INDIANAPOLIS (WLFI) - The West Lafayette football team was recognized on the Indiana House floor Tuesday for their 2018 state title. Representatives Sheila Klinker and Chris Campbell hosted the Red Devils at the statehouse.

West Lafayette defeated Evansville Reitz 47-42 in the Class 3A State Championship and finished the season 15-0. 

“The accomplishments of these young men speak to the talent, skill and dedication they have given to high school football and their team,” Klinker said. “This historic season will be remembered by players, coaches, friends, family, and now the Indiana General Assembly for years to come.”

The championship was RDP's first state title since 2009.
