Army sophomore RB Andy Davidson rushed for 111 yards and two touchdowns on 18 carries in Saturday's 60-3 blowout of Morgan State.

The Black Knights were absolutely ruthless on the ground in this one. Not only did Davidson rush for 111 yards and a pair of scores, Cole Macek notched 109 yards and two touchdowns on the ground while Darnell Woolfolk managed 104 yards and a score of his own. As a team, Army rushed for 504 yards and seven touchdowns. For his part, the 6-foot-2, 220-pound Davidson has now rushed for 818 yards and nine touchdowns in 10 games played. He sat out last weekend's loss to Notre Dame due to an undisclosed injury, but looked no worse for the wear on Saturday.

Army expects senior WR Edgar Poe (hand) to return Saturday versus North Texas.

Knights head coach Jeff Monken announced the news, presumably thrilled, as his go-to receiver's absences in the past three games had rendered the triple-option offense even more one-dimensional than it usually is. Poe had only 16 catches last year, but he converted them into 441 yards (27.6 yards per catch) and six scores. If you creep up, he can make you pay deep. Deep into that darkness, long our hero Edgar stands peering out from the perimeter, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before. The boundaries which divide wins from losses are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say but Mr. Poe where the one ends, and the other begins?

Army sophomore RB Andy Davidson exited Saturday's game against Lafayette in the first quarter and never returned.

Davidson was felled on Army's first drive, having only rushed once for 11 yards. HC Jeff Monken was reportedly "uncertain on [the] severity" of Davidson's injury after the game. We'll update you on the 6-foot-2, 220-pounder's status when more is known.
Oct 15 - 5:20 PM

Army junior QB Ahmad Bradshaw rushed for 109 yards and a touchdown on six carries while completing 3-of-4 passes for 31 yards and an additional score in Saturday's 62-7 win over Lafayette.

Bradshaw and the Black Knights absolutely demolished Lafayette on the ground, racking up 537 yards rushing. For his part, the 5-foot-11, 196-pound junior busted out for a 60-yard touchdown run with a little less than five minutes gone in the fourth quarter. That bumped Army out to a 7-0 lead and it was off to the races at that point. Through six games, Bradshaw has accounted for six total touchdowns between his aerial work and his work on the ground.
Oct 15 - 3:42 PM

Army sophomore RB Andy Davidson rushed for 120 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries in Saturday's 13-6 loss to Duke.

Davidson averaged a sweet 7.5 YPC in the defeat. The 6-foot-2, 220-pound sophomore has been consistent as can be this season, having rushed for at least 100 yards in four of five games. Even in the outlier against Buffalo, he still managed to finish with 80 yards on the ground.
Oct 8 - 10:01 PM

Army sophomore RB Andy Davidson rushed for 106 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries in Saturday's 66-14 win over UTEP.

Davidson averaged a cool 6.2 YPC with a long run of 33 yards. The 6-foot-2, 220-pound former linebacker has been phenomenally competent this season. Through three games, he has rushed for 334 yards and six touchdowns. Davidson has managed at least 100 yards on the ground in every contest to date, scoring in each game to boot.

Army sophomore CB Brandon Jackson passed away on Sunday after being involved in a single-car accident.

Police believe that the crash occurred after Jackson's vehicle hit a guardrail and flipped. In a statement, HC Jeff Monken said, "Words cannot describe the grief that our team is feeling over the loss of our brother and friend, Brandon. He was a beloved teammate and our hearts are with his family at this time of tragedy." The 6-foot, 178-pounder was a nine-game starter as a freshman in 2015.
Sep 12 - 12:14 PM

Army sophomore RB Andy Davidson rushed for 107 yards and three touchdowns on 23 carries in Saturday's win over Rice.

Davidson led the Black Knights with his 107 yards on the ground, averaging 4.7 YPC with a long run of 22 yards. The 6-foot-2, 220-pounder scored singular touchdowns in the first, second and third quarters. Through two games, the converted linebacker has rushed for 228 yards and five touchdowns -- he has surpassed 100 yards rushing in each of Army's first two games.
Sep 10 - 3:45 PM

Army junior QB Ahmad Bradshaw is "likely" to be the starting quarterback this season.

That really de-escalated quickly. It was reported last week that Bradshaw had left both the football program, but just one day later the 5-foot-11, 196-pounder apparently changed his mind. And now he is set to start. In eight games (seven starts) last season, he rushed for 450 yards (3.4 YPC) and five touchdowns. He was surprisingly mistake-free in his limited time as a passer last season, throwing for 429 yards (47.9% completions) with a 5/2 TD/INT ratio.

Army starting junior QB Ahmad Bradshaw has left the football program and the Academy.

The timing might be odd, but actually it comes after Army's "Affirmation Ceremony." Beat writer Sal Interdonato explains "Juniors take the oath to complete their final two years at West Point and the ensuing commitment to serve five years of active duty following graduation." Bradshaw started seven games last season and was in charge of the quarterback position this offseason. Sophomore Chris Carter was his top competition, but Carter was sidelined for two weeks with a hamstring injury.

Army sophomore QB Chris Carter could miss up to a week in practice due to a hamstring injury.

Carter tested the hamstring by running on Friday, but he is still feeling tightness there. If he can't get back on the field in relatively short order, that figures to hamstring (puns) his progress in the on-going quarterback competition with junior gunslinger Ahmad Bradshaw. Army is looking to build up from last season's disastrous 2-10 campaign.
Aug 15 - 2:05 PM

Army coach Jeff Monken listed junior Ahmad Bradshaw and sophomore Chris Carter as co-starting quarterbacks on the post-spring depth chart.

"We have two No. 1 quarterbacks," Monken said. While Bradshaw is a more dynamic runner in close quarters, Carter is better at both pitching the ball and throwing it. "Perhaps, there will be a need or a reason for us to play both of them," Monken said. "I don’t know if we will do that. But, that may be the way it ends up." Bradshaw made seven starts in 2015 while Carter made two. "I hope these guys continue to grow," Monken said. "They both need to get better. As good as the competition was this spring, neither one of those guys is as good as we want them to be."

HudsonValley.com's Sal Interdonato reports that Army senior RB Aaron Kemper has been dismissed from the team due to an academic honor-code violation.

Army has confirmed that Kemper is no longer on the team, but (as tends to be the case with these things) would not elaborate as to the reason why. Last season, the 5-foot-6, 205-pounder rushed for 551 yards (5.4 YPC) and three touchdowns. Sophomore running backs Andy Davidson and Cole Macek surpassed him on the depth chart this spring. Those young men are just beginning to transition from linebacker to running back, making Army's situation in the backfield a somewhat tenuous one at this moment.
Jul 8 - 3:10 PM

Army senior CB Josh Jenkins tweeted that he is "looking to transfer."

Jenkins suffered a serious head injury in a fight with teammate Seth Combs during the Fourth of July weekend last summer. Combs was dismissed from the team, but the damage had already been done, as Jenkins was unable to play in 2015 due to his injuries. This spring, the 6-foot, 190-pounder was held out of contact drills. HC Jeff Monken said that he was hopeful Jenkins would be a go for contact work come August.
May 26 - 4:25 PM

Army senior LB Andrew King made the preseason Lott IMPACT trophy watch list.

King led the Cadets with 14 tackles for losses and five sacks last year, additionally chipping in 72 tackles. The 6-foot, 246-pounder, also a lacrosse player, is a Platoon Leader and Honor Officer.
