VIDEO: Eric LeGrand and the Army football program

Posted by Chip Patterson

On October 16, 2010 Rutgers defensive lineman Eric LeGrand suffered a spinal cord injury after making a play during a kickoff against Army that paralyzed him from the neck down. Since then, his road to recovery has been well documented as LeGrand and the entire Scarlet Knights community have embraced his BELIEVE campaign and the plan to walk on his own again one day.

The experience has also brought LeGrand close to the entire Army football program, as the Black Knights have joined college football fans everywhere in support of LeGrand's miraculous recovery.

In Episode 8 of Game of Honor you can see how the experience has effected the Army players, and the unique bond they now share with LeGrand. Watching this episode will also be an opportunity to give back, as CBSSports.com will make a contribution to the Wounded Warrior Project for every view of the video.

Army's 29-7 victory sealed with pick-lateral-six

Posted by Chip Patterson

Army's rushing attack led the way for the Black Knights against VMI in West Point on Saturday.  After blowing a late lead to lose against Rutgers a week ago, Army had to change the way they were finishing games.  Donovan Travis sealed Saturday's matchup closed with a fantastic interception which eventually transformed into a touchdown (crazy scientific stuff, I know.)  Travis picked off Eric Kordenbrock's pass and shuffled and began his return before getting tied up around midfield.  Before being brought to the ground he lateraled the ball to Jordan Trimble, who took the ball the rest of the way for the touchdown.
