  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

  07/26/20 - Diego FagotJr/2022, Navy, 6-2, 240 (DS#999 ILB) + More +

  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

  2020 PRESEASON DOAK WALKER AWARD WATCH LIST: Jamale Carothers (Jr.), Navy,...Carothers was one of the best stories in college football in 2019, starting the year on the junior varsity team and not seeing any meaningful stats until Navy's game at Tulsa on Oct. 12. Carothers burst on to the scene that night in Oklahoma, carrying the ball five times for 52 yards and a touchdown and catching a 26-yard halfback pass from CJ Williams.

Carothers went on to start six games at fullback and finished the year as Navy's second-leading rusher with 734 yards on 111 carries and 14 touchdowns, while catching four passes for 105 yards and two touchdowns. He finished the year ranked 16th in the country in rushing touchdowns and 11th in scoring (9.6 points per game). His 6.61 rushing yards per carry stood as the seventh best mark in the country. He was named First Team All-East for his efforts. - Navy Football

  05/31/20 - David ForneySr/2020, Navy, 6-2, 305 (DS#23 OG) + More +

  Former Navy football player David Forney died of cardiac arrest and natural causes, the state's medical examiner has concluded. Charles L Gischlar, deputy director of media relations for the Maryland Department of Health, issued a statement after receiving the information from the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. "The cause of death for Mr. Forney is sudden cardiac death in the setting of multiple cardiac anomalies, and the manner of death is natural," Gischlar said. Forney, a first class midshipman at the Naval Academy, had the heart attack on Feb. 20 in his dormitory room at Bancroft Hall. The 22-year-old Walkersville resident was found unresponsive by his roommates.

A CPR-certified midshipman administered resuscitation efforts at the recommendation of first responders en route to Bancroft Hall. Emergency services transported Forney to Anne Arundel Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 11:28 p.m. Forney was a three-year letterman for the football team and played in 39 consecutive games over his final three seasons. The 6-foot-3, 305-pound lineman blossomed as a senior - starting all 13 games at left guard as Navy led the nation in rushing with an average of 360.5 yards per game. - Capital Times

  As expected, former football standout Malcolm Perry was not commissioned as part of the Naval Academy commencement ceremonies held over the past couple weeks. Perry, who was selected by the Miami Dolphins in the seventh round of the NFL Draft, attended his assigned swearing-in event on May 20 but was not commissioned as a Marine Corps officer. The Naval Academy conducted five private commissioning ceremonies over the span of 10 days with the senior class being divided into groups of 200. Sitting in socially distanced chairs set up in Tecumseh Court, the Class of 2020 graduates officially became Navy ensigns or Marine Corps second lieutenants.

Perry, the record-setting starting quarterback on the Navy football team, graduated with his class and received a degree in quantitative economics. However, the Tennessee native did not take the oath of office or sign the required paperwork to become a Marine Corps officer, according to Naval Academy public affairs officer Commander Alana Garas. Perry is hoping to become the first service academy athlete to benefit from a new Department of Defense policy that allows them to pursue professional sports immediately after graduation. - Capital Times

  05/21/20 - Michael McMorrisJr/2022, Navy, 5-09, 160 (DS#999 CB) + More +

  Navy football's ongoing saga with the NCAA transfer portal has taken another turn as a second player in the span of a week has changed his mind about leaving the academy. Cornerback Michael McMorris has decided to pull his name out of the transfer portal and remain at the Naval Academy for the 2020-2021 school year. McMorris has been reinstated to Navy's official roster, and an athletic department spokesman confirmed he is part of the team. The Capital reported in mid-March that McMorris had entered the transfer portal and he seemingly confirmed the news himself by posting a link to the story to his Twitter feed. Having just completed his sophomore year of school, McMorris could have left the Naval Academy without penalty.

McMorris has completed the spring semester at the academy and the coaching staff is hopeful he will be eligible to play during the upcoming season, whenever that is held. "I think Mikey went through a rough patch and was struggling with some of the same things every midshipman struggles with," Navy defensive coordinator Brian Newberry said on Thursday. "I always thought there was a chance Mikey would stay, and I'm really glad he did. He's a really good football player and will help win football games." McMorris made the decision to remain at the academy one week after safety Chelen Garnes elected to leave. The Capital reported last week that Garnes, who played in all 13 games as a freshman, reentered the transfer portal. - Capital Times

  04/18/20 - Malcolm PerrySr/2020, Navy, 5-09, 186 (DS#22 RB) + More +

  Malcolm Perry has done everything in his power to position himself as a National Football League prospect. Unfortunately, due to the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic, Navy's record-setting quarterback was not able to do as much as planned to impress scouts and general managers. Perry was supposed to audition for NFL teams during the Navy Pro Day on March 25. That was canceled after the Naval Academy announced the Brigade of Midshipmen would not be returning to campus following spring break. Perry, 5-foot-9 and 190 pounds, had also been invited to attend combines held by the Philadelphia Eagles, Baltimore Ravens, Washington Redskins and Tennessee Titans at each organization's respective facilities, and there were some other NFL franchises that planned to send scouts to the Naval Academy to conduct a private workout. All those sessions were canceled.

