In more than 20 years of coaching, Ken Niumatalolo has watched many players develop and grow. And even though he is in the midst of his second season with Keenan Reynolds, the Navy coach is quite impressed by the sophomore quarterback. Niumatalolo shared a story about Reynolds after he threw for a career-high 233 yards and two touchdowns in the team's 51-7 demolition of Delaware Saturday at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium . “We eat by class - seniors, juniors, sophomores, freshmen - and we start off with the starters,” Niumatalolo said.

Buddy Green spent a total of four days at Anne Arundel Medical Center getting treatment for an undisclosed ailment. When the veteran defensive coordinator returned to Navy football practice Wednesday, it was suggested that spending too much time watching Western Kentucky's prolific offense prompted Green to hurry back to work. "Actually, watching Western Kentucky will put you back in the hospital," Green quipped. First-year coach Jeff Brohm has installed a pass-happy Hilltoppers attack that piles up yards and points at a rapid rate.

Ken Niumatalolo's voice typically goes up a couple octaves the more upset he becomes. After what transpired Saturday at Duke, Niumatalolo is inching closer to becoming a soprano. In what Niumatalolo described Monday as Navy's most disappointing defeat "in a long time," the Midshipmen were blown out by the Blue Devils, 35-7, after a scoreless first quarter. "We got our butts whipped from Notre Dame in Ireland [last year], but they have a few first-round draft picks," Niumatalolo said after practice in Annapolis.

Quarterback Keenan Reynolds came into the 2014 season as a dark-horse Heisman Trophy candidate, his reputation built as much on his reliability running the Navy football team's triple-option offense as on his big-play ability. Four games into his junior year, Reynolds has been neither as steady nor as spectacular as he was his first two seasons. Unfortunately for Navy, having a quarterback who is more human than heroic won't work as well as it did those two years, either. While Reynolds largely wasn't to blame for Saturday's 31-24 loss to Rutgers at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, he was the first to take his share of the responsibility.

As Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo and offensive coordinator Ivin Jasper broke down film from the team's 2012 season, they noticed that the Midshipmen didn't look out of sync when freshman quarterback Keenan Reynolds took the snap out of a shotgun formation. According to Jasper, it happened on "about 15" plays that he and Niumatalolo reviewed. Not only did the formation often catch the opposition by surprise, but Reynolds appeared even more comfortable than he did at times running Navy's trademark triple-option.

The blowout defeats the Navy football team suffered early this season are a distant memory, in the record books but no longer embedded in its collective psyche. The struggling offense and a quarterback plagued by turnovers are also no longer part of the game plan. They have been washed away by a three-game winning streak and an emerging star named Keenan Reynolds. Reynolds, the first freshman to start at quarterback at Navy in more than two decades, helped the Midshipmen erase an early 10-point deficit and, more significantly, a nine-point deficit in the final 12:18 to beat Indiana on Saturday, 31-30, at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium before an announced homecoming crowd of 33,441 that included NBA Hall of Famer David Robinson.

Middle Tennessee State linebacker Roderic Blunt issued a public apology Tuesday for his role in an incident during Navy's 24-6 win Monday in the Armed Forces Bowl in which Blunt was seen reaching into Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds' face mask after he was down and poking his eye. Blunt, who was not penalized after the third-quater play, was later ejected after his second of two unsportsmanlike-conduct penalties. Reynolds missed three plays while Navy staffers installed an emergency visor on his face mask.

Navy couldn't seem to handle its role as a two-touchdown favorite over Hawaii, a rare position for the Midshipmen during what has been now a decade of nearly uninterrupted success. Nor could Navy's defense handle Joey Iosefa, Hawaii's 245-pound Samoan tailback. Fortunately for the Midshipmen, the Rainbow Warriors had even more trouble Saturday slowing down Navy star Keenan Reynolds. The sophomore quarterback continued what already has been a remarkable career with his best performance to date.

The first college recruiting letter Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds received came from a school less than 30 miles from his home outside Nashville, Tenn. Reynolds wound up going to the tryout camp run by the school's coach after his junior year at Goodpasture Christian School. Reynolds thought he played pretty well, but he never heard from the coach again. Three years later, Reynolds will get another chance to impress Rick Stockstill when Navy (8-4) plays Middle Tennessee State (8-4)

The emotions and energy Navy puts into its annual game against Air Force typically takes a lot out of the Midshipmen for their next game. A year ago, after a controversial overtime loss to the Falcons in Annapolis, Navy was throttled the next week at home by Southern Mississippi, losing by 28 points. Beating its bitter rival, as Navy did last week in Colorado Springs, can also cause what Niumatalolo calls "being on Cloud 9" to linger. It happened in Niumatalolo's first season as head coach five years ago when the Midshipmen lost at home to Pittsburgh two weeks after a six-point win at Falcon Stadium.

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.

Baseball Nationals sign 1st-round pick but not 2nd-rounder The Washington Nationals signed first-round draft pick Erick Fedde with a bonus worth just over $2.5 million, a deal that softened the blow from the club's inability to sign its second-round pick. Fedde, the 18th pick overall, settled on rough terms with the Nationals on Friday around 2 p.m., three hours before the 5 p.m. deadline. A right-handed pitcher from Nevada-Las Vegas, Fedde played on the same high school team as Bryce Harper , who said Fedde has "the best slider I've ever seen.

Jamir Tillman learned early on not to overlook life after football. Tillman, a sophomore wide receiver at Navy, heard how his father Cedric began working as an accountant in Las Vegas during a six-year career in the National Football League that ended prematurely because of a back injury. "You never know when your last down of football is going to be," Tillman said. "I know coming here, it's not just about football, it's about your future and about being put around men that are going to develop you as a leader.

A few weeks before the 2013 football season started at Navy, Ken Niumatalolo sat in his office and talked about how it was the most talented bunch of Midshipmen he had been around as both the team's head coach and as an assistant under both Paul Johnson and Charlie Weatherbie. Going into his seventh season as head coach, Niumatalolo knows that this year's team - led by junior quarterback Keenan Reynolds - could be even better than the one that finished 9-4 last fall by sweeping its fellow service academies and topping off the season with a contentious bowl victory over Middle Tennessee State.

As the fourth quarter began in the Armed Forces Bowl, things looked a bit ugly for Navy. Locked in a tight, ugly, chippy game with Middle Tennessee State, the Midshipmen hadn't moved the ball well since the first quarter. And they had uncharacteristically hurt themselves with four fumbles, including two that were lost. Not to mention that they had lost their starting center and top two strong safeties to injuries and an ejection. As it turns out, Navy (9-4) had everything under control.

Navy quarterback Trey Miller was held out of practice Monday after sustaining an ankle injury in Saturday's 28-21 overtime win at Air Force. With his left foot in a boot, Miller watched as freshman Keenan Reynolds ran most of the drills in preparation of Friday's game at Central Michigan. Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo said before practice in Annapolis that the protection on Miller's foot was "a precaution" and he wouldn't know until seeing how the junior responds to treatment whether he will play this week.
