Title

Recognizing, Congratulating, and Honoring the Frankford High School Pioneers Baseball Team on winning the 2017 Philadelphia City Championship and the 2017 Public League Championship.

 

Body

WHEREAS, Frankford High School has a long and rich reputation in both the academic and athletic fields. The Frankford Pioneers baseball program has led the school’s athletic department with an amazing run, winning a total of twenty Philadelphia Public League Championship titles; the most in the history of the league; and

 

WHEREAS, In the 2017 season not only did the Frankford Pioneers win the Public League Championship, they also won their second City Championship against St. Joseph’s Preparatory School under Coach Juan Namnun; and

 

WHEREAS, Coach Namnun, an alumnus of Frankford High School, became the head coach nine years ago in 2008 where he went on to win his first championship that year. Of the twenty Public League Championship titles that the Frankford Pioneers hold, Coach Namnun has been a part of the team for ten of them; and

 

WHEREAS, The Frankford High School’s Pioneers Baseball Team has not only demonstrated dedication on the field, as they had an outstanding season which led them to the playoffs, but off the field as they coordinated fundraisers throughout the year; and

 

WHEREAS, Frankford High School has captured the attention of the City, State, and a number of colleges for the achievement of their players both on and off the field. All nine Senior Frankford Pioneers will be attending a number of colleges and trade schools in the fall. These seniors include Josh Pagan, Nick Herrera, Craig Lugo, Sam Jimenez, Eddilson Peralta, Jeiko Rorigues, Anderson Pena, Yoandry Payano, and Walid Hamdour; now, therefore, be it

 

RESOLVED, THAT THE COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF PHILADELPHIA, Hereby recognizes, congratulates, and honors the Frankford High School Pioneers on having their most successful season in school history and winning the 2017 Philadelphia City Championship and the 2017 Public League Championship.

 

FURTHER RESOLVED, That an Engrossed copy of this resolution be presented to the Frankford High School Pioneers Baseball Team as evidence of the sincere respect and admiration of this legislative body.
