|ESPN reports that Navy’s seniors originally selected “Load the Clip” as the motto for the 2019 season but replaced it with “Win the Day” on Friday. “It is always my priority, part of my mission statement, for the Navy to be a good neighbor,” Naval Academy Superintendent Vice Adm. Sean S. Buck said. “The bottom line is, we missed the mark here. The initial internal football team motto selected, ‘Load the Clip,’ was inappropriate and insensitive to the community we call home, and for that, I take responsibility for, and apologize to the entire Annapolis community.” Navy athletic director Chet Gladchuk said he agreed with the team’s decision to change the motto. “We are hopeful we can now put this behind us and ‘Win the Day,'” Gladchuck reiterated. Our best guess is the Midshipmen will convincingly ‘Win the Day’ when they open the season against Holy Cross on August 31.|
