Haveman welcomes championship Zeeland West football team to Capitol

State Rep. Joe Haveman today welcomed the Division 4 state champion Zeeland West High School football team to the state Capitol, introducing the team and coaches from the House floor and presenting them with a legislative tribute.

"These outstanding young men, led by a remarkable coaching and support staff, not only recorded an unblemished 14-0 season, they also defeated Marine City in the title game by a 45-7 margin," said Haveman, R-Holland. "Congratulations not only go to the players and coaches, but also to the parents of these extraordinary athletes and the loyal fans who supported the team throughout the season."

Haveman hosted the team to a luncheon in the House Office Building prior to the introduction in the House.

"Everyone associated with this championship season -- the second for the Dux in five years -- should share in the legislative tribute that was presented to them," Haveman said. "We wish the seniors on the team success as they go to future endeavors, and continued success to underclassmen, who will return to the team next year."
