Perfect-season Dolphins invited to White House
WASHINGTON (AP) — Members of the Miami Dolphins who achieved the only perfect season in NFL history will be honored by the White House next Tuesday, more than 40 years after their accomplishment.
President Obama will welcome the 1972 Dolphins for the first White House ceremony honoring the only team to be unbeaten through its 17-game season. Pro Football Hall of Fame coach Don Shula plans to accompany players from the team to the event.
The team also included quarterback Bob Griese, receiver Paul Warfield, fullback Larry Csonka, center Jim Langer, guard Larry Little and linebacker Nick Buoniconti, all members of the Hall of Fame.
