the Downers Grove North Trojan football team and the students and fans of Downers Grove North High School on their outstanding sportsmanship and on winning the 2004 Illinois Class 8A Football State Championship.
In addition to celebrating Illinois high school football, Representative McDermott is also busy praising the Seattle Storm, Ichiro Suzuki, Apollo Ono, helping the victims of hurricane Katrina, which last time I checked, did no damage to his district, making sure the 7th is safe from depleted uranium and of course, his all time favorite subject, helping... wait for it... AFRICA... which last time I checked is not in the 7th Congressional district.
