2014 Finalist

Daniel Ragsdale / The Crazy Colonel

Army Black Knights


Known to all Cadets and nearly all fans of Army Athletics, the Crazy Colonel has been a fixture at Army Football and Basketball games for the past 15+ years. He never fails to inspire the Corps of Cadets and other Army fans to loudly demonstrate their support for the Army team. Last year the Corps of Cadets honored him by having T-shirt with his image made for all 4,400 Cadets. These shirts have subsequently made their way around the globe and a limited sale helped to raise ~$4000 for Soldier charities. The Army Athletic department acknowledged the Crazy Colonel's long-term dedicated support by featuring his image on the 40,000 tickets printed for last year's Army-Eastern Michigan game.
