Transcript Of Navy Head Football Coach Paul Johnson's Press Conference At Media Day

PJ: Hey guys. Thanks to everybody for coming out today. It seems like it was only yesterday that we played Army, but it's exciting to get back out there today and get started. We had a large number of guys that had a good summer. I was a little disappointed in some of the guys that came back not as good as I would have liked, but most of the guys we were counting on to play had good summers and came back in good shape. They are looking forward to making some improvement over last year. We were disappointed in our record last year. I felt like we were a better football team towards the end of the year than we were at the start. It didn't correspond in wins and losses necessarily, but I know we made progress and hopefully this year we can get the ship righted and have the kind of program that everybody is looking for. At this time I would like to open it up for questions. If anybody has one, I'll try to answer it. - FOOTBALL - News Releases


WEST POINT, N.Y. - The wait is finally over and Army head coach Todd Berry's first full recruiting class at West Point has begun to come of age.

More than three years have passed since Berry assumed the reins of the historic grid program along the banks of the Hudson, instituting sweeping changes in style of play on both sides of the football.

The dramatic transformation required a similar alteration in recruiting philosophy, with premiums placed on footspeed to support Berry's innovative one-back multiple offensive system and blitz-happy defensive package. And while Berry and his staff have been highly successful at injecting the type of blazing speed necessary to operate those systems, it's taken time for those new players to gain the type of experience necessary to be successful on the field.
