Greg Huegel is more than the starting kicker for the Clemson Tigers. He is currently majoring in construction science and his educational pursuit allowed him to observe the construction of a new house for Tiger head football coach Dabo Swinney.
But it was on June 12 when Huegel took the ultimate tour when the team was in Washington D.C. Clemson was part of a lavish ceremony at the White House and the coaches and players took part in an in-depth tour of the building which has been the home of every U.S. President since 1800.
For Huegel, it was fascinating as he took note of the way the inside of the White House was constructed.
"The architecture of the White House, the way every single room ties together," Huegel said Tuesday after a speech to the Greater Blythewood Chamber of Commerce.
"How they've been able to keep everything consistent design-wise for as long as it's been around is truly amazing. That was a phenomenal experience."
Huegel is a former architecture major so naturally, his eye on the details allowed him to look at the tour from a different perspective.
"The architecture within the rooms, within the building is something I'll remember forever."
