The Commander-in-Chief's Trophy is awarded to each season's winner of the CFBHC triangular series among the Air Force Falcons, Army Black Knights, and Navy Midshipmen. In the event of a tie, the award is shared, with the previous winner retaining possession of the trophy.

History of the trophy

The trophy is named for the President of the United States, who is the Commander-in-Chief of all U.S. military services under the U.S. Constitution.

The trophy

The trophy itself stands 2.5 feet (0.76 m) high and weighs 170 lb (77.1 kg). The design consists of three silver footballs in a pyramid like arrangement, set on a circular base, with three arc-shaped sections cut out — one for each academy. In each of the cut-out areas stands a silver figurine of the mascot of one of the academies, in front of small, engraved plates denoting which years the respective academy has won the trophy. Beneath each of the three silver footballs is the crest of one of the three academies.

When Air Force has possession of the trophy, it is displayed in a glass case in the Cadet Fieldhouse, the indoor sports complex at the Air Force Academy. When Army possesses the trophy, it is housed in a glass case in Eisenhower Hall, the academy's theater and ballroom. When Navy has possession of the trophy, it is displayed in a glass case in Bancroft Hall, the Midshipmen's dormitory.

Winners of the trophy

In the event of a shared award, the previous year's winner retains custody of the trophy.
