Michael “Momo” Kime ’10 has been named one of the three captains for the Army football team. Kime, Thomas Holloway, and Jarrett Mackey were voted 2013 captains by the players.
Kime, a lineman from Zionsville, Ind., will serve as the offensive captain for the Black Knights. He started 11 games at right tackle last season before an injury took him out of the lineup. He was a staple on an offensive line that led the nation in rushing and set Academy records for rushing yards, rushing yards per game and total offense.
As a sophomore, he played in five games with two starts, one at center and one at left tackle. He has lettered for three years.
At Culver Military, Kime was a three-year starter for the Eagles, playing center and noseguard. His senior year, he moved to middle linebacker on defense. He was named a top 25 selection by Indiana Gridiron Digest and the Indianapolis Colts. He lettered all four years in football and lacrosse and served as a captain of both teams.
His father, Bill, played football at Culver and West Point. He graduated from CMA in 1980 and Army in 1984. Bill was also a captain of the Army football team his senior year. It is believed this might be the first father-son combination to serve as captains of the football team. He is the grandson of Richard “Moose” Kime ’42, who died in December 2003.
Army will open the 2013 season on August 30 against Morgan State.
