TO RECOGNIZE AND COMMEND THE MYRTLE BEACH HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL TEAM FOR ITS OUTSTANDING SEASON AND FOR CAPTURING THE 2008 CLASS AAA STATE CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE, AND TO HONOR THE TEAM'S EXCEPTIONAL PLAYERS, COACHES, AND STAFF.
Whereas, well prepared for the challenge, the Myrtle Beach High School football team crowned an outstanding 14-1 season by capturing the 2008 Class AAA State Championship title, defeating Chester 31-21 on Saturday, December 6, 2008; and
Whereas, excitement over this title win was especially intense because, although it was the school's fifth state football championship, it marked the first time since 1984 that the Seahawks had been able to capture the title; and
Whereas, the Seahawks did not disappoint fans, rushing for 190 yards and throwing for 231 yards in one of their most complete offensive efforts of the year; and
Whereas, the championship game demonstrated Myrtle Beach's top-drawer strength, agility, and skill, and was a finely tuned team effort, combined with good sportsmanship; and
Whereas, using these talents and attributes, the team, under the capable leadership of Head Coach Scott Earley and his assistants, showed fans and foes alike that the Seahawks' championship victory was no accident; and
Whereas, the House of Representatives takes great pleasure in recognizing the young men of the Myrtle Beach High School football team for leading with excellence both in the classroom and on the football field and expects to hear of continued great achievements in the years ahead. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:
That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, recognize and commend the Myrtle Beach High School football team for its outstanding season and for capturing the 2008 Class AAA State Championship title, and honor the team's exceptional players, coaches, and staff.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Principal Nona Kerr and Head Coach Scott Earley, of Myrtle Beach High School.
