[Extensions of Remarks] [Page E2525] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] CONGRATULATIONS TO SUNNYSIDE HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL TEAM OF TUCSON, ARIZONA ______ HON. RAUL M. GRIJALVA of arizona in the house of representatives Monday, December 8, 2003 Mr. GRIJALVA. Mr. Speaker, I rise today in honor of true champions. I am proud to report that on Saturday. December 6th, 2003, the Sunnyside High School football team of Tucson, Arizona once again brought home the Class 4A State Title. For the second time in three years, the Blue Devils showcased to the state of Arizona their unmatched talent, heart, and dedication. In a 21-13 victory over Glendale Cactus, Sunnyside overcame a roster depleted by injury and what the papers called ``undersized'' players. Mr. Speaker, it's true that the Blue Devils have linemen whose physical stature is smaller than the average. But, as was proved in this past weekend's state championship game, physical size doesn't matter when you have the drive and the hunger for victory that these players do. Under bright stadium lights, under tremendous pressure and expectation, and with a defensive line outweighed by an average of 70 pounds, the Sunnyside Blue Devils came home victorious. I commend these students and their coaching staff. Their fine efforts have made my hometown, and moreover, my alma mater proud. I wish them the best as they enjoy their victory and begin to look toward next year's winning season. ____________________
