Former Florida quarterback Jacoby Brissett enjoyed a stop at the White House on Wednesday as part of a trip to celebrate the New England Patriots’ Super Bowl victory over the Atlanta Falcons.
Turns out, he would like to meet another person familiar with Washington: Former President Barack Obama.
Brissett, who played for Florida in 2011 and 2012 and is a reserve signal caller for New England, wrote a heartfelt note to Obama that was shared on Twitter on Wednesday night. He begins by writing, “I am writing this letter to say thank you. I want to thank you for what you have done for this country — outside politics.”

No matter what you think of Obama, it’s clear that Brissett is being sincere with this note. It’s interesting to see that the former president had such a major impact on the player, and it’s obvious that Brissett would enjoy the chance to thank Obama in person one day.
Brissett threw for 455 yards with 3 touchdowns as part of the Gators. He finished his college career at North Carolina State.
