DESCRIBE ARMY FOOTBALL: Can’t describe Army Football in a couple of sentences.  To me it’s a bunch of guys who were told they couldn’t do it at the DI level their whole high school career because they’re two inches too short or 20lbs too light. But, what everybody didn’t see when they looked at the height/weight, 40 time, and bench press was how bad they wanted it and how much they were willing to do to make it.
