Brye French never met Brendan Looney, but he heard stories about the former Navy football and lacrosse player. French, himself a two-sport athlete, attended Looney's funeral along with the rest of his lacrosse teammates.
Trey Miller returned to the Navy sideline after Saturday's first possession as he had so often in September.
The aftermath of Navy's latest loss included three injured starters, two more turnovers and one murky quarterback situation.

Navy quarterback Kriss Proctor rushed for 107 yards and John Howell scored the go-ahead touchdown as the Midshipmen — who didn't complete a pass all game — stayed in bowl contention by beating SMU 24-17 on Saturday.

Howell said there is no swelling or pain in his knee and that his recovery two months removed from surgery is going as well as he could hope.
