Video: Clowney Gets Standing Ovation at State House

Jadeveon Clowney shakes hands at the State House on May 28, 2013.

Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Maybe Jadeveon Clowney can do everything--even bringing Republicans and Democrats together, if only for a moment.

The General Assembly honored the USC defensive end with a resolution Tuesday, leading to an outpouring of support and affection from lawmakers for the Gamecock superstar.

The resolution acknowledged Clowney for being the SEC Defensive Player of the Year, the AT&T National Player of the Year, and for his other accomplishments this past season.

And Michigan Wolverine fans won't like this--it also gives him thanks for his hit on their running back, Vincent Smith, during the Outback Bowl.  The play received frequent replays in national media in the weeks after it took place. Previous Coverage: Frame-by-Frame of Clowney's Big Hit

After receiving the accolade, lawmakers also gave him a standing ovation. And in a scene you won't see very often, lawmakers of both political stripes rushed Clowney to take pictures, shake his hand, and get autographs.
