Navy junior cornerback Jonathan Wev returned to a starting job last month after sitting out a game because of his concussion in the season opener.
Navy safety Kwesi Mitchell knew defensive coordinator Buddy Green was coaching from the press box Saturday. It didn't mean he wasn't a little startled every time he looked to the sideline and didn't see the veteran coach there.
This early August practice session was supposed to be fairly uneventful for David Sumrall. Locked into a competition for Navy's left tackle position, Sumrall was in the middle of what coaches would later say was one of his best practices with the Midshipmen.
Back in high school, Navy's David Sumrall generated quite a bit of attention for an offensive lineman.
