Navy Fan Fest a success

Center Bradyn Heap picked up on this when he pointed out that, "It's good to interact with the fans on a personal basis. We get to see who is coming to watch our games."

Though older fans were obviously most interested in the players, some of the younger guests seemed much more enamored with the bouncy castles and balloon animals. After all, how can a football player ever hope to compete with a balloon Elmo in the heart of a three year old fan?
For the rest of the week the Midshipmen go behind closed doors again for a full week of practices. The next time that the general public will be able to see the 2012 Mids is the annual Blue & Gold BBQ scrimmage on Saturday August 11th at noon.
