Army Black Knights Football Team
football back as early as 1890, the Army Black Knights are one of the most storied college football programs in the sport.
The sport of football was in its early stages back then, when rules were still being devised. They were challenged to a friendly
game by their rivals at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. From that point on, the Army Black Knights were one of the
strongest teams in college football. The Golden Age of the program came in the 1940's, when the Black Knights were dominant.
The program won three National Championships in a row, in 1944, 1945 and 1946 under Earl Blaik, for whom the field at Michie
Stadium is named after. The student athletes at the United States Military Academy have dedicated their lives to serving their
country in many different ways and watching them unite to represent their school on Saturdays is a sight to behold.
