It's Time To Appreciate Keenan Reynolds

Keenan Reynolds' 2015 season at Navy was the finale of one of the most prolific careers of any player in college football history.

Report: Chip Kelly may have had interest in Navy job

    All indications are that the now-unemployed Chip Kelly will look to remain in the NFL, but apparently there may be a college gig or two that could catch his attention. The Navy job was said to be one of them. ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported in his “Six Points” column that “if the Navy job had come open, [Kelly] just may have been intrigued.” The Navy job nearly...

Keenan Reynolds and Navy go out on top

It is so easy to emphasize the negative in life, and this could have been the case for Keenan Reynolds and Navy heading into the Military Bowl on Monday afternoon against Pittsburgh. Navy did not win the American Athletic Conference’s West Division. It did not get to play in the first AAC Championship Game. It did not get a chance to play in the Peach or Fiesta Bowl. Navy’s Keenan...

Navy's Keenan Reynolds has record-setting day in Military Bowl win

When all is said and done, Keenan Reynolds may go down as not just the greatest quarterback in the history of the Naval Academy … but also the best player to ever suit up for the Midshipmen. Reynolds finished their 2015 season in convincing fashion, defeating Pittsburgh in the Military Bowl (played on the Annapolis, Maryland campus of the academy) as Reynolds set two NCAA records...

Navy’s Ken Niumatalolo Turns Down BYU Coaching Job, Will Stay With Midshipmen

After a 10-2 season that was just the third double digit win total in 137 seasons of Navy Midshipmen football, head coach Ken Niumatalolo was a hot commodity. One school that was looking closely was BYU, a school close to the coach’s heart as he and his family are devout Mormons. When it was all said and done, Niumatalolo decided to stay put and will be coaching the Midshipmen...

Report: Ken Niumatalolo was offered BYU job, but chose Navy

Niumatalolo, who is a devout member of the Church...

Would a move to BYU be in Ken Niumatalolo’s best career interests?

Navy just got done beating arch-rival Army for what seems like the millionth time in a row on Saturday (okay, its really only the 14th time in a row), but there was a bigger story afoot — the future of Navy head coach Ken Niumatalolo. Would he stay, or would he bolt for a chance at a fresh start somewhere else, somewhere where the competition is bigger and the standards still...

Why was Keenan Reynolds removed from Heisman Trophy fan ballot?

Keenan Reynolds isn’t receiving much mainstream consideration for the Heisman Trophy because the Navy quarterback doesn’t attend a power-conference school and his team isn’t undefeated. That hasn’t stopped college football fans from voting for the senior, but the overwhelming voting support apparently led site organizers to remove Reynolds—who was (and as of this writing...

The Navy Midshipmen had one of the best seasons they have had in recent years. They were in a conference for the first time in program history this year and they competed for the AAC West championship for majority of the year.
