The 1904 Army Cadets football team represented the United States Military Academy in the 1904 college football season; in their first season under head coach Robert Boyers, the Cadets compiled a 7–2 record, shut out five of their nine opponents, and outscored all opponents by a combined total of 136 to 27.[1] The team's two losses were to Harvard and Princeton; in the annual Army–Navy Game, the Cadets defeated the Midshipmen 11–0.[2]

Five members of the squad were honored by one or both of Walter Camp (WC) and Caspar Whitney (CW) on the All-America team. They are: center Arthur Tipton (WC-1, CW-1); back Henry Torney (CW-1); end Alexander Garfield Gillespie (WC-2); halfback Frederick Prince (CW-2); and tackle Thomas Doe (WC-3).[3][4][5]
