  OCT 12 AMERICAN ATHLETIC CONFERENCE DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Terrell Adams, Navy, So., LB, Birmingham, Ala.,...Adams made his first career start, stepping in for injured all-conference linebacker Diego Fagot, and delivered a team-high nine tackles in Navy's 31-29 win against Temple. Working on a defense that was without five regular starters, Adams came up with the game's biggest defensive play as he knocked aside what would have been the game-tying two-point conversion with 1:02 remaining, allowing the Midshipmen to improve to 2-0 in The American. - American Athletic Conference Football

  09/23/20 - Dalen MorrisSr/2021, Navy, 6-1, 206 (DS#999 QB) + More +

  Dalen Morris worked hard for three years to become the starting quarterback for the Navy football team. He lost the coveted job after just one half of the season opener. Morris was shaky against BYU, appearing indecisive as both a runner and a passer. However, Navy's offensive woes in that embarrassing 55-3 loss were not entirely due to poor play by the quarterback. A total inability to block the Cougars was the main culprit as the Navy skill position players had no chance. However, it was Morris who got pulled at halftime and replaced by backup Perry Olsen. He didn't understand being singled out and questioned coach Ken Niumatalolo and offensive coordinator Ivin Jasper. "I felt like we needed a spark in that game," Niumatalolo said.

"I'm not saying [Morris] was the sole purpose why we got crushed by BYU because we got beat everywhere. I just didn't like the way he responded in that first game." One week later, Navy's starting and backup quarterbacks were both on the outs. Morris was benched in favor of freshman Xavier Arline. Olsen, a sophomore, transferred after being told he was dropping on the depth chart. Morris, a senior, instead chose to argue his case to Niumatalolo. "I told Dalen none of it's personal. I wish he'd played better [against BYU] because he's such a great kid," Niumatalolo said. "The truth was, he didn't play well. I thought he was a little rattled." - Capital Times

  The Navy Midshipmen overcame a 24-point second-half deficit to post the biggest comeback in school history, stealing a 27-24 win at Tulane. Bijan Nichols' 33-yard field goal as time expired helped Navy (1-1) even its record and earn the Reveal Suits National Team of the Week honor for games of the weekend of Sept. 19 as selected by the Football Writers Association of America. This is the fifth time for Navy to earn the Team of the Week honor and the first since 2016. All Division I FBS and FCS schools are eligible to be selected. This is the 19th season for the FWAA to award a Team of the Week.

Navy ran just two plays in Tulane territory in the first half and looked as if it might suffer another blowout, trailing 24-0 at halftime after falling 55-3 to BYU in its opener. An interception deep in its own territory turned the game when Cameron Kinley picked off a pass at the Navy 3-yard line. Navy found its offensive rhythm from there, scoring 16 points in the last parts of the third quarter on two short Nelson Smith touchdowns and a safety. Navy outgained Tulane 291-82 in the second half. Tulane left the door open with five minutes left, failing to convert a fourth-down pass at the Navy 32. Navy drove to the Tulane 16 from there to set up Nichols' kick. Jamale Carothers rushed for 127 yards on 25 carries, and quarterback Dalen Morris, the starter in the opener but coming off the bench to replace Myles Fells here, used six completions to gain 139 yards and a touchdown. - American Athletic Conference Football

  SEPT 21 AMERICAN ATHLETIC CONFERENCE DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Diego Fagot, Navy, Jr., LB, Snellville, Ga.,...Fagot led a Navy defense that held Tulane to 82 total yards and no points in the second half, allowing the Midshipmen to rally for a 27-24 road victory in the American Athletic Conference opener. Fagot registered nine tackles to go with 2.0 tackles for loss, a sack and two pass breakups as Navy overcame the largest deficit to win in program history (24 points). - American Athletic Conference Football

  SEPT 21 AMERICAN ATHLETIC CONFERENCE CO-SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYERS OF THE WEEK: Bijan Nichols, Navy, So., K, Heath, Texas,...Nichols scored five points, but delivered a victory for Navy in the Midshipmen's American Athletic Conference opener at Tulane as his 33-yard field goal as time expired gave Navy its only lead in a 27-24 come-from-behind win. It was the second consecutive season in which Navy topped the Green Wave on a Nichols field goal at the final gun as this year's kick capped the Midshipmen's comeback from a 24-0 halftime deficit. - American Athletic Conference Football

