Duncan welcomes Tigers to Washington DC


Congressman Jeff Duncan welcomed the National Champion Clemson Tigers to Washington D.C. this week. Congressman Duncan joined Coach Dabo Swinney and 180 players, coaches, and staff from the Clemson Tigers at the White House and then led them on a tour of the United States Capitol.
“I was thrilled to be able to share in this terrific day for my alma mater, Clemson University,” Duncan said. “It was incredible to join these young men and the dedicated coaches and staff who support them in celebration at the White House with President Donald Trump, and at the United States Capitol with the South Carolina Congressional Delegation. It was a joy to share in this celebration with so many folks from Clemson’s administration and Board, as well as team members and their families.”
Duncan was also impressed by Clemson head football coach Dabo Swinney.
“Coach Dabo Swinney impresses me on so many levels. This team’s national champion success on the field is matched only by the success off the field. Coach Swinney is a man of character and faith, and that translates into everything he’s trying to do with these young student-athletes. As a Clemson alumnus and former walk-on member of the football team, I couldn’t be prouder of what Dabo stands for.”
“It was my pleasure to show the team the Capitol today, to impart some of our nation’s history and culture, and to share the joy of their championship celebration.”
“Go Tigers!”
