PHOTO: President Obama Presents Air Force Academy With Commander-In-Chief Trophy

It was a special day for the Air Force Academy's football team on Monday when President Barack Obama presented the team with Commander-in-Chief trophy. During the 2010 football season, the Air Force Falcons defeated Navy on Oct. 2, 16-7, and sent Army to defeat on Nov. 6, 42-22. This was the first time Air Force took home the trophy in seven years, Navy having captured it all those years. Before that Air Force held the trophy from 1997-2002.
