The Knights to Know in 2019
2019 has brought out some great players and surprise hits for the West Point Black Knights. Many of the players will surely be fan favorites expected to return to the program in force in the 2020 season. Sportswriters are already making predictions on which players will be the ones to watch out for in future seasons and fans hotly contest these choices. But here are our picks for the Knights to Know in 2019 and beyond.
Kelvin Hopkins (Senior QB)
Though he won’t be returning for a future season, no list of great Army players this year is complete without mentioning Hopkins. His performance on the field has made him one of the 34 players on the watch list for the College Football Performance Awards National Performer of the Year Trophy at the start of the season as well as being a candidate for the Walter Camp Award. He was also billed as a potential selection for the Maxwell Award for the best all-around player as decided by a select panel and the Davey O’Brien National Quarterback Award. The skill and leadership that Hopkins showed and continues to demonstrate make him a shoo-in for Draft selection if he plans to go that route as well as a popular player who will be missed when he leaves Army. He is a major factor as to why the Black Knights have excelled offensively giving attack options that Army fans haven’t experienced in years.
Cole Christiansen (Senior LB)
After spending time behind James Nachtigal, Christiansen is ready to step out of the shadows and claim a name for himself. He joins the long list of successful Army linebackers providing a solid wall that opponents struggle to get past. At the start of the season he hasn’t been on any watch lists, but he has earned a spot on Phil Steele’s 2019 Preseason Independent First Team. He made big defensive plays last season and has been a reliable force this season as well. This is also why he’s the captain of the roster.
Peyton Reeder (Junior OL)
Peyton was set to take a vacated center position held by Bryce Holland, an excellent center who set a high bar for the team. But Reeder had the experience on the offensive line and the tenacity to fill the role. His skill and focus also earned him a place on the watch list for the Rimington Trophy, which is awarded to the best center in college football. We expect that he’ll fill Holland’s role and excel in his remaining seasons with the team and will prove how much value he adds to the Knights.
Kell Walker (Senior RB)
Kell Walker makes this list because of his skills as a running back and receiver. He’s part of the triple-option attack that the Army now boasts and is used by the team when fast yards are needed up the sides. But Walker isn’t a one-trick pony, as he shows his versatility and match awareness every time he’s on the field. He can be relied upon to move the football and fight for first downs anytime the ball is in his hands. He’s also made Phil Steele’s 2019 Preseason Independent First Team. Sportswriters expect head coach Jeff Monken to use him in most of their offensive plays and it’s easy to see why.
Who do you think is the player to watch and who will you be sorry to see leave at the end of the season?
One of the Biggest Rivalry Game in College Football
The Army Black Knights of USMA has a long-standing rivalry against the Navy Midshipmen of USNA as both teams represent their service’s oldest officer commissioning sources. The game embodies the spirit of interservice rivalry in the US Armed Forces and marks the end of the college football regular season. The game is one of the most enduring traditions in football to date and is frequently attended by sitting US Presidents as well as being televised each year since 1945 on ABC, CBS, or NBC, with CBS taking televising duties since 1996 with rights to broadcast the game through 2028. The game was played once at Michie Stadium in 1943 during World War II but has not appeared there since. The reason is that the stadium, while grand for all regular-season home games, is simply not large enough to handle the crowds that come to cheer on both teams and see how the rivalry ends in any specific year.
But looking at the current rivalry statistics shows that while Navy has the most lopsided victory and longest win streak, the Black Knights are currently enjoying a winning streak since 2016. If the current roster has anything to say about it, Army will add another year to their streak in 2019.
