Navy’s frequently frustrating season finally ended Saturday. It didn’t conclude, as it has for the past several seasons, with an appearance in a bowl game. It didn’t conclude with a national championship, as it will for LSU or Alabama in a few weeks.
Seared into his memory was the empty feeling of watching Navy win last December’s annual flag-football rivalry game over his Army team. Christopher Carter said he and his soldier teammates vowed to not let it happen again.
With the clock ticking down and his team ahead by 30 points, Dennis Brown Jr. tried to stay humble and continue to work his team towards another touchdown.
