H.R. No. 122
         WHEREAS, Galveston native Mike Evans of the Tampa Bay
  Buccaneers furthered his stature as one of the National Football
  League's top pass catchers by recording his ninth consecutive
  1,000-yard receiving season in 2022-2023; and
         WHEREAS, In a matchup against the Carolina Panthers on
  January 1, 2023, Mr. Evans extended his streak in dramatic fashion,
  hauling in a 63-yard touchdown pass from Tom Brady to spark the Bucs
  to a 30-24 win that clinched the NFC South Division title; Mr. Evans
  holds the league record for the most consecutive 1,000-yard seasons
  to start a career, and he is now in a second-place tie for the
  longest streak of 1K campaigns among all NFL receivers; and
         WHEREAS, Mr. Evans first gained attention at Ball High School
  in Galveston, where he played football only as a senior; he hauled
  in 25 passes for 648 yards and 7 touchdowns that year to earn
  All-Region and Second-Team All-District honors; at Texas A&M
  University, he garnered All-American and All-Southeastern
  Conference accolades; moreover, he set a school record as a
  redshirt sophomore with 1,394 receiving yards, and he recorded the
  two highest single-game receiving totals in program history; and
         WHEREAS, Mr. Evans was selected by Tampa Bay as the seventh
  pick in the 2014 NFL Draft; in addition to leading the NFL in
  receiving touchdowns each year since entering the league, he owns
  six of the Buccaneers' top 10 single-game receiving marks, and he
  has the most touchdown receptions, total TDs, receiving yards,
  receptions, and yards from scrimmage in franchise history; a
  four-time Pro Bowl selection, he helped lead the Bucs to the 2021
  Super Bowl championship; and
         WHEREAS, Mike Evans has inspired football fans across the
  Lone Star State and beyond, and he may indeed take great pride in
  his many accomplishments; now, therefore, be it
         RESOLVED, That the House of Representatives of the 88th Texas
  Legislature hereby congratulate Mike Evans on recording his ninth
  consecutive 1,000-yard receiving season in the NFL and extend to
  him sincere best wishes for continued success; and, be it further
         RESOLVED, That an official copy of this resolution be
  prepared for Mr. Evans as an expression of high regard by the Texas
  House of Representatives.
