  08/21/21 - Tama TuiteleJr/2023, Navy, 6-0, 249 (DS#999 ILB) + More +

  Navy inside linebacker Tama Tuitele has entered the NCAA transfer portal, according to a published report. Rivals.com reported via its NCAA Transfer Portal Twitter feed that Tuitele, a junior who played in 14 career games for the Midshipmen, was considering a transfer. Navy athletics spokesman Scott Strasemeier declined to comment on the report, stating that Tuitele remains on the football roster. Tuitele, like all juniors, is due to sign the two-for-seven papers binding midshipmen to two more years at the Naval Academy and five years of military service. Tuitele can leave the academy with no repercussions before signing those papers before classes start for the fall semester. Tuitele's career at Navy has been beset by injuries. The Colorado native started four of six games as a freshman before suffering a season-ending injury against South Florida. He totaled 19 tackles that season and led the team with five solo stops against Memphis. - Capital Times

  Navy football finished seventh in the American Athletic Conference standings last season. Apparently, media members covering the conference think the Midshipmen will fall further toward the cellar in 2021. Navy was predicted to finish in a tie for eighth place in the 11-team league in the preseason media poll that was released Wednesday morning, as the Midshipmen and East Carolina both received 85 votes. Cincinnati, which finished the 2020 season ranked No. 8 nationally, has been tabbed as the preseason favorite. "We're picked low pretty much every year. I don't worry too much about what people say," Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo said during Wednesday's virtual AAC Football Media Day. "Let people pick us where they want to pick us. We'll just keep our mouths quiet and grind."

Since joining the AAC in 2015, Navy has compiled an overall conference record of 30-17. The Midshipmen captured the West Division outright in 2016 and finished in a tie for first in 2015 and 2019. Navy ranks fourth behind Memphis (34-14), Temple (31-16) and Central Florida (31-17) for most wins over the last six seasons. "I'm not worried about preseason polls; I'm just worried about our preparation, and I like where we're at right now," he said. "We'll be ready Sept. 4 when the first game comes." - Capital Times

  06/06/21 - Cameron KinleySr/2021, Navy, 6-1, 201 (DS#23 FS) + More +

  Recent Naval Academy graduate Cameron Kinley will not be allowed to pursue professional football as the current Secretary of the Navy is not adhering to a policy put in place by the Trump administration. Kinley signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent on May 1 and has been seeking permission to play in the National Football League ever since. The United States Navy approved Kinley's request to participate in Tampa Bay's rookie-free agent minicamp late last month.

However, Secretary of the Navy Thomas W. Harker has now denied Kinley's request to delay his commission and is requiring the Naval Academy Class of 2021 president to begin serving as an ensign. Ryan Williams-Jenkins, a former Navy football player who is Kinley's agent, made the announcement on Monday. Williams-Jenkins said the Navy will not allow Kinley to appeal the decision. Denying Cameron a fair process will also deny him the dream of playing in the NFL, Williams-Jenkins said in a press release issued Monday at noon. - Capital Times

  Kevin Brennan, Mychal Cooper, Diego Fagot and Chance Warren were almost unanimous selections as captains of the Navy football team. Those four rising seniors were also unanimous when asked what it means to be voted captain by teammates. To a man, they called it the highest honor they have received to date. "It's a great honor and one of the things I'll hold onto for the rest of my life because it's not something you did, it's your teammates voting you in and that humbles me," Fagot said. "We all feel blessed to be in the position to represent the team as a whole."

Warren and Cooper were chosen as the offensive captains with Brennan and Fagot as their defensive counterparts. They were voted as captains earlier this month, shortly after Navy spring camp concluded. "I'm very excited about our captains and I'm really excited about this team. These four have really made an effort during the spring to bring the team together and that's been a big priority for them," Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo said. "Also, nobody outworks these four on the field and when your best players are your hardest workers, you have a chance to be good." - Capital Times

  05/04/21 - Cameron KinleySr/2021, Navy, 6-1, 201 (DS#23 FS) + More +

  Tears of disappointment quickly turned into tears of joy for former Navy football player Cameron Kinley on Saturday night. When the NFL Draft ended and Kinley had not been selected, he was down in the dumps. He took a walk around the block with a cousin who offered words of encouragement. After having a good cry and coming to grips with the possibility his dream of playing professional football might be over, Kinley received a series of phone calls from his agent. Ryan Williams-Jenkins, who played football at the Naval Academy and is a 2014 graduate, informed Kinley the Kansas City Chiefs were interested in signing him as a preferred free agent. Kinley was naturally elated and told Williams-Jenkins to make the deal.

Moments later, Williams-Jenkins called back to tell Kinley the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were also offering a free agent contract. "Let's go to Tampa," said Kinley, who knew a member of that team's coaching staff. Tampa Bay inside linebackers coach Mike Caldwell played football at Middle Tennessee State University with Kinley's father, Richard. "I just felt more comfortable going down there knowing someone on coaching staff," Kinley said. - Capital Times

  03/25/21 - Diego FagotSr/2022, Navy, 6-2, 240 (DS#31 ILB) + More +

  Diego Fagot delivered an interesting history lesson when asked to explain the origins of the Navy football team motto for the 2021 season. Fagot and other rising senior leaders settled on "Burn the Boats" as a motivational slogan to begin using during the grueling winter strength and conditioning workouts known as "fourth quarters." Navy's standout inside linebacker referenced that motto several times during an online news conference to discuss spring camp, which will now begin Friday. "We're really trying to emphasize those three words. We need to leave everything off the field and focus on what we have at hand," Fagot said. "Our class is really trying to emphasize the mentality piece because there is so much going on around us. Last season, there was just so much stuff happening off the field that it affected us on the field." - Capital Times
