Meet Edgar Allan Poe, the football player for Army

Football players are kind of like poets, in a way.

The 2015 Army-Navy Game has been excellent so far, and Army is giving heavily-favored Navy their best shot. The Cadets currently have a 17-14 lead at halftime over the Midshipmen, and took the lead on a pass play, of all things, to wide receiver Edgar Poe. Yes, his name is Edgar Poe, and his middle name is Allan, too.

Poe's actually a Junior, sharing the same name as his father, in addition to the famous poet. He was even called "The Raven" as a nickname in high school. A bit obvious, sure, but there's no need to dig deeper when this is just sitting there.
