The Commander in Chief’s Trophy, named after The President of the United States, is on a different level from all other college football rivalry trophies. General George Simler, former Athletic Director of The United States Air Force, established the trophy with the hopes of fostering the annual rivalry between our nation’s 3 service academies. First awarded in 1972 by President Nixon, the trophy is most often awarded in a ceremony at The White House.
The Commander in Chief’s Trophy stands about 30 inches and checks in at 75 lbs. The trophy sits on a circular base and is divided into three sections, one dedicated to each academy.
We’re honored to have the opportunity to create a replica of The Commander in Chief’s Trophy. Our version checks in at 17 inches tall, 11 inches wide and weighs 10 pounds.
