ViacomCBS Veterans Network and CBS Sports hosted the first virtual online pep rally leading up to the epic Army Navy game! For those unable to attend, the pep rally is available at the ViacomCBS Veterans Network YouTube page. The pep rally overflowed with special moments: longtime Army/Navy sports commentators John Sadak and Ross Tucker moderated and interviewed a variety of guests from Ken Niumatalolo (Navy Head Coach), Jeff Monken (Army Head Coach), Trent Steelman (Army Quarterback 2009-2012), and Retired Col. Greg Gadson (Motivational Speaker, Wounded Warrior, and former Black Knight football player), to Phil McConkey (Former Super Bowl Champion and 1978 Navy Football Captain). The event featured spirit messages from the cast at SEAL Team, and well as joint Army/Navy spirit message compilations. The event was rounded off with remarks by Sean McManus, the Chairman of CBS Sports, and Rich Jones, ViacomCBS Chief Veteran Officer and ViacomCBS Senior Tax Counsel.
It was a privilege to host John and Ross, and the rest of the guests, as they provided amazing context for the rich and longstanding history of the Army Navy games. We can’t wait to see the game!
