Historically, there have been very few Navy Midshipmen who have gone on to play in the NFL because
once players are done with their college playing career, they move on to complete their service requirements. Still, when
it comes to Midshipmen in the NFL, one name always stands above the rest: the great Roger Staubach. Staubach played for Navy
in their golden years, and was the last serviceman to win the Heisman Trophy when he won the award in 1963, leading the Midshipmen
to a 9-1 record and finished the season number two after losing the National Championship game to Texas. Outside of Staubach,
however, the Midshipmen have had plenty of other great players and teams, including 23 consensus All-Americans and a growing
tradition of winning that always creates plenty of buzz around Annapolis. With a program that dates all the way back to 1879
and more than 650 all-time wins, the Midshipmen have a team that is always in the middle of one exciting season or another,
making it always a good time to keep an eye on the team as they look to bring home some big wins.
The Midshipmen have had two different Heisman winners in just a few years. Can you name them?
answer is both Roger Staubach and Joe Bellino. Though Staubach often gets credited with the being the most celebrated player
in program history, the Heisman tradition actually started a few years before Staubach won the award. In 1960, halfback Bellino
absolutely dominated defenses all around the country and ended up walking away with the Heisman before playing both in the
AFL and the NFL. Staubach, in 1963, followed suit by elevating the entire program and bringing home the Heisman in one of
the best seasons in program history.
