The young fella was excited today as he told us about how the encounter he had yesterday with President Barack Obama in Ann Arbor.
The President of the United States gave the commencement speech at the graduation.
“I got to shake his hand. It was a real cool thing — my coach set it up, (Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez) .. I was like ‘please I’m about to go, I just want to shake his hand,’ and¬†I shook his hand. It was real nice. He just said, ‘Go Blue.'”
