The US Army football team -better known as the Black Knights- surprised the University of Oklahoma after they left behind a picture-perfect example of how a winning team should behave, despite losing the game.

The Army lost to OU after a game that had many local fans on the edge of their seats.

University of Oklahoma senior associate athletic director Kenny Mossman was so impressed with the Army’s level of professionalism and class, he posted a photo to Facebook in order to show the world what West Point cadets are like.

“This is how Army left the visiting locker room,” he wrote, showing a pristinely-cleaned locker room that could have passed any barracks inspection.

The photo has been shared nearly 5,000 times, drawing praise from veterans and sports fans alike.

“No sense of entitlement,” Allison Barnes wrote of the Black Knights. “Great game”

The team is regularly praised for their professionalism and patriotism, particularly during a time when controversy rocks professional and collegiate football.
