Kettani, a former Naval Academy running back who graduated in 2009, made the practice squad of the New England Patriots last summer only to learn that his waiver from his active-duty obligation was denied by Juan Garcia, assistant Navy secretary for manpower and reserve affairs. Kettani returned to his old ship, the frigate Klakring. Navy Secretary Ray Mabus approved Kettani's appeal, Navy spokeswoman Lt. Cmdr. Tamara Lawrence said Tuesday. As part of the agreement, Kettani will have to repay the Navy roughly $60,000 for the cost of his academy education and training and will serve in the Naval Reserve for up to seven years, the Navy Times reported.
