I attended all the home games and A-N in 1981 and 1982 when our new supe was a defensive lineman. While we cannot predict the future, having a former Army player as the supe is a good sign for Army football.

Best of luck to LTG Williams. I feel confident that USMA and Army football will continue to move forward under his leadership.

He also did some spirit videos for the Army/Navy game when he was a General Officer. The enthusiasm and dedication is obviously genuine, which means he'll be following in the tradition of Scott and Caslen. Trust that he and Monken will forge a super bond... Great news for the program!!

Bring out that Super Glue! We have to bind both Williams and Monken together with no hassles for the future.
One heart and one mind over our Army Football. ;)
Lets put Boo in the mix too.

As a side thought, can Gen Williams ride a motorcycle for opening home game this year against Liberty?
