To be completely honest, I never really understood the big deal about Army-Navy. I got the fact that it's an incredibly intense rivalry. I saw that they've knocked heads since 1890. And the sight of stadium sections packed with soldiers and sailors in dress grays and blues has impressed me as much as anyone. But it's not big-time college football. The teams aren't as good as the ones on TV every week. And virtually none of the players is well known or headed to the NFL.
Life at the U.S. Military Academy couldn't have been much better for linebacker Andrew Rodriguez as a sophomore in 2009.
Rich Ellerson's sales pitch to potential Army football recruits doesn't revolve around triumphs at Michie Stadium. At least not initially.
Army coach Rich Ellerson has the triple option purring. The passing game? Running on empty.
Rich Ellerson's first season at Army was successful in several ways. The Cadets won five games and were more competitive than they had been in years.
Army senior quarterback Max Jenkins said he is not sure whether anyone else could have endured the same ordeal and come out as well as Rodriguez.
"It might have been surprising to him, but not to us," Jenkins said. "It's a testament to his character that he missed the entire season and teammates still felt like he was a leader. We all knew coming into it that he was going to be voted one of the captains."
