Hall of Fame Football Academy hopes clinic turns up gold at Fort Knox

Fort Knox, Ky., the Army post where the majority of the nation’s gold reserves are kept, is one of only four Army bases that has its own high school.
The Fort Knox Eagles were a powerhouse football team in the mid-80s and early 90s, winning three state titles and playing for the state title five times. Declining numbers and shorter deployments, however, have adversely affected the team, which hasn’t had a winning season since 2002 and ended a 40-game losing streak in 2009.
