Good News to Army Black Knights: they are returning shortly…..

A total of 73 newcomers have been added to the Army football roster for the 2024 season.

Forty-six of the freshmen played for the U.S. Military Academy Prep School football team and 27 are direct admits from high school.

“We are thrilled to welcome the next generation of leaders into the Army football Brotherhood,’’ said head coach Jeff Monken, who is entering his 11th season at West Point. “The Class of 2028 will contribute to our program’s success this fall and in seasons to come. This is a talented group of athletes who are outstanding students and young leaders that are committed to serving our nation as Army officers.’’

The newcomers hail from 28 different states – there are none from New York state, and nine hail from Florida, Pennsylvania and Texas.

“Our coaching staff did an exceptional job recruiting young men of high character from across the nation,’’ Monken said.

The newcomers arrived for the annual Reception Day and were immediately thrust into summer cadet training.

The football preseason should get underway in the final week of July, a month ahead of the August 30 season opener with visiting Lehigh.

The current Army roster has 52 sophomores (out of 84 introduced as freshmen in July 2023), 29 juniors (out of 68 introduced as plebes in July 2022) and 29 seniors (out of 75 introduced as first-year players in July 2021) for a total of 183 players.
