Navy Football Honored in Rose Garden

Today President Bush awarded the Naval Academy Football Team with the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy at the White House Rose Garden. The Class of "07 team had the best record in its four years of any team since 1909. They beat Army and Air Force in all of their four seasons and this year ended up with a 9-3 record, losing by one point to perennial football power Boston College in the Meineke Car Care Bowl.

The class of '07 will graduate every team member this year. That is probably their greatest accomplishment and, in and of itself, should rank them as the best team of scholar athletes in the nation.

Congratulations, and of course... GO NAVY!
