Who is the best Army player of the last 50 years

Who's the top Army player of the last 50 years?

In its history, Army has had its share of standout performers.  Three Heisman trophy winners, an Outland Trophy winner, 71 First Team All-Americans, and 25 players in the College Hall of Fame.

We all know the famous names that surround Army football - Felix "Doc" Blanchard, Glenn Davis, Pete Dawkins, Joe Steffy.  All of those players played in the Golden Age of Army football. The times when Army was consistently a top 10 team and garnered three national championships.

However, who is the best player since then?  In order to find out, we are going to put it in the hands of the fans.  Over the next week, we want you to nominate who you think the best Army player has been since the 1959 season.  Nominate as many players as you wish, and we will take the top 32 vote-getters to build out a "bracket" style contest.  We will then put the voting in your hands, allowing you to vote in the head-to head matchups throughout the season, and announcing the winner on Army-Navy weekend.

The nominations start now.  Click the link below to submit your nomination for the top Army players in the last 50 years, along with why you think they deserve to be there.

We look forward to your nominations, and look forward to crowning Army's top Player of the last 50 years.  Nominations are due by Tuesday, October 20, 2009.
