Army fell to Duke on Saturday, 35-19. Each week recognizes a top offensive player, defensive player and unsung heroes. Look inside to find out which players is honoring this week.


The Black Knights got off to a great start but then things went South in the second half. Despite the loss, several players played their hearts out for Army


Patrick Mealy (USMA)
SB No. 5 Patrick Mealy

Mealy proved that last week's 75-yard run at Eastern Michigan was no fluke. He had a 55-yard run against Duke yesterday and finished with 99 yards. Mealy is averaging 104 per game rushing.


Andrew Rodriquez (USMA)
WHIP No. 42 Andrew Rodriguez

Duke tried early to get their running game going against Army. This was something they didn't try the week before in their loss to Richmond. Early on Andrew Rodriguez sent a message to the Blue Devils that they weren't going to be able to easily run on the Black Knights. Rodriguez had several hard tackles on that first drive and finished with seven tackles, four unassisted.


Matt Campbell (USMA)
KO No. 19 Matthew Campbell

Campbell had a rough day kicking the week prior at Eastern Michigan, missing two extra points. Alex Carlton kicked field goals and extra points for Army against Duke and did well. However, Campbell still helped the Black Kights greatly by kicking off for the Cadets. He boomed four kickoffs and during one kickoff he delevered a touchdown saving tackle on the Duke returner. Campbell showed good speed and tackling ability during that tackle and we can see why the coaches decided to keep him on kickoffs.