  Jamale Carothers rushed for 125 yards, Bijan Nichols kicked a 33-yard field goal as time expired, and Navy staged a school-record 24-point comeback in the second half to beat Tulane 27-24 on Saturday. Navy (1-1, 1-0 American), which lost its opener 55-3 to BYU, ran just two plays in Tulane territory in the first half and looked in danger of being blown out again late in the second quarter. Tulane (1-1, 0-1) was threatening to build on a 24-0 lead before Cameron Kinley intercepted Tulane quarterback Keon Howard at the Navy 3. The turnover looked far more consequential as the game wore on and Navy stunningly seized control of the game in the second half, when the Midshipmen outgained the Green Wave 291 yards to 82.

In the last seven minutes of the third quarter, the Midshipmen scored 16 points on two short Nelson Smith touchdowns and a safety. They tied it on Dalen Morris' 32-yard touchdown pass to Mychal Cooper, followed by a 2-point conversion early in the fourth quarter. Tulane looked primed to regain the lead with about five minutes left, but elected to throw a deep pass, which fell incomplete, on fourth-and-3 from the Navy 32. Navy kept the ball from there, driving in rainy conditions to the Tulane 16 before kicking for the win. - AP College Football

  Navy football has been blessed with a few terrific fullback combinations during the current triple-option era. Adam Ballard and Eric Kettani shared the position for two seasons (2006, 2007), while Noah Copeland and Chris Swain formed a dangerous duo from 2012 through 2014. The Midshipmen enter the 2020 campaign with a pairing that could prove quite productive. Jamale Carothers and Nelson Smith split time at fullback last season and rushed for a combined 1,305 yards and 21 touchdowns. Fullbacks coach Jason MacDonald thinks both Carothers and Smith will be even better based off experience and a better understanding of Navy's system. McDonald smiled broadly when asked how much time he's spent thinking about the best way to utilize the one-two punch. "More than I would have liked. Things like that consume your mind and you tend to overthink more than you should," MacDonald said. "With the balance they've had in practice, I think we're headed right where we want to be." Having two talented fullbacks leads to increased competition. Carothers and Smith have become close friends while challenging each other. "Me and Nelson have a great relationship. We push each other every day in practice and try to complement each other as best we can," Carothers said. "We both know we have to come out every day and produce. Every day I'm motivated to get better." - Capital Times

  08/01/20 - Malcolm PerrySr/2020, Navy, 5-09, 186 (DS#22 RB) + More +

  Former Navy football standout Malcolm Perry is doing his part to combat coronavirus. Perry, who is now a member of the Miami Dolphins, acknowledged this week that he contracted and recovered from COVID-19. The Tennessee native, who reported to the Dolphins team facility on Monday, participated in a team initiative aimed at helping others recover from the virus. Perry was among several Miami players that donated blood plasma as part of a partnership with Baptist Health South Florida. "I was surprised initially but was happy because I was presented with the opportunity to give back and donate plasma and help people in need," Perry said during a video posted to the team website. "Being able to give back to people who weren't fortunate enough to react the same way you did to the virus and give back to the community was important." - Capital Times

  2020 BRONKO NAGURSKI TROPHY PRESEASON WATCH LIST: LB Diego Fagot, Navy,...Fagot is one of six players from the American Athletic Conference on the watch list joining Darrick Forest of Cincinnati, Richie Grant of UCF, Ifeanyi Maijeh of Temple, Aaron Robinson of UCF and James Wiggins of Cincinnati. Fagot, who is also on the watch list for the Bednarik Award and was named a preseason Third Team All-American by Phil Steele, is coming off a dominant sophomore campaign that saw him start all 13 contests for a Navy team that finished 11-2, won the Commander-In-Chief's Trophy and beat Kansas State in the Liberty Bowl. The Mids finished the year ranked 20th in both polls. A big part of Navy's success last year was the defense as the Mids improved in nearly every defensive category, including third down defense (121st to 20th), rushing defense (90th to 10th), total defense (86th to 16th) and scoring defense (103rd to 34th). - Navy Football
