“It is easy for young athletes to think solely about their own performance,” said Milic. “Our athletes at Army-Navy realize that being part of a team requires thinking about and respecting one’s teammates. This respect carries beyond the field. Respect carries into the classroom and social settings. It was with grade pride that we honor these athletes.”
