Steveo’s Salvos – Navy QB Keenan Reynolds for the 2016 Sullivan Award

  • Keenan Reynolds
  • Sport: College Football (Navy Midshipmen)
  • Hometown: Antioch, Tenn.
  • Biography: Keenan Reynolds is the finest Navy football player since Roger Staubach in 1963. He led Navy to a school record 11 wins against just two losses and a national ranking of No. 18, which is Navy highest final ranking in the AP poll in more than 50 years. Reynolds finished fifth in the Heisman Trophy voting and was named third-team All-American. He is the all-time leader in touchdowns scored (88) and rushing yards by a quarterback (4,559), and led the Navy senior class to a school-record 36 wins. Well-respected by his peers, Reynolds was made a unanimous captain for the 2016 East-West Shrine Game and went on to win the Pat Tillman Award, which is presented to a player who best exemplifies character, intelligence, sportsmanship and service.

We at collegefootballfan.com enjoyed watching Keenan Reynolds lead the Navy football program for the past four years and witnessed his tremendous athletic skills and leadership capabilities to lead a great Navy football program as he humbly and deservedly attributed all his success to his teammates.  He finished fifth in the Heisman balloting and was in absentia for the ceremony in New York City leading the Mids to their fourth straight win over Army in all four years he started as Navy’s QB.  After graduation from the US Naval Academy in Annapolis this spring, he will be serving as an Ensign in the U.S. Navy – truly deserving the 86th Annual Sullivan Award for the nation’s outstanding  amateur athlete in 2016.  Click on the link below to cast you ballot for this great honor recognizing his achievements as a great college football player.

About Steveo

This website is dedicated to my unique and ongoing adventure to continue to see every major Division 1A (I despise the moniker "FBS") football team play in person at least once. I've seen all 124 teams in existence as of 2013 play and plan to attend games with the five newest editions in the next few years. This also records my ongoing adventures attending as many college football games as possible every season. I "officially" started this crazy goal in 1979. The upcoming 2014 season will be the 35th straight year of sharing this fun endeavor with others in person and through weekly reviews about each game I attend. Entering 2014, I have attended 459 NCAA football games at all levels. My book, Tales from the Tailgate: From the Fan who's seen 'em all! published in 2011, tells my story over 30 years of when I attended a game in person played by each D1A team for the first time. Now, I haven't attended a game at every major stadium on each campus (yet) because I'd probably be unemployed and definitely divorced by now. However, I'm proud to report that I remain gainfully employed and have been married to the same woman ("Saint Laurie") for almost 25 years. We have two kids that have recently ventured away from our home in Byram Township, NJ over the last few few years. Our daughter Alex is a junior at the University of South Carolina (Go Gamecocks!), and our son Eric is now enlisted in the United States Navy (Go Navy!). You will find that my site and my book focus on enjoying a passion for college football and great opportunities to have fun with friends and family around the country.
