  Mrs. MILLER of Michigan. Mr. Speaker, it is my distinct privilege 
today to recognize the Peck Pirates High School 8-Player Football Team. 
The Pirates had what can only be described as a perfect season. The 
young men that make up the Pirates 8-Player team displayed remarkable 
teamwork which drove their memorable season home to Sanilac County, 
keeping the 8-Player trophy in a Sanilac County School since the 
inception of the Michigan High School Athletic Association (MHSAA) 8-
Player football sport in 2010.
  The Pirates won the State Championship on November 22, 2013 with a 
decisive 67-32 win over Rapid River Rockets High School 8-Player 
Football Team, capping a perfect 13-0 season.
  This championship game showcased the Pirates skills that carried them 
through the season. Their defense took charge executing key plays with 
tackles, sacks and a big interception before halftime. Their offense 
wasted little time getting points on the board, working together to 
complete drive after drive down the field. Both in defensive battle and 
offensively, the Pirates kept constant pressure on their opponent and 
making their claim to the trophy clear.
  The Pirates proved they had the skills, teamwork and fortitude to 
rise to the challenge and accomplish their ultimate goal--a State 
Championship! I am certain the community and the entire Thumb Region 
takes great pride in what these young individuals were able to achieve 
as a team.
  Mr. Speaker, it is my pleasure to honor the hard work and 
sportsmanship displayed by all of the members of the Peck Pirates team. 
I

also wish to take a moment and acknowledge all the efforts and support 
by the coaches and parents, the cheerleaders, the school band, the 
teachers and administrators, and all of the students, fans, and 
community members who came out this season to support the Pirates. 
Together they made up a winning support system which led to an 
unforgettable season.
  In closing, Mr. Speaker, I want to offer my personal congratulations 
and best wishes. All the accolades, awards, and trophies are rightfully 
deserved. Enjoy being State Champions, Go Pirates!
