It is a fascinating juncture in the program’s history.
The Mids are scheduled to enter a watered-down Big East in 2015, and they are in the process of building the program up to play in a conference for the first time after more than a century of independence.
Reynolds will be a senior in 2015, and plenty can unfold in the interim. So much of Navy’s success in the immediate future could rest on him.
“His legacy will be, ‘Will he stay hungry and stay humble?’” Niumatalolo said. “If he does those two things, that kid has a chance to go down as one of the best quarterbacks we’ve ever had here.”
In time, it could happen. For now, Reynolds is an exceptionally accomplished plebe, one who will be hard-pressed to top the accomplishments of his debut season.
After all, it’s not every day Navy surges past Army in the final minutes to extend a decade of dominance for another year.
“It’s the greatest game I’ve ever been a part of,” Reynolds said. “I’m excited for the future and what the Army-Navy games hold for me and my teammates, but we’re going to enjoy this win.”
