ANNAPOLIS | Keenan Reynolds will remain Navy’s starting quarterback after helping the Midshipmen collect two straight road victories.
Coach Ken Niumatalolo said the Mids (3-3) will stick with Reynolds even though erstwhile starter Trey Miller is listed as probable this week with a left ankle injury.
Reynolds, who became the first Mid to throw three touchdown passes since 1997 in Friday’s 31-13 victory over Central Michigan, will draw his second start Saturday against Indiana (2-4).
“Every time the guy goes out there, he amazes you,” Niumatalolo said. “What he did at Air Force was amazing, but to come back in that game and I thought he played well. Even some of the little runs, he tucked it up and got some positive yards when he could have had negative yards. I thought he played smart.”
Reynolds, who became the first plebe to start at quarterback for the Mids since 1991, replaced an injured Miller in the middle of the fourth quarter Oct. 6 at Air Force. He led Navy on a game-tying drive, then guided the Mids to a go-ahead score in overtime of the 28-21 victory.
