Independence Football Team Honored By Raleigh County Commission

The 2021 Independence High School Patriots football team was honored by the Raleigh County Commission for their exceptional season, which included 13 wins and a trip to Wheeling Island Stadium back in December to compete against the Fairmont Senior Polar Bears in the WVSSAC AA State Football Championship game.

Although the team didn’t get that championship win, they became the first ever Independence High School football team to make it to the state championship. In doing so, they made everyone at home proud of their accomplishment.

During the Tuesday, January 4, regular meeting of the Raleigh County Commission, team members were in attendance to listen as County Administrator Jay Quesenberry read a proclamation honoring their achievement.

“This is a proclamation honoring Independence High School 2021 State of West Virginia football runners-up,” Quesenberry read. “Whereas, the hard work, dedication, sportsmanship, talent and exceptional team chemistry of the 2021 Independence High School football team enabled these student-athletes to be runners-up in the state championship, and, whereas, the team brought great honor, to not only themselves, but to their school, their families and their community, and, whereas, Head Football Coach John H. Lilly and the entire coaching and support staff, team member parents, administration, faculty and student body at Independence High School were integral in guiding the team to 13 wins and one loss in the 2021 season through their unwavering support, now, therefore we the Raleigh County Commission; Dave Tolliver, commission president; Linda K. Epling, commissioner; Gregory A. Duckworth, commissioner, do hereby recognize and heartily congratulate the Independence High School Patriots on their outstanding achievement.”

“The county commission is very proud of you guys on the season that you had,” said Commission President Dave Tolliver. “It was a great season…runners-up in the state of West Virginia is not bad. Of course, obviously, everyone would have liked to have won, but you guys had a great season.”

“It is a great honor to present you guys with this proclamation,” Tolliver concluded.
