Navy QB Reynolds honored by NAAA

September 17, 2013 | WNST Staff

Navy sophomore quarterback Keenan Reynolds was named the NAAA Athlete of the Week presented by Rolls Royce as he completed 10 of his 13 pass attempts for a career-high 233 yards and two touchdowns, while rushing for 109 yards in Navy’s 51-7 rout of Delaware.

Saturday marked the third time in his career that Reynolds went over 100 yards rushing and passing in the same game and his 233 yards passing was the most by a Navy quarterback since 2000 (Brian Broadwater against Tulane) and his 342 yards of total offense was the best by a Navy player since 2008 (Shun White against Towson).

Reynolds is the first Navy quarterback to pass for more than 200 yards and rush for more than 100 yards in a game since 2002 (Craig Candeto against Northwestern) and he has directed Navy to over 500 yards total offense in each of their first two games.  Navy has never had three-straight games of more than 500 yards of total offense.

The Mids are off this week before traveling to Bowling Green, Ky. to take on Western Kentucky. Navy has not started a season 3-0 since 2006.
