Rep. Butler, Illinois House Honors Football Champion Rochester Rockets

The 2016 IHSA Class 4A Champion Rochester Rockets Football team and coaches this week were recognized for their achievements by the Illinois House of Representatives. House members unanimously adopted State Representatives Tim Butler and Sue Scherer’s House Resolution 17 outlining the team’s road to victory, and congratulating athletes and coaches on their outstanding championship season.

“Last year’s victory marks the Rockets’ sixth Class 4A football championship in seven seasons – a tremendous achievement,” said Rep. Butler. “I was proud to welcome these young men and their coaches to the Capitol and to recognize their hard work and dedication.”

The Rockets’ sixth state championship puts them just two behind East St. Louis and Wheaton Warrenville South for the statewide lead for a public school.
