TO CONGRATULATE THE CITADEL BULLDOG FOOTBALL TEAM, STAFF, AND COACHES HEADED BY NATIONAL COACH OF THE YEAR, CHARLIE TAAFFE, FOR A TRULY OUTSTANDING 1992 SEASON.
Whereas, the 1992 Citadel football team finished the season ranked in a tie for number one in the country in the final NCAA Division 1-AA poll; and
Whereas, the Bulldogs won a school-record eleven games, and hosted the first two rounds of the 1-AA playoffs, winning their first-ever playoff game; and
Whereas, the Bulldogs also defeated Arkansas and Army on the road for six wins in The Citadel's last seven meetings against 1-A teams, and the Class of 1992 became the winningest class in Citadel football history with a record of 30-15; and
Whereas, The Citadel won its second Southern Conference Football championship and the first since 1961 and broke all attendance records at Johnson Hagood Stadium; and
Whereas, head coach Charlie Taaffe was named National Coach of the Year by Sports Network and the American Football Coaches Association, and South Carolina Coach of the Year by the South Carolina Association of Sports Writers; and
Whereas, for a coach like Charlie Taaffe to accomplish such outstanding achievements at a school where recruiting is at times difficult and where it takes a special caliber of athlete to perform well on the football team and in the military system speaks very highly of his truly gifted ability as a football coach; and
Whereas, the success of the 1992 Citadel football team brought great pride and recognition not only upon The Citadel and its loyal and enthusiastic alumni and supporters, but also to the State of South Carolina as well; and
Whereas, the members of the General Assembly, by this resolution, would like to publicly recognize and congratulate each player, member of the staff, and each coach and especially Head Coach Charlie Taaffe upon the conclusion of a truly memorable season. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly hereby congratulate The Citadel football team, staff, and coaches headed by National Coach of the Year, Charlie Taaffe, for a truly outstanding 1992 season.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to Lt. General Claudius E. Watts, III, President of The Citadel; Walt Nadzak, Director of Athletics; and Charlie Taaffe, Head Football Coach.
