WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) and Tim Scott (R-South Carolina) today delivered remarks on the Senate floor congratulating the Clemson University football team on their 2017 College Football Playoff National Championship.
- GRAHAM: “If you’re looking for a place to go to school where you will be academically challenged, go to Clemson. If you’re looking for a place to go to school where you’ll be a part of a community, something bigger than yourself, go to Clemson. If you’re looking for a place to watch sports at the highest level possible, go to Clemson.” https://youtu.be/36NLU06SNEg?t=2m11s
- GRAHAM: “Dabo Swinney, I think, represents the best in college sports. The Clemson team is truly a family. If I had a son, I would want him to play for Dabo.” https://youtu.be/36NLU06SNEg?t=2m2s
- GRAHAM: “What Deshaun has done for Clemson is unbelievable. The way he’s done it is even more unbelievable. He graduated in three years. He’s one of the nicest young men I have ever met in my life.” https://youtu.be/36NLU06SNEg?t=1m12s
- GRAHAM: “I want to congratulate the Tigers. Who you beat was impressive, but more impressive is how you have conducted yourselves over the last couple of years.” https://youtu.be/36NLU06SNEg?t=2m30s
