Army's goal: Win every play vs. Navy

Sal Interdonato Times Herald-Record @salinterdonato Bryce Holland was 18 years old and six months removed from Hamilton High School in Chandler, Ariz., when he started his first Army-Navy game.

As Holland prepares for his fourth and final Army-Navy start Saturday at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, his mentality remains the same.

Army coach Jeff Monken’s concern level begins to rise before the opening kickoff.

Last year’s 14-13 Army victory had everyone on edge until Navy kicker Bennett Moehring’s field goal attempt sailed wide left as time expired.

The countdown clock to this game was reset in Army’s locker room before the Black Knights’ celebration ended in Philadelphia one year ago.

Two-win Army, starting freshman quarterback Chris Carter, took 11-win Navy to the limit in a 21-17 Midshipmen victory.
