3. TOP NAVY PLAYERS

Best Navy Offensive Player

QB/RB Malcolm Perry, Sr. 
Well let’s just try this again. The 5-9, 185-pound Perry led the team was a devastating weapon as a sophomore with 1,182 yards and 11 scores – averaging well over eight yards per carry – and was moved to quarterback before last season. He was quickly moved back to running back, and was fine – he led the team with 1,987 yards and seven scores – but the offense wasn’t as effective as it needed to be. Now he’s back at quarterback, but don’t expect Tom Brady – the coaching staff wants its main man to have the ball in his hands running as much as possible.

4. OG Peter Nestrowitz, Jr.
5. RB Tazh Maloy, Sr.

Best Navy Defensive Player

S/LB Jacob Springer, Jr. 
LB Nizaire Cromartie is the teams’ most accomplished returning defender, but watch out for Springer to rise up and rock in the new defensive alignment with all the tweaks. He’s only 6-1 and 198 pounds, but he’s fast, versatile, and will be a key part of the puzzle at the hybrid Striker role. He might not lead the team in tackles – Diego Fagot probably will from his spot in the middle of the linebacking corps – but watch out for him to be the team’s most disruptive defensive force.
