The Northwestern Trojans received a proclamation from the State Assembly for their 15-0 state championship season.

Rep. Gary Simrill (R-Rock Hill), introduced the team, even taking jabs at his counterparts from the Goose Creek area (home to Stratford, who Northwestern defeated in the state title game).

Simrill joined Reps. Ralph Norman, John King, and Tommy Pope in congratulating the Trojans.

Northwestern ended the season with a 62-35 win over Stratford and finished with the #1 ranking in the OTS Media statewide poll as well as a #7 national ranking in the Maxpreps National Poll.
