The first time Keenan Reynolds saw a Navy football game, the Midshipmen were three-touchdown underdogs to sixth-ranked Ohio State in the 2009 season opener. Reynolds was a sophomore at Goodpasture Christian School outside Nashville, Tenn., and was barely on anyone's recruiting radar. As he watched the game on television, Reynolds started paying attention to Navy quarterback Ricky Dobbs. Dobbs, then a junior who had just taken over as the starter, nearly led the Midshipmen to an upset win in Columbus.

Ricky Dobbs holds a special place in the recent history of Navy football. In the two seasons he started at quarterback, he led the Midshipmen in rushing and put up more than respectable numbers passing. He led the team to 10- and nine-win seasons. He helped Navy twice beat Notre Dame, as well as Missouri in a bowl game. He nearly beat Ohio State at "The Horseshoe. " As a result, Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo and offensive coordinator Ivin Jasper have been hesitant to compare any of their team's quarterbacks since to Dobbs.

Ricky Dobbs has spent his first two years at the Naval Academy doing more praying than playing. The prayers have come for his mother, Barbara Cobb, who has been beset by serious medical problems after a history of drug abuse. They have come for his uncle, Lewis Cobb, who died last year of cancer. Dobbs, a sophomore quarterback from Douglasville, Ga., has also prayed for himself - that his decision to play for Navy would turn out to be right. That first happened when Dobbs spent a year at the Naval Academy Preparatory School in Newport, R.I. Unsure about the postgraduation military commitment, unhappy about splitting time between quarterback and fullback, and just plain uncomfortable so far from home, Dobbs called Joe D'Allesandris, an assistant at Georgia Tech who had recruited him. "He [D'Allesandris]

Navy offensive coordinator Ivin Jasper is a former quarterback and knows the challenges that come with making decisions in the triple option. He tries to keep that in mind when he watches junior quarterback Ricky Dobbs lead the offense. But Jasper was visibly frustrated with some of Dobbs' decision-making in Navy's 27-14 loss at Pittsburgh on Saturday. The Midshipmen never got on track offensively and finished with just 218 yards of total offense and 129 yards on the ground, the fifth-lowest total since Paul Johnson introduced the triple option at Navy in 2002.

ANNAPOLIS -- For Perry Hall's Angie Dobbs, it was love at first sight.She was only in second grade at the time, but on a class trip here, she was smitten. All she wanted from then on was to attend the Naval Academy."I was in awe," Dobbs said.Never wavering in her resolve, she began collecting Navy paraphernalia, such as catalogs instructing candidates how to apply for admission. At home, she still has catalogs for every year from 1978 on.Today Dobbs is a Navy senior, captain of the women's basketball team and No. 3 on the all-time list of scorers with 1,427 points going into tonight's game here against Lafayette and a chance to become No. 2.

Quarterback Ricky Dobbs recovered nicely from last week's poor showing against Pittsburgh, leading Navy to a 38-22 victory over Western Kentucky in front of 29,009 on the 50th anniversary of the first game at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. He had a hand in all five Navy touchdowns and reached at least 100 yards in both rushing and passing. "I thought Ricky did some great things," Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo said. "That's the nature of being a quarterback. When things are going good, he gets a lot of the credit, and deservedly so. When things go bad, he gets a lot of the [blame]

The emergence of Ricky Dobbs as Navy's starting quarterback has been a steady process, evolving over the past month as the sophomore from Douglasville, Ga., kept overcoming mistakes on the practice field with big plays in games. After Dobbs nearly led his team to its second straight 20-point, fourth-quarter comeback in Saturday's 27-21 loss to Notre Dame at M&T Bank Stadium, coach Ken Niumatalolo said Dobbs could start the team's next game, Nov. 25 at Northern Illinois. Asked what Dobbs' chances were to start, Niumatalolo said, "With what he did at the end, probably good at this point."

Shortly after Navy quarterback Kaipo-Noa Kaheaku-Enhada reinjured his hamstring and left Saturday's game against Temple with five minutes to go in the third quarter, many fans at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium did the same. Those who departed early missed what Kaheaku-Enhada saw from the sideline - the biggest fourth-quarter comeback in school history. With sophomore Ricky Dobbs looking more and more like the quarterback of the present rather than of the future, and with some help from the Owls, the Midshipmen stunned Temple, 33-27, in overtime.

