WASHINGTON (WATE) - Congressman John J. Duncan, Jr. led a House tribute Wednesday to University of Tennessee Lady Vols head coach emeritus Pat Summitt.

"Pat Head Summit is certainly the most admired and respected woman in Tennessee. She is my most famous constituent and a long time friend. I have been honored on two occasions to be her honorary assistant coach," said Duncan (R-Tennessee).

He also noted her success on the basketball court attributing it to, "her very hard work, dedication, determination, and discipline. Most of her success she credits to hard-working parents and lessons learned on her family's Tennessee farm."

The nation is "a better place today," Duncan told the House, "because of her work with young people and the inspiring example that she has set for all of us. Coach Pat Head Summit is a great inspiration."

Congressman Duncan was joined on the floor by fellow Tennessee Representatives Stephen Fincher, Scott DesJarlais and Chuck Fleischmann.
