PHILADELPHIA – Time to treat football like hockey for a moment.
That’s right, it’s time for three stars for the first half of Army-Navy.
On offense, it’s slotback Shun White, who has scored both touchdowns for the Midshipmen and is over 100 yards rushing.
On special teams, it’s punter Kyle Delahooke, who uncorked maybe the best 13-yard punt in the game’s history when he chased down a high snap and still got off an attempt in the end zone.
On defense, no one’s been quite as active as nose guard Nate Frazier. The junior has done a little of anything as Navy has extended its streak of not yielding a point to 101:17. The Mids haven’t allowed an opponent to score in the last six quarters.
It doesn’t look like that will change anytime soon. Navy is firmly in control and might just take any drama out of this game if it scores a touchdown on the opening drive of the second half.
