PHILADELPHIA (AP) Army coach Jeff Monken hopped on top of a wall and pumped his fist toward stoked cadets set to belt out the alma mater. Monken brought the party to locker room and waved an "Army Football" flag as the Black Knights bounced around him.
Army ditched its mundane routines and cut loose like a bunch of rowdy civilians. And why not? The setting was right after Army beat Navy for the third straight game, this time in front of a packed house and the president.
"I don't ever want our guys to stop celebrating," Monken said. "I promise you, I'll be celebrating every year if we win this thing because I know how hard it is."
