President Honors Super Bowl Champs

President Obama welcomed the 2015 Super Bowl Champions, the New England Patriots, to the South Lawn of the White House to celebrate their 2015 NFL championship.

The Patriots won their fourth Super Bowl championship in Arizona on Feb. 1 with a 28-24 victory over the Seattle Seahawks that wasn’t settled until Malcolm Butler’s interception in the final minute.

The event  honored the NFL champions as part of the President’s broader push to recognize athletes and sports stars for their contributions to their communities and their leadership on and off the field.

On the South Lawn, the President congratulated the Patriots for being one of the teams committed to leading the way, commending the players for volunteering in the community and visiting schools and hospitals through the NFL’s Play 60 initiative. President Obama also congratulated the Patriots Marathon Team for running in the Boston Marathon, where they raised more than $230,000 for charity, helping to show that Boston is still stronger than ever.
