President John F. Kennedy, a former naval hero and a passionate football fan, was looking forward to watching the Midshipmen take on the Cadets at the annual Army-Navy game on November 30, 1963. "I hope to be on the winning side when the game ends," he telegrammed the Navy coach on November 20. Two days later, the president was assassinated in Dallas, changing the nation forever.

Exploring the close relationship between President Kennedy and the Navy football squad of the early 1960s, author Michael Connelly describes how the 1963 Army-Navy game---which was played on December 7 after an initial postponement---served as a welcome distraction for a nation in mourning while provding a opportunity to honor JFK's memory. Connelly ties together the historic Army-Navy rivalry with the changing political landscape of the 1960s, both at home and overseas. The President's Team delves into Kennedy's love of football and the special bond he established with many of the Navy players, including Heisman winner and former Hall of Famer Roger Staubach.


Booklist Online, January 13, 2009

With even Kennedy’s assassination gradually fading into history as just another national tragedy, Connelly’s reframing of the event in terms of a very specific context manages to capture the anguish of a nation in a new and surprisingly compelling way.

Connelly did a superb job of weaving the incidents of the final year of Kennedy's presidency into his narrative on the Army-Navy rivalry and 1963 game. It's an emotional history lesson for those who lived that year, a very entertaining read.

Boston Herald sports reporter Michael Connelly takes readers back to the time period and tells the parallel stories in an engaging, though occasionally verbose, manner. He has read almost every press account of the subject and also spoke with the players and coaches who are still alive. Mr. Connelly doesn't break a great deal of new ground, but synthesizes information well. As a decorated Navy hero, Mr. Kennedy had a special bond with the football team of the U.S. Naval Academy that predated his presidency. There is an extensive discussion of Mr. Kennedy's naval heroics as well as his love of football, including much detail about the Kennedy family's frequent football games on the lawn of their estate in Hyannis Port, MA… As Mr. Connelly noted, during the season Mr. Staubach "scrambled, dodged and avoided the fastest and biggest football players in the country, but there was no escaping the wrath of Ethel." Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy poked his finger in the face of Navy Coach Wayne Hardin and said "I thought you knew, how important that game was to my family.'' Such behind-the-scenes revelations make "The President's Team: The 1963 Army-Navy Game & The Assassination of JFK" an enjoyable book.

5つ星のうち 5.0 President's Team - a great read! 2009/11/26
By Koepp - (
This was an extraordinary time in history and Connelly brought the events and the amazing people clearly to light in his book. For the tradition and rivalry of the game to have be directly tied to one of the most devastating periods in American history secured it one of the most important games of it's time and I'm glad that I now know about it.

Connelly's books are always a great read but this may just be his best yet. Anyone who enjoys football, is associated with Army or Navy, or is a Kennedy buff will, of course, enjoy the book but I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it since I was too young to remember 1963 firsthand and have never been associated with the Army-Navy game. I found that I could not put the book down as I learned more about the people and as the Army Navy game approached. It's amazing to think of the leaders who came out of that team and that their brotherhood carries forward even today. It was an easy and very enjoyable read.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Great memories 2010/2/8
By Alexander J. Krekich - (
Michael Connelly captures the heart and soul of Navy's 1963 football team. As a player on that team I found his research to be outstanding in every respect. I also learned some information on Kennedy's assassination that had not passed by me before. This is a great book for those whose memories return to football in the 1960's when the college level was still seen as separate from the professional side. It is a very good read. Alex Krekich

5つ星のうち 5.0 The President's Team and JFK 2009/11/25
By K. Miller - (
If you have an interest in the famous Inter-Service rivalry, the Army/Navy game, I would highly recommend "The President's Team." The book describes, in interesting detail, all the football games played by Navy during the 1963 season, exactly 46 years since the assassination Of President Kennedy, himself, a WWII Naval hero. The book explains the relationship between "the Army Game" and the political climate of the time - a perfect blend of History and the lore of Service Academy football. Of particular interest to me was the section entitled "Where Are They Now." The author, Michael Connelly, devotes ample space to a series of thumbnail sketches of all the players associated with the 1963 team, since their graduation from the Naval Academy.

This book is a perfect Christmas gift for those readers interested in service academy athletic activities and their impact on World History of that era.

5つ星のうち 5.0 OUTSTANDING BOOK 2009/11/4
By Steve20 - (
Connelly does a remarkable job chronicling the Navy football team of 1963 with the JFK assassination as the backdrop. He intertwines accounts of JFK and the Kennedy family with the inspiring individuals that made up the Navy football team. The President's Team masterfully weaves the storylines into an extraordinary and moving book.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Must read 2010/1/19
By AKM - (
I didn't want the book to end! Michael Connelly weaves the characters of the story, facts about the personal side of President Kennedy with respect to his love of the Navy team, and the great rivalry of the football teams into a compelling story. It was a great read and he is a great author. I enjoyed the book very much.
