The Midshipmen fell to a fellow service academy on 9/11/2021. The Midshipmen are continuing their struggle finding their groove with a man at center to lead their offense. With sophomore quarterback Tai Lavatai, out due to a knee injury from last weeks game Xavier Airline struggled to find his way up the field.
The defense took several hits this week including both starting Safetys out due to leg injuries. Midshipmen Mitchell West tore his ACl in the first half of the game while Kevin Brennan tweaked his leg, but we are waiting for a verdict from the team doctor. Kevin and Mitchell are both seniors this year feeling a mental and physical burden from Saturdays game.
The Navy football squad felt burdens from this game not only on the field but within the coaching staff. Following the game, offensive coordinater Ivan Jasper was fired from his position leaving the team wondering whats next. Will this staffing change help Navy finally get back on their feet as a program?
