ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. President Barack Obama welcomed the Naval Academy Football team to the White House on Wednesday (April 27), where they were awarded with the 2015 Commander-in-Chief's Trophy. "I am the eight president to award this trophy, and this is the eighth and final time that I will do it. What better way than by honoring this historic Navy Academy team?" said Obama at a ceremony, as the players stood behind him. "This squad wasn't just the best service academy on the grid-iron this year, it was one of the best teams in America," he added. The Commander-in-Chief's Trophy dates back to 1972, and is awarded to the service academy with the most wins against the two other service academies.
