On Wednesday, the U.S Senate unanimously passed a resolution to honor the 35th anniversary of the film ‘Hoosiers’.

Indiana Senators Todd Young and Mike Braun proposed the resolution last week in order to recognize the film and the impact it had on the “Hoosier State” of Indiana.

“‘Hoosiers’ is a classic sports movie, but only because it accurately captured our state’s obsession with basketball from the smallest towns to the largest cities,” Young said in a statement at the time. “As we begin the IHSAA tournament and prepare for March Madness, it’s fitting that we honor these milestone anniversaries.”

Braun had his own statement on why he felt Hoosiers should be recognized.

“Every weekend, Hoosiers head to the local gym to watch high school basketball and this resolution honors one of our most iconic gyms where the movie ‘Hoosiers’ was filmed 35 years ago.”

“Not only am I honored to introduce this resolution on the first day of our boys basketball state tournament, in a few weeks the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament will descend on Indiana which is a win for local economies throughout the state,” Braun said.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer announced the passing of the bill on the Senate floor on Wednesday.

“And it was a very good film, I must add,” Schumer said of the film.

‘Hoosiers’ truly is one of the top sports movies of all-time. You know it’s worth something when the Senate passes something together. That doesn’t happen much in this day-in-age.
