Trump wel­comes cham­pion Clem­son to White House

The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS -

Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump is honor­ing Clem­son Uni­ver­sity’s NCAA cham­pion foot­ball team, call­ing its vic­tory a ti­tle “for the ages.”

The Clem­son Tigers won the na­tional cham­pi­onship in Jan­uary with a thrilling 35-31 vic­tory over the Alabama Crim­son Tide.

Trump said it was one of the great­est games he ever watched. He shook hands with star quar­ter­back De­shaun Wat­son and re­ceiver Hunter Ren­frow, who caught the win­ning touch­down with one sec­ond re­main­ing.

Trump told Ren­frow, “You’re so lucky you caught that ball.”

Trump was joined by a large con­tin­gent of Clem­son fans on the South Lawn, along with South Carolina Gov. Henry Mc­Mas­ter and mem­bers of the state’s con­gres­sional del­e­ga­tion.
