[Pages H7746-H7747] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] GOFFSTOWN HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL (Mr. GUINTA asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. GUINTA. Mr. Speaker, I rise to salute the Goffstown Grizzlies football team, a high school with just 1,000 students who have an amazing story of perseverance and achievement. Thanks to great coaching and hard work, the team qualified for a division 3 championship a few years ago and has since advanced to division 1, the toughest in the Granite State. Even their fans thought competing at this level would be a tall order. The Grizzlies are undefeated this season. They entered Saturday's playoff game ranked number one; and they got there with exciting defense and special teams blocking punts and returning kickoffs for touchdowns. The Grizzlies have the Granite State's fiercest linebacking crew and a sack leader. Their kicker boots 45-yard field goals, helping his team to average more than 42 points a game. The running back rushed for over 1,000 yards this season and scored over 20 touchdowns. They have New Hampshire's most potent passing attack and incredible local support. Their spirited fans make it easy to like the Grizzlies, who take on the Second District's North Nashua Titans this weekend. [[Page H7747]] I wish both teams well but the Grizzlies just a little bit better. ____________________
