COMPRESSING 130 YEARS OF NAVY FOOTBALL HISTORY INTO 5 MINUTES

As we close out the football season, here’s a little something to honor the 2008 team as they take their places among the friends, classmates, childhood heroes, personalities, and legends that are legacy of Navy football.

Beat Army!

    It is goo but it would help some of us if the scenes were identified by year e.g. the 1926 National Championship team could be identified only by the stadium

    Outstanding video Mike –> 130 years of Navy Football captured quite nicely, … and THANKS “squared”!

    Go Navy!!!

  6. Jim– There’s a picture of that play in the Nimitz online archive, aka the greatest website on earth:

    One of two pictures from that year’s Lucky Bag, titled “Insult” and “Injury.”

    Mike, … I know I’m showing my age, … but who is the artist, … and what’s the title of that song?

    Also, … Is there a link to the video that I can e-mail to a few old shipmates/family? The menu selection of “share this video” won’t work.

    Thanx in advance.

    Jim Baldinger — I’m in the cyber-presence of greatness! Looking at that photo, your catch had little to do with luck.

    Great video, Mike — I really liked the panoramic shot of the 100,000 at Soldier Field.

    Great video!! Tom Bakke ’76 son of Tom Bakke ’52 says hi to Jim Baldinger. You are right 1950 upset win over Army was the biggest!! Army coach complaining before the game that they should be ranked number 1 not number 2 and Navy coach responding that they should be ranked number 63 not 64. What a story.

    Mike,

    Have had computer connection problems that didn’t allow viewing until now. Loved seeing Shalimar Brazier nail that TT QB again! Thanks for doing this. Great effort.

    I am looking for information on Louie Rash. In 1940 in transferred from the USS California and attended Annapolis. I believe he might have played football also. He played on the USS California Football Team from 1936 – 1939. Thank you
