Casey Weil has a key to the city.

The Stephenville City Council presented Weil with the token Tuesday night along with a resolution honoring the Honeybee soccer team for its historic state championship win.

Weil said he was “absolutely shocked” to receive the key from Mayor Kenny Weldon.

“What a great honor,” Weil said. “When Mayor Weldon opened the box I started shaking and didn’t know what to say. But again I have to thank the girls on my team and other coaches; without them none of this would have been possible.”

Weil said he plans to put the key somewhere safe, then have it framed with the proclamation.

“We’ve made it really far in the payoffs in years past, but were never recognized by the city council,” Weil said. “It was really neat and the Honeybee soccer program would like to thank the Stephenville City Council and the community of Stephenville for supporting us.”
