At Army, players need a toughness that goes beyond the normal value

Nov. 14, 2013

There is no correct formula for a coach to determine when his team is on the verge of becoming great. On paper, a team can be the greatest in his program's history, but their season can be derailed for a multitude of reasons. A team can look at their schedule and assume the worst, then defy those expectations and become the definition of a Cinderella story.

Without a correct formula, though, a coach needs to look at the roster and try to position them best for the correct jump. At Army, those challenges are tougher than normal.

Brian Riley has been the head coach since the 2004-05 season, and he's won a regular season championship in Atlantic Hockey at the helm of the Black Knights. He's also the third member of his family to coach the team, with his brother Rob leading West Point from 1986 through 2004, and his father, Jack, dating back further to the 1950-1951 season.
