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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
May 20 - 8:01 PM

Army sophomore QB Ahmad Bradshaw (shoulder) will undergo an MRI on Sunday.

Following Saturday's 21-14 win over Bucknell, Bradshaw told HC Jeff Monken that his shoulder felt "OK." The 5-foot-11, 196-pound sophomore will have an MRI on Sunday to see the exact extent of the injury. Army hits the road to face Rice next weekend.

Army sophomore QB Ahmad Bradshaw has been named the team's starting quarterback for the 2015 season.

Bradshaw played mostly out of the shotgun at the United States Military Academy Prep School prior to joining the Black Knights, but he's apparently taken to Army's option scheme. The 5-foot-11, 196-pound sophomore doesn't possess burning speed, but he's a quick, strong runner.

Army FB Larry Dixon carried the ball 14 times for 90 yards in Saturday's 17-10 loss to Navy.

He also had a 20-yard reception. Army hung far tougher than expected in this popular rivalry, holding a 7-0 lead until Navy tied the affair with seconds left before halftime. The 5-foot-11, 239-pound Dixon will play in the East-West Shrine Game. He rushed for 1,092 yards and nine touchdowns in his last collegiate season. We don't like his chances of getting drafted.

Army FB Larry Dixon has accepted an invitation to the East-West Shrine Game.

Because the 5-foot-11, 239-pound Dixon plays in Army's triple-option attack, he's accrued far more rushing stats that your typical fullback. This season, in fact, he's already piled up 1,012 yards and nine touchdowns on 176 carries. It's possible a big post-season could convince a team to devote a seventh-rounder to procure his services, but more likely Dixon will enter the NFL as a UDFA.

Army senior RB Raymond Maples was granted a fifth season of eligibility due to a medical hardship waiver.

The veteran back already ranks sixth in academy history with 2,612 career rushing yards. Maples sustained a season-ending groin injury in September, ensuring that he would play less than 20 percent of Army's games and qualify for the exemption. It was thought that Maples would begin his military career after the injury, but he's changed his mind.
