\ One of Middies was Jarod Bryant, a junior whose sister works in the White House advance office. \

\ Mr. Bryant, it turns out, is also Navy’s second-string quarterback, who started Navy’s last game against North Illinois on Nov. 17. \


\ I asked Jarod how tall he was, and when he said he likes to say he’s 5‘10”, I told him that’s not very tall for a quarterback.\

\ “Yeah, but we run the option,” he said, smiling.\

\ Indeed. Mr. Bryant ran 27 times against Northern Illinois for 139 yards and a touchdown in Navy’s 35-24 victory. He threw only six times, completing three passes for 60 yards.\

\ Mr. Bryant said he is uncertain whether he’ll start this Saturday’s game against Army, which is Navy’s biggest game of the year every year. The first string quarterback, Kaipo-Noa Kaheaku-Enhada, is reported to be ready to play again.\ \ \ — Jon Ward, White House correspondent, The Washington Times