There is no telling how the inability to scrutinize Perry more closely will impact the decision-making of general managers going into the NFL Draft, which begins on Thursday. "It's definitely frustrating to miss out on opportunities to get in front of NFL teams and show what I can do," Perry told Baltimore Sun Media this week. "Hopefully, the scouts have seen enough to have a good idea of who I am and what I am capable of as a player." - Capital Times

  02/21/20 - David ForneySr/2020, Navy, 6-2, 305 (DS#23 OG) + More +

  David Forney, a star lineman for Navy's record-breaking offense, was found dead in his dormitory, the cause of death undisclosed. He was 22. He was discovered unresponsive in Bancroft Hall on Thursday night, academy officials said. "We are devastated to have lost one of our brothers," Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo said. "We all loved - and will always love - David." Forney was a senior and three-year letter winner. He played in 39 consecutive games over his final three seasons. He started all 13 games at guard in 2019 as part of an offensive line that set a school record with a nation-leading 360.5 yards rushing per game. He was part of a senior class that helped Navy win 11 games and capture the Commander-In-Chief's Trophy, awarded annually to the team with the best record in games involving Navy, Army and Air Force. Forney was named First-Team American Athletic Conference. - AP College Football

  2020 NFL COMBINE INVITE: Malcolm Perry, RB, Navy,...Perry rushed for an Army-Navy Game record 304 yards and two touchdowns in Navy's 31-7 rout of Army as he helped bring the Commander-In-Chief's Trophy back to Annapolis for the 16th time in school history. Perry capped his career in the Liberty Bowl rushing for 213 yards and 28 carries in Navy's 20-17 win over Kansas State. The win gave Navy a program-tying 11 wins, while Perry became the FBS all-time single-season rushing leader with 2,017 yards. - Navy Football

  Bijan Nichols kicked a 23-yard field goal with two seconds remaining and No. 21 Navy capitalized on a fourth-down gamble in the final minute to beat Kansas State 20-17 in the Liberty Bowl on Tuesday. A Navy team with the nation's top-ranked rushing attack set up the winning score by completing a halfback option pass with less than 30 seconds left. The Midshipmen snapped the ball on fourth-and-3 from the Kansas State 46. Quarterback Malcolm Perry pitched to C.J. Williams, and he threw downfield to a wide-open Chance Warren for a 41-yard gain. Perry, who rushed for 213 yards, spiked the ball with 5 seconds left to set up Nichols' field goal. Nichols had missed a 38-yarder earlier in the fourth quarter.

The victory enabled Navy (11-2) to tie a program record for wins and ensured the Midshipmen will finish a season in the AP Top 25 for just the third time in the last 56 years. Navy finished 18th in 2015 — when it also won 11 games - and was 24th in 2004. Navy went 3-10 last year and matched the second-biggest season-to-season improvement in win-loss record of any team in Football Bowl Subdivision history. Hawaii owns the record by going 9-4 in 1999 after finishing 0-12 in 1998. The Mids made that dramatic turnaround thanks largely to Perry, who capped a brilliant senior season with 28 carries and a touchdown pass. Perry ran for 2,017 yards this season to set a Football Bowl Subdivision record for yards rushing by quarterback. The record had been owned by Jordan Lynch, who ran for 1,920 yards for Northern Illinois in 2013. - AP College Football

  Navy used a trick play to help reverse a rare losing streak against Army and Malcolm Perry ran for a career-high 304 yards and two touchdowns in front of President Donald Trump in the No. 21 Mids' 31-7 victory Saturday at Lincoln Financial Field. Navy (9-2, No. 23, CFP) won the Commander-In-Chief's Trophy for the 16th time and snapped a three-game losing streak to Army in the 120th game between the service academies. Navy leads the series 61-52-7. The Black Knights (5-8) were trying to win four straight games in the Army-Navy series for the first time since 1993 to 1996. Perry, the 5-foot-9, 190-pound senior quarterback, helped the fleet of foot Navy offense run away with the game with another game for the record book.

He ran for a 55-yard TD in the first half, added a 44-yard scamper and set Navy season records in yards rushing and total 100-yard games. But his most GIF-worthy play didn't end up with his name on the scoring sheet. He took the snap at the 1-yard line, ran to his left and handed off the ball to receiver Chance Warren who threw to Jamale Carothers for the score and a 14-7 lead. It was Navy's twist on the Philly Special - the Naval Special? - at the home of the Philadelphia Eagles. It was Navy's only yard passing of the game. Perry was the game's MVP. Perry did not attempt a pass attempt and Army surprise starter Christian Anderson threw just one pass. There was more running at the Linc than at the Penn Relays held down the road each spring. - AP College Football
