Georgia celebrated the championship with a parade and celebration in Athens, but some are hoping their celebration can continue in Washington D.C.
All 14 of Georgia’s U.S. House Representatives along with Ossoff and Warnock signed a letter requesting that the White House invites the Bulldogs to honor them later this year.
“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 2021-2022 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. Thank you for your attention to this matter. We hope you will join us in recognizing the tremendous achievements of all University of Georgia’s football players, coaches, and staff who contributed to this championship season.”
