Junior safety Max DiDomenico led the Army’s defense in snaps played (59) and picked up his first interception in the season-opening game at Louisiana-Monroe.
The Black Knights played 27 players on defense including senior linebacker Hamilton Baker, who missed the 2022 season with an injury.
Senior apache Jimmy Ciarlo recorded his first career sack (Army’s only one of the game) and paced the Black Knights with seven tackles.
Senior cornerback Jabari Moore started his 35th game.
Could be mistaken but believe there was a ULM short screen pass prior to Max DiDomenico’s interception that didn’t make the play-by-play or stats hence the 63 plays and not 62 in box score.
