TRIBUTE TO MITCH MUSTAIN -- (Senate - February 09, 2006)
Mr. PRYOR. Mr. President, it is with the greatest pleasure that I rise today to honor an outstanding student athlete from Springdale, AR, Mitch Mustain. As I am sure many of you know, Mitch was named the 2005 Gatorade National High School Football Player of the Year and the Player of the Year on Parade Magazine's 43rd annual All-America High School Football Team. He received these awards not only for his outstanding leadership and athletic skill but also for his academic achievements and overall character.
During the 2005 season, senior quarterback Mitch Mustain led Springdale High School to a No. 2 national ranking and the State Class 5A title. He completed 190 passes for 3,817 yards and 47 touchdowns. He also rushed for seven scores and was sacked only twice. In the school's 54 to 20 state final win, Mitch connected on 17 passes for 5 touchdowns.
I also take this opportunity to say how proud and excited I am that Mitch Mustain has signed with my alma mater, the University of Arkansas. I foresee great things ahead for the Razorbacks.
Mr. President, I ask my colleagues to join me today in ``Calling the Hogs'' in recognition of this future Razorback's outstanding accomplishments. We all look forward to following Mitch's career and anticipate that he will make lasting contributions to his team and to the University of Arkansas.
