LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  honoring Tyler Rouse upon the occasion of being
named Gatorade's 2012-2013 New York Player of the Year

WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body to recognize our young
individuals, who strive for athletic  and  academic  excellence  through
rigorous training and mental and physical discipline; and
  WHEREAS, Athletic competition enhances the moral and physical develop-
ment of the young people of this State, preparing them for the future by
instilling  in  them  the  value  of teamwork, encouraging a standard of
healthy living, imparting a desire for success and developing a sense of
fair play and competition; and
  WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern and in full accord with  its  long-
standing  traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to honor and
recognize Baldwinsville High School senior Tyler Rouse upon the occasion
of being named Gatorade's 2012-2013 New  York  Football  Player  of  the
Year; and
  WHEREAS,  This  award  recognizes outstanding athletic excellence, the
high standards of academic achievement and  exemplary  character  demon-
strated  both  on and off the field, and it distinguishes Tyler Rouse as
the best high school football player in New York; and
  WHEREAS, Tyler Rouse, the first player to earn this award  from  Baker
High  School  in Baldwinsville, a 5-foot-8 tall running back, rushed for
2,977 yards and 45 touchdowns on 333 carries this past season, averaging
nine yards per carry, and leading the Baldwinsville Bees to the Class AA
Section III Finals; and
  WHEREAS, When Tyler Rouse is not on the field, he remains dedicated to
his scholastic career maintaining a B+ average, and volunteering  for  a
local youth football league as well as a local assisted living facility;
and
  WHEREAS,  Throughout  his high school athletic career, Tyler Rouse has
received additional awards and team victories including, being named the
POST STANDARD'S Honor Athlete of the  Week  in  2010,  and  winning  two
Section III Class AA Sectional Championships in 2010 and 2012; and
  WHEREAS,  Humble  in spirit, Tyler Rouse takes his successes in stride
and is quick to credit his team members since no team can succeed  with-
out talent throughout the entire roster; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED,  That  this  Legislative  Body pause in its deliberations to
honor Tyler Rouse upon the occasion of being named Gatorade's  2012-2013
New  York Player of the Year, and to recognize his athletic and academic
excellence; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Tyler Rouse.
