Bobby Kough can still remember the moment Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds got away. "Somebody tried to cut [block] me. I was right there to tackle him," Kough, a junior defensive end for Army, said earlier this week. "I didn't have any force or power in my legs, so it was just my upper body. He kind of ran opposite of me, and I slid off of him. He strung it out to the sideline and our guys couldn't get to him. " The next thing Kough (pronounced Co) saw, Reynolds was in the end zone after an 8-yard touchdown run, one that gave the Midshipmen the lead with 4:41 remaining in last year's game at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.

The lives and careers of Navy football coach Ken Niumatalolo and Army coach Rich Ellerson have crossed many times over nearly three decades, starting when Niumatalolo was a two-sport high school athlete outside Honolulu and Ellerson recruited him to play quarterback at Hawaii. Ellerson brought Niumatalolo and two more highly acclaimed players, Thor Salanoa and Brian Norwood, from Radford High to play for the Rainbows. Salanoa was Niumatalo's cousin and Norwood, now the associate head coach at Baylor, was one of his best friends.

On the surface, Matt Hauser was an Army fan, wearing a black-and-camouflage jersey and rooting for the home team at the annual Army-Navy flag football matchup at Fort Meade. But like many Marylanders, he has deep respect for Navy, too. Lifting his Army jersey, he revealed a blue Navy jersey underneath. Even in flag football, Army-Navy is "a nice rivalry," said Hauser, a Severn insurance agent who helped organize a tailgate party for Thursday's game. But there's more to it, he said.

In the days leading up to his final game in the Army-Navy football rivalry, senior inside linebacker Cody Peterson is keenly aware of what is at stake for him and the rest of the Midshipmen, who have won the last 11 meetings in the annual series against their archrivals. "I think as a senior, you have a responsibility to uphold the standard as far as Navy football goes," Peterson said Wednesday morning during media day at Lincoln Financial Field. "There's pressure to get No. 12. We want to make sure that we do our job as seniors and leave on a good note.

It happened in the first quarter of Navy's wild overtime victory over San Jose State two Saturdays ago. It happened in the last regular season game before the Midshipmen get to play in their version of the Super Bowl , next week's 114th Army-Navy Game. It's something that happens just about every week somewhere in the football world, but it shouldn't have happened to this kid. Senior wide receiver Matt Aiken pulled in 10-yard pass and felt a shoulder pad crash into his left leg. He knew right away that something was wrong, because he already knew way too much about what football can do to the inside of a healthy knee.

In the not-too-distant future, Navy will meet archrival Army in the latest installment of arguably college football's greatest rivalry at Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field on Dec. 14. But before the Midshipmen (6-4) can begin focusing on preparing for their most contentious foe, they still have the matter of a nationally televised game Friday night at San Jose State (5-5). The two sides have met just twice, but the Spartans won both meetings, in 2011 and 2012. And they need just one more victory to become bowl-eligible.

The FBI is investigating allegations of child sexual abuse by a former employee of the Fort Meade Youth Center, a spokeswoman for the Army base said Friday. Authorities did not identify the man. Base spokeswoman Mary Doyle said the suspect left his job at the youth center in 2012. She said the abuse allegedly occurred at the center while he worked there. The allegations were reported to law enforcement, Doyle said, and the suspect has been banned from the base in Anne Arundel County.

A team of scientists at Aberdeen Proving Ground may play a critical role in helping the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, which recently won the Nobel Peace Prize, disarm Syria's stockpile of chemical weapons. In a squat brick building surrounded by two layers of chain-link fence topped with razor wire, the U.S. Army's Forensic Analytical Center is capable of dissecting samples of suspected or destroyed chemical weapons. It is one of 21 labs around the world certified to work with the organization to confirm the presence of nerve agents and other chemical weapons.

(Originally published December 26, 1943) For an hour yesterday, over a radio network that extended through Maryland and into Pennsylvania and Virginia, a special Sunpapers' Christmas broadcast brought to their folk and friends back home the voices and music of more than two-score soldiers from the three states who are stationed in the British Isles. The broadcast came from an army camp “somewhere in England” where invasion forces are training, and from a base of the Eighth Air Force elsewhere in the British Isles, through arrangements with the Army Special Services and the British Broadcast Corporation.
