OK Blackhawk, as a football dad, these are mostly aimed at you, but I dont know if you know all the specifics yet being a new Navy Football dad.. I am clueless about NAVY Football but think I need to learn... So here they are..
1. Are the midshipmen required to go to every game?
2. Does Navy pay for them to go to away games? particularly AF and Army
3. I know there is a Bowl Game in San Diego? Do they send the mids there? I think it is during Christmas Break.. how does that work.
4. I think I have seen pics of all the Mids sitting together at games so i am assuming they cant bring dates? If family and friends go to the game are they able to meet up with their Mid?
And any other info you want to add about Navy Football would be appreciated.
OH, and what is a Red Shirt?
Curious, Are there other parents here on CC that have NAVY Football Players?
I recently heard about 2 Midshipmen Baseball players getting Professional Contracts (one for the Braves!). Lets say a 1/c Football-playing Midshipmen is offered a contract to the NFL .. does the NFL team pay off their Contract with USNavy or do they do their 5 years in the reserves or do they just do their 5 years first?
