Army Spirit

Thousands of Army fans cheer, "Go Army, Beat Navy" the night of Dec. 9. After a Spirit Dinner at the Cadet Mess, the Black Knights led the Corps of Cadets out of Washington Hall and onto Daly Field for a Spirit Rally and Bonfire. Addressing the crowd outside were the brigade tactical officer, Col. Mark McKearn, Army head coach Rich Ellerson and captains of the Black Knights. The game ball was handed to the captain of the West Point Marathon Team who led his teammates out of West Point for a more than 170-mile run to Philadelphia. Immediately after the bonfire was lit, the team gathered at Battle Monument before embarking on the buses for the trip to Philadelphia to face the Navy Midshipmen at Lincoln Financial Field on Saturday.
