"I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction: 'I served in the United States Navy.'" - President John F. Kennedy

Navy Wins 4th Straight Road Game - Takes it to Virginia

Navy - 47
Virginia - 9

The Navy offense put up 472 total yards in about a balanced game as we've ever seen Navy put up.

Andre Byrd had 125 yards rushing (breaking the 100 yard mark for the first time this season) on just 21 carries and 3 TDs as the Navy offense was just unstoppable.

Smith added 86 yards on 9 carries along with completing 18/24 passes for 247 yards and 3 TDs. Unfortunately, he threw 2 INTs as well, but the Navy defense was ready for the challenge as they held Virginia to converting just 4 of 14 3rd down situations and just one FG out of three tries in the redzone.

The Navy defense also scored their first TD of the season on a monstrous hit by FS Kwesi Mitchell that was scooped up by the Freshman sensation at defensive end Michael Robinson who proceeded to take the ball 58 yards for Navy's first TD.

Unfortunately for Navy, they lost yet another defensive player for the better part of the season. This time, Junior FS Kwesi Mitchell, who was taken off the field at the end of the 1st quarter, appears to have broken his collarbone and will be out for at least the next 4 weeks.

After last weeks ugly win against FIU, the Navy coaches refused to address the media last week, saying that they had too many things to prepare for and didn't have time.

This week, it appears that they once again won't address the media but promised an extended period of addressing the media after the bye week.


On the recruiting front, Navy has grabbed not one, but two new players to add to their recruiting class this season.

The first was the **** athlete, Marc Beck, from La Habra, California. The 7th best ranked athlete in the class, at 6'0" 190 lb, Marc comes into Navy as the highest rated recruit to ever commit to Navy since 2002 when websites such as Scout.com and Rivals.com started keeping track.

Along with Marc, a ** linebacker, Edward Irons, from Sanford, Maine committed to the Navy Academy. At 6'1" 228, he looks like the prototypical type of linebacker to man the middle for Navy's 3-4 defense.
