Five Navy Players Named All-East

Keenan Reynolds is tied for the fourth most rushing touchdowns in NCAA history
Dec. 26, 2014

Senior guard Jake Zuzek, senior punter Pablo Beltran, junior quarterback Keenan Reynolds, junior guard E.K. Binns and junior defensive end Will Anthony have been named to the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) FBS Bowl Subdivision All-Star team by representatives from ECAC Division I FBS member institutions.
 
Navy’s five players were tied with Wisconsin and UMass for the most of any school with the following schools being eligible for the All-ECAC Team:  Army, Boston College, Connecticut, Pittsburgh, Maryland, Massachusetts, Navy, Penn State, Rutgers, Syracuse, Temple, Virginia, Wisconsin and West Virginia.
 
Zuzek and Binns helped opened up holes on the offensive line for an offense that averaged 31.8 points and 419.5 yards per game.  The Mids averaged 338.1 yards per game on the ground, which is currently number one in the country (Georgia Tech enters its bowl game averaging 333.6).
 
Beltran averaged 44.2 yards per punt this year on 38 punts.  He had a long of 62 yards and just five of his punts resulted in a touchback.  He had 10 punts fair caught, 17 were killed inside the 20 and he had 10 of 50 yards or more.  His 44.2 yards per punt is the second best average in school history for a single season.
 
Reynolds finished the 2014 campaign with 1,191 yards rushing and 23 touchdowns, while throwing for 843 yards and six touchdowns.  His 23 rushing touchdowns this year were the third most in the country and the most by a quarterback.  It is also the third most in school history and tied for the fourth most in NCAA history by a quarterback.  His 64 career rushing touchdowns are tied for the fourth most in NCAA history by any player and he enters his senior year needing 13 touchdowns to tie and 14 to break the NCAA record for career rushing touchdowns (the record is 77 by RB Montee Ball of Wisconsin).
 
Anthony had a breakout junior campaign on the defensive line for the Mids, recording 67 tackles (fifth most on the team) and a team-high 11 tackles for a loss and 2.5 sacks.  He also came up with a fumble recovery.
 
Navy finished the 2014 season with an 8-5 record and a victory over San Diego State in the Poinsettia Bowl. It marked just the second time in school history that Navy has won a bowl game in back-to-back seasons and it’s the 11th time in the last 12 years that Navy has recorded at least eight wins in a season.
