College GameDay went to Philadelphia today to visit the annual Army-Navy game. Panelist Lee Corso has made no secret of his love for his days when he was an assistant coach for the Naval Academy from 1966-68. So imagine the surprise when GameDay dusted off an old feature of Corso coaching Navy’s offense in advance of the 1968 game. It was some amazing footage showing a much younger Corso showing great enthusiasm in practice and how much his players looked up to him. Lucky¬†for us, we have the footage here in case you missed seeing it.

As you could plainly see, Corso was moved seeing his younger self. The interesting thing is that Corso had never seen that footage until now. He said seeing it was priceless. And later during his headgear selection, the former coach picked Navy to win.
