The Rimington Trophy Committee proudly announced Lieutenant General (R) Robert L. Caslen, Jr. '75 as the 13th recipient of the Gerald R. Ford Legends Award for his distinguished service and leadership in the U.S. armed forces.
After being created in 2005 by the Rimington Trophy and the office of President Gerald R. Ford, the Ford Legends Award has been presented annually to a former collegiate or professional center who, like the award's namesake, distinguished himself above and beyond the football field.
"I am honored to receive this award, particularly under the namesake of President Gerald R. Ford," Caslen said." Knowing the character of President Ford and what he stood for makes it even more special. I have always admired how he filled in as our President when our Nation needed him the most. And it was an honor to have had him as my West Point class' graduation speaker in 1975. I also want to thank the Boomer Esiason Foundation for the work that they do with this award, and I look forward to working with them as well." Read More
