Grinding Out The Profits
Ever wonder how Army got so good? The Football team had one winning season in 17 years. Now, they’re coming off 3 consecutive bowl victories, a school-record 11 wins last season and a near upset of the Wolverines. Axios Sports reports Army’s football program has slightly loosened its academic requirements and begun relying more heavily on its prep school, where players can spend a year getting acclimated to the U.S. Military Academy’s unique atmosphere which serves largely as a 10-month academic boot camp. Fourteen of Army’s 22 starters in their double-OT loss to Michigan this past Saturday spent a year at prep school.
