Georgia Football Team Receives Invitation From Joe Biden To Visit White House

The Georgia football team is headed to the nation’s capital.

This week, the Bulldogs received an official invitation from President Joe Biden to visit the White House to celebrate the team’s second consecutive national championship.

“The President looks forward to welcoming the Georgia Bulldogs to the White House,” a White House official said in a statement to the Athens-Banner Herald.

A date for the visit has not been set.

Last year, the Bulldogs were unable to visit the White House because of COVID-19 precautions.

This year, it initially seemed like Georgia would once again miss out on a visit to the White House which led to backlash from players and politicians. Bulldogs defensive lineman Warren Brinson had said it was “crazy” that the team had yet to be invited, while U.S. Senators Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, along with U.S. Representative Earl LeRoy “Buddy” Carter wrote a request to the White House.

“The Georgia Bulldogs, led by Head Coach Kirby Smart, completed a historic season in which they accomplished a 15-0 record and won their second National Championship in the same number of years,” the Congressmen wrote. “The 2022-2023 team allowed an average of 14.2 points per game while scoring an incredible 41 points per game. This marks the fourth college football national championship in school history and the 2022-23 Bulldogs become the first team in the College Football Playoff Era to win back-to-back national championships.

“For years, the college football national champion has had the high honor of being hosted, by the President, at the White House. Due to COVID-19 constraints, the 2021-22 University of Georgia national championship team was unable to come to D.C. It is our hope that this repeat championship team can join the many teams prior that have been honored by the President.”

Now, the Bulldogs will get their wish.

Georgia claimed the national championship following the 2022 college football season with a dominant 65-7 win over the TCU Horned Frogs in January
