Crab Bowl Trophy to be presented to winner

There will be more at stake during Monday's season opener between Navy and Maryland than just in-state bragging rights. For the first time, a trophy will be presented to the winner of the game that's being deemed the Crab Bowl in honor of the crustacean delicacy so beloved in the Old Line State.

The pewter trophy was commissioned by the Touchdown Club of Annapolis with underwriting from the D'Camera group and features replicas of Chesapeake Bay blue crabs overflowing from a large bowl. The bowl rests atop a mahogany base that will be engraved with results from the past 20 Maryland-Navy games.

Founded in 1954, the Touchdown Club has a long history with both programs. Its annual awards dinner honors the top players from both schools and has been held for 56 years.

"It will be a great atmosphere," Navy Coach Ken Niumatalolo said of the Labor Day game between the schools. "We know the stakes are high. It's like a bowl game."
