On this week’s episode of Yards and Stripes, Price Atkinson is joined by Army West Point play-by-play “voice” Rich Demarco and Army cadet/student radio host at West Point’s 89.3 FM WKDT’s James Crimmins.
Now before those conversations, Price recaps last weekend’s games as Navy scored a 48-45 victory over Air Force and Army defeated Rice 49-12. Plus, Price gives out his weekly game ball, which went to a member of the Navy team.
Up next is Army West Point play by play broadcaster Rich DeMarco to recap the Black Knight’s 49-12 win over Rice, which was led by the six turnovers the defense forced in the game. Plus, they talk about the tough second half schedule facing Army and what has been the biggest surprise at the halfway point this season for Army.
Following his conversation with DeMarco, he brings on Army junior cadet and West Point student radio host 89.3 FM WKDT’s James Crimmins to discuss what’s the excitement like in the Corps of Cadets right now with the 4-2 Black Knights? Also, why homecoming is special at Army West Point, and his keys to the game Saturday against visiting Eastern Michigan.
