YouTube gold: Highlights of the 1960 Army-Navy game


How good a year was 1960 for Navy football? Joe Bellino won the Heisman Trophy, the Midshipmen went 9-2 and played in their first and only Orange Bowl, and they beat Army for a second year in a row. During some random YouTube surfing, I stumbled upon this old-time style newsreel highlights of that game, narrated by the legendary Ed Herlihy. It’s a classic, featuring the legendary JFK Stadium (still Municipal Stadium in 1960), Joe Bellino making the game-winning interception and offenses that aren’t too different than what Army and Navy run today.

At the 2:30 mark, notice that the highlights and narration do not match at all.
