Washington, DC — U.S. Representative Randy Hultgren (IL-14) delivered a statement on the House floor congratulating Don Davidson’s 50 years of basketball coaching and teaching at local 14th District schools.
Following are Rep. Hultgren’s prepared remarks:
I rise to congratulate Don Davidson for 50 years of teaching and coaching at Yorkville High School, Aurora Christian and Parkview Christian Academy.
His ability to inspire and energize his students of all ages has led them to hundreds of victories on the basketball court, earning him a place in the Illinois Basketball Coaches Association Hall of Fame.
Not only does Don hold the second-longest home winning streak in Illinois history, with 80 wins from February 1988 to February 1997 but his exceptional coaching has secured 677 career varsity wins, 10 IHSA Regional Titles, 5 IHSA Sectional Titles and 3 ACSI Great Lakes Championships.
More importantly, Don is a generous, compassionate mentor who cares deeply about the lives of his students off the court.
Don—thank you for your 50 years of service to our community and, most importantly, for embodying the life of Christ to your students and to their parents like me.
