Maj. Kavan O. Lake, USMC was appointed head coach of the Navy sprint football program in the summer of 2012. He is the 29th head coach in the program's history.

During his first year as head coach, the Mids went 6-1, taking second place in the CSFL. Navy led the league in total defense, yielding an average of just 193 yards per game. The Navy offense ranked second in the conference, averaging 316 yards per game.

Lake began his career in the Marine Corps in 1993 and served as an F/A-18 power plant mechanic at Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Beaufort, S.C., and then MCAS Iwakuni, Japan. He was selected for the Marine Corps Enlisted to Officer Program (MECEP) in 1998 and was later commissioned to 2nd LT in December 2001.

After attending flight school in Pensacola, Fla., Lake was winged as a Huey pilot in July 2004 and went on to serve in Iraq on two occasions between 2005-07 with the HMLA-369 "Gunfighters."

Lake brings a strong football background to the Naval Academy as he was a two-year walk-on at Florida State under legendary head coach Bobby Bowden. He was named to the Atlantic Coast Conference Academic Honor Roll on one occasion and went on to graduate from Florida State in 2001.

Lake later earned a Master of Science degree in Manpower Systems Analysis from the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, Calif. Prior to being named Navy sprint football head coach, Lake has served as Marine Corps End Strength Planner since May 2010.
