( At the 120th Army-Navy college football game at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pa. on Saturday, President Trump was greeted with cheers as referee Mike Roche thanked him for “all the good you do for our country,” prior to tossing the coin.

As the team captains met at midfield for the coin toss, Referee Mike Roche declared it a “great honor” to welcome the president:

“We're gathered here for the coin toss. It’s obviously with great pride, and great honor, to welcome our Commander-in-Chief, our president of the United States, President Donald J. Trump.”

“Mr. President, thank you for all that you do, all the good you do for our country. We thank you for joining us today to make this a special moment. This is a commemorative coin that we'll be using. The 120 logo will be the heads. The other side will be the tails. Army, since you are the visitor, it's your toss to call. Heads or tails. Heads is the call by Army. Again, Mr. President, thank you for joining us. Please do us the honor,” Roche said. “It is a tails. Navy has won the toss, elected to defer that option to the second half.”

“Army will begin the game by receiving in the southernmost end zone. Gentlemen, in honor for all the armed servicemen and women across the globe and in honor of our veterans, let’s shake hands and let's have a great day for football,” Roche concluded. 

Navy won the game 31-7 for their first win in the series since 2015.
