He took time to visit Moeller on Tuesday, where he graduated in 1968.

Students greeted Boehner with a standing ovation and a video presentation that brought Boehner to tears.

He was also presented with a framed photo and a #54 framed football jersey.

"I tried to steal that jersey 43 years ago," Boehner joked.

Boehner also held a question and answer session with students, where he talked about his time at Moeller.

"If I have one regret it's that I would have studied more," he said.
