Obama to award trophy to AF Academy football team

President Barack Obama meets with some of the troops Monday, but not the usual kind or for the usual reasons.

Obama will present the Commander-in-Chief Trophy to the Air Force Academy football team in the Rose Garden. The Falcons won the trophy in early November by beating West Point, 42-22.

Later, the president sits down for interviews with reporters from TV stations in Denver, Dallas, Indianapolis and Raleigh, N.C. He'll also meet with Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton in the Oval Office.
