Congratulating Prairie Ridge Wolves on State Championship and Undefeated Season
Washington, DC — U.S. Representative Randy Hultgren (IL-14) delivered a statement on the House floor congratulating the Prairie Ridge High School Wolves football team on winning the state championship and earning an undefeated season.
Following are Rep. Hultgren’s prepared remarks:
I rise today to congratulate the Prairie Ridge Wolves football team on their second-straight class 6A state championship.
The team repeated last year’s outstanding performance of finishing the season without losing a single game.
Beating the Nazareth Roadrunners in the state final 28-21, the team now has a 28-game winning streak—their last loss was in 2015.
The team is ranked second in the state overall by the Chicago Tribune.
Coach Chris Schremp has been a critical and central figure in their success.
A 21-year veteran at Prairie Ridge High School, he was named IHSA Football Coach of the Year, and is now competing for the national recognition.
Another crucial part of the team, quarterback Samson Evans, has also had a fantastic season.
Dubbed “Superman” for his exploits on the field, Evans was named the Chicago Sun-Times 2017 Player of the Year.
He will continue his career as an Iowa Hawkeye alongside teammate and lineman Jeff Jenkins.
Congratulations Prairie Ridge Wolves for your excellent season, and here’s to a continued undefeated winning streak.
