Trump will do coin toss
WEST POINT, N.Y. >> President Donald Trump will officiate the coin toss before the Army-Navy game on Dec. 8.
West Point made the announcement leading to the game at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, where the No. 22 Black Knights (9-2) play the Midshipmen (3-9).
This will be Trump’s first Army-Navy game as president. He was at the 2016 game as presidentelect.
He will be the 10th sitting president to attend, a tradition that began with Theodore Roosevelt in 1901. Presidents, by custom, sit on the Army side of the stadium for one half and the Navy side for the other. Army will try to win for the third straight time in the series after losing the previous 14. The rivalry between the service academies began in 1890.
