Winning a state championship in high school football in Georgia is an incredibly difficult task.
Blessed Trinity Catholic High School of Roswell did that in December, defeating Marist 16-7 in the Class AAAA title game.
The team was honored by the Georgia State Senate last month, but on Thursday, the Titans got a shout out in the United State Capitol. Karen Handel, the House Representative for Georgia’s 6th Congressional District, congratulated the team in a short speech on the House floor around 10:12 a.m.
Handel said she visited Blessed Trinity last week as part of Catholic Schools Week. She said she visited with students studying government, arts, science, technology and math.Handel, who has an office on Mill Street in Roswell, succeeded Tom Price as the 6th District representative when she defeated Democrat Jon Ossoff in an election last June.
Blessed Trinity ended its 2017 campaign on a six-game winning streak.
The offense was led by the rushing attack of Elijah Green and Steele Chambers, who each ran for more than 1,300 yards, according to MaxPreps. Receiver Ryan Davis also tallied 1,712 all-purpose yards. On defense, Jr Bivens and Jake Rudolph combined for 170 tackles, 12 sacks and five forced and recovered fumbles.
