The Clemson football team has a tentative date scheduled for its visit to the White House for its national championship celebration, according to head coach Dabo Swinney.
While speaking to Grace Raynor of The Post and Courier this week, Swinney said the program is expected to make the trip on June 12.
Of course, the big question is will anyone skip the visit?
Some players will obviously be unable to go thanks to previous engagements or preparations for the NFL, but we could also see some Tigers players decide to skip the visit altogether like members of the New England Patriots did in protest of the current President of the United States.
For his part, Swinney left politics aside and simply said it should be a fun experience for anyone who can make it.
“I got to do it as a player [at Alabama] back in 1992 – the spring of 1993 – so I’m excited for our guys to have an opportunity to get to go,” said Swinney. “I don’t know if all of (the players) can go, some of our (former) seniors have camps and stuff, but it’ll be a fun trip. The Capitol and the White House – you get to do something in a way that very few people get to do.”
