Brandon Turner hadn't witnessed a Navy football season end quite like last year's did.
Navy couldn't have expected much more from Keenan Reynolds' freshman season.
Navy wide receiver Brandon Turner pleaded in the second half to somehow get him the ball.
Always kidding, always joking, Navy wide receiver Brandon Turner put on his most serious face recently as he approached Danny O'Rourke, his old position coach.
Navy wide receiver Brandon Turner was worried.
Keenan Reynolds ran for 159 yards and a touchdown and threw two scoring passes to Brandon Turner, helping Navy beat Florida Atlantic 24-17 on Saturday for its fifth straight victory.

Brandon Turner's freshman season at Navy was five minutes from concluding. The Midshipmen were demolishing Missouri in the Texas Bowl, and Turner's day (as well as teammate Bo Snelson's) effectively would end with kickoff coverage after Navy's last touchdown.

"It's like any problem," Turner said. "The first initial phase, you're hurt. The second phase, you're mad. The third phase, you're [expletive]. Fourth phase, you kind of get your head on straight and understand it's your fault and no one else's and you just have to deal with it. It's another roadblock. You just have to get over it."
"It was tough," Turner said. "I definitely didn't think I'd get punished this severe, but it's in the past. It happened. I dealt with it. I worked out every day and I came prepared and I passed all my physical tests."
