WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama is congratulating the Naval Academy football team for winning the annual Commander in Chief's Trophy.

Obama notes Navy has now won the trophy in 10 of the last 13 years of the annual three-way rivalry between the Army, Navy and Air Force academies.

The president joked that Navy has won so often, it should put the award ceremony on its football schedule.

The president awarded the massive trophy at a ceremony at the White House on Wednesday.

He noted this is the last time he'll have the honor during his presidency and said he was honored to see it go to "one of the best teams in America."

He also wished them good luck getting the trophy back to Annapolis, Maryland, "because it's huge."
