? Army has had three men named to first-string All-America teams three seasons in a row. Who are the players?
? Navy has not had any three-time All-Americas hut has had five two-time All-Americas. Who were they?
? Has an Army or Navy player ever won the Heisman Trophy or the Maxwell Club award?
?Yes, Army and Navy have had three winners apiece. Glenn Davis won the Maxwell Club award in 1944 and the Heisman Trophy in 1946; Doc Blanchard won both awards in 1945 as did Pete Dawkins in 1958. Ron Beagle (1954) and Tackle Bob Reifsnyder (1957) both won the Maxwell Club award, and Bellino was given both awards last year.
? Joe Bellino scored three touchdowns against Army in the 1959 game, which Navy won 43-12. Who was the last player before Bellino to score three touchdowns in an Army-Navy game?
? Doc Blanchard in 1945 when Army beat Navy 32-13.
? Army's mascot is a mule, Navy's a goat. How did these animals win selection as the mascots of the academies?
?Legend has it that both actually came from the Army. The mule was selected near the turn of the century because it was the best-known animal to be identified with the U.S. Army (The mule hauled guns and supplies in most of the Army's battles). Naval Cadets commandeered a goat from the noncommissioned officers' quarters in 1890 on arriving at Highland Falls, N.Y. (site of the military academy) for the first Army-Navy game. The goat has been a Naval Academy symbol ever since.
