Former Humboldt State lineman turned Super Bowl champion Alex Cappa visited the White House and met with President Joe Biden today during a scheduled visit with his fellow Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Cappa stood behind President Biden as he spoke during the ceremony on the White House’s South Lawn this morning.
“We’re here today to congratulate and welcome to the White House the Super Bowl Champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers,” President Biden said. “This Buccaneer team is a testament to the fact that it’s never too late to come together and achieve extraordinary things.”
Biden also indirectly praised Cappa during his speech by calling the Buccaneers’ offensive line “dominant.”

Buccaneers quarterback and seven-time Super Bowl Champion Tom Brady also spoke at the ceremony.
“Behind me is an amazing group of players,” Brady said. “It was a very challenging season for a lot of reasons, but we bonded together, we worked really hard, we put all of our individual agendas aside and we came together as a team.”
