Army West Point Football Team Receives Commander in Chief’s Trophy From President Trump


Today at the White House, President Trump presented the Commander in Chief’s Trophy to America’s Team, the Army-West Point Football Squad. Army won this honor for the second year in a row, the first time this has ever happened. Here’s the video via YouTube.

Prior to these past three years, the Army team struggled, failing to eke out a win over Navy for 14 straight years—a miserable decade for we diehard supporters. Even the Navy coach commented that Army needed to win in order to save this tradition. December 2016, the drought ended, resulting in this old Colonel crying and blubbering in front of the TV.

Here’s looking forward to another spectacular season. Go Army! Beat Navy…Again! Side note…Service Academy competitions are the only events that I can think of, where everyone playing is willing to die for everyone watching.
