About Cadet Mackenzie Riford: “It’s a lot about running fast and always improving, but it’s also about representing West Point at our events and about the whole team camaraderie. We train hard, but it doesn’t ever seem that bad because the team is really great so it turns out being a good time. The team is about people who have a mutual love of running.”

Thoughts On The 2012 Army-Navy Game Ball Run: "It’s really an honor to be part of the something like this. It feels really special because people see us doing it and they think it’s important, so we feel important. Then there’s the history side of it. The Army-Navy game is huge and we are just one small aspect of it, but we’re still just as essential to the history and spirit as the mules or the quarterback. That’s really cool to think about."
