The Falcon football team was honored at the Monday, December 16 Lake County Commission meeting for their accomplishment at this year’s state championships.
Coach Josh Puckett and several junior and senior players were presented with a trophy and a copy of a proclamation declaring December 16 a day in honor of the 2019 state champions.
“Team members, you’ve been such a blessing to our county,” Mayor Denny Johnson said.
The players enjoyed cake and a celebration with the commissioners and other community members present.
The football team has also been invited to Nashville to the senate floor, where Governor Bill Lee plans to read a proclamation in honor of the team.
Before the celebration, commissioners discussed a few housekeeping items.
Commissioners voted to pass a resolution encouraging TennCare to reimburse ground ambulances at the same rate as other modes of emergency transportation.
