Ferris State Football Team Receives Exclusive White House Invite
The Ferris State Bulldogs have had an eventful last two seasons to say the least.
The Bulldogs won their first national championship in school history in 2021, after they beat Valdosta State 58-17.
And to get one is impressive, but the team wasn't finished. They repeated their performance the next year in 2022, beating the Colorado School of Mines 41-14.
And it seems like they're on a run as it is... In fact, the Bulldogs are 55-3 over the last three seasons, which is one of the best records in the country no matter what division you're a part of.
We here in Michigan aren't the only ones who have taken notice of the Bulldogs incredible accomplishments... they've now been an extended an invitation to the white house from President Biden to celebrate their accomplishments.
On Monday June 12th, according to Fox17, Ferris student athletes will be traveling with head coach Tony Annesse and other staff members to Washington D.C.
That's where they will take part in “College Athlete Day,” a celebration of several national championship teams from NCAA Divisions I, II and III.
And not only will they get the honor of being honored inside one of the most important buildings in America, they are also the first Division II Championship team to be invited to the White House. Which, they are more than worthy of after their past 2 incredible seasons.
Congrats to the entire student body at Ferris State University as well as the athletes that trained and worked hard to earn this invite. They're making us all proud, and here's to a three-peat in 2023.
