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
