[Page H10606] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] CONGRATULATING STATE CHAMPION FOOTBALL TEAMS FROM LOUISIANA'S FIFTH DISTRICT (Mr. ABRAHAM asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.) Mr. ABRAHAM. Mr. Speaker, I rise to congratulate five State championship football teams from Louisiana's Fifth District. On December 13 and 14, the Louisiana High School Athletic Association held its State championship at the Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Ouachita Christian Eagles won the division IV State championship. The Ferriday Trojans won the class 2A State championship, and the Oak Grove Tigers won the 1A State championship. In mid-November, the Midsouth Association of Independent Schools held its high school football championships. The Riverfield Academy Raiders won the 4A championship, and Briarfield Academy won the 8-man 1A championship. These five teams have made their communities in northeast Louisiana proud. Please join me in congratulating them on a job well done. ____________________