Standing on the home team's sideline at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium early Saturday night, Ricky Dobbs had a feeling that he was reliving his past. "I was thinking, 'Yeah, this looks all so familiar,' " Dobbs recalled in a telephone interview Tuesday night. Dobbs, Navy's record-setting former quarterback who is now coaching at the academy's prep school, was watching sophomore Trey Miller lead the Midshipmen on a wild fourth-quarter comeback against East Carolina. Miller had come in when senior Kriss Proctor suffered a dislocated elbow in the second quarter.

— As he was trying to get on Navy's recruiting radar five years ago, Kriss Proctor failed to convince a major skeptic that going to the academy was the right move. When Sandie Proctor refused to send her younger son's highlight tape out to the coaches in Annapolis, Kriss Proctor snuck one in the mail to Navy defensive end Matt Nechak, a family friend and fellow Southern Californian. Even during her son's recruiting visit, Proctor's mother was steadfast, despite his insistence on playing for the Midshipmen and commiting to at least five years in the military after graduation.

The natural instinct is to think that former star quarterback Ricky Dobbs is the reason sophomore defensive end Jamel Dobbs is playing football at Navy, given that they are distant cousins who grew up near each other in the suburbs of Atlanta. Truth is, Jamel Dobbs never met his famous namesake until he showed up on his recruiting visit two years ago. Neither knew of any connection until assistant coach Ashley Ingram, who recruited both players, raised the possibilities and the players started talking about their respective families.

Fox Business Network's Lou Dobbs and his so-called "A Team" analysts on Wednesday mocked legislation proposed by U.S. Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) and U.S. Rep. Barney Frank (D.-Mass.) that would decriminalize marijuana on a federal level and leave its legality to individual states.  On Thursday, the congressmen plan to introduce their bill, which would "limit the federal government's role in marijuana enforcement to cross-border or inter-state smuggling, and allow people to legally grow, use or sell marijuana in states where it is legal," according to AFP.  This legislation could be seen in a positive light (many could view it as a pro-business, pro-freedom, pro-criminal justice, states-rights or constitutionally-accurate move)

For two seasons, Navy quarterback Kriss Proctor was a more-than-capable replacement when starter Ricky Dobbs went down with an injury. He stepped in to lead the Midshipmen to a pair of wins in three career starts, and when Dobbs returned to full health, stepped back to the sidelines just as quickly. Now, with Dobbs' illustrious college career completed, Proctor enters his senior season listed as QB1 on coach Ken Niumatalolo's depth chart, taking the keys to Navy's triple-option offense and trying to continue the success he saw in his previous role.

Justin Trattou turned the Florida Citrus Bowl into his own version of The Swamp. Trattou was part of an East defense that wreaked havoc Saturday at the 86th East-West Shrine Game, holding the West to 126 total yards and forcing four turnovers leading to a 19-8 win. Florida's captain had four tackles, two for a loss, and a sack. He teamed up with defensive MVP Martin Parker from Richmond to put on a dominating performance that saw the East sack West quarterbacks six times. "All week we were told that we were great players and that we could go out there and change the game and it came true," Parker said.

Ricky Dobbs is aware of the pressure he faces this season as he steps in as Navy's full-time starting quarterback. So the junior, who dazzled at times last season off the bench, tries to avoid reading newspaper articles or listening to radio reports about his role with the Midshipmen. But this week, junior wide receiver Mario Washington showed him an article that pegged Navy's success - and potential seventh straight bowl bid - to Dobbs' performance this fall. "It's all on him," said Washington, one of Dobbs' close friends.

Dobbs faces more hurdles than any other player in the 86th East-West Shrine Game on Saturday at Orlando's Citrus Bowl. Kickoff is set for 4 p.m,. and NFL Network will televise the contest. While the rest of the players in the game will head to pre-NFL draft training programs, Dobbs will return to school to complete his degree. He will then begin a two-year service obligation before he is eligible to pursue an NFL career.
