June 17, 2017

Michigan football head coach Jim Harbaugh plans to ask former President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama to serve as honorary captains for a Wolverines’ home game in the upcoming season, according to ESPN.

“We’re making those asks. Official asks,” Harbaugh said. “In the process of making an official ask. There’s been, ‘Hey we’d like you to do it,’ and now we’re doing officials asks.”

Harbaugh met with Obama in Washington, D.C. this week.

28th Birthday! Sad that I didn't get to spend it with @brhitney but DC was an incredibly special way to end my best year yet. I'm grateful for all the amazing people in my life!
