UPDATE: Keenan Reynolds also reclaimed the record for most career touchdowns (either rush and receiving) with this 9-yard run late in the fourth quarter.


Chalk up another record for Navy’s supremely talented playmaker Keenan Reynolds. In the Midshipmen’s bowl game against Pittsburgh Monday afternoon, Reynolds passed Michigan’s Denard Robinson for most career rushing yards for a quarterback in FBS history.

Reynolds, a 5’11, 205-pound senior quarterback from Antioch, Tennessee is coming off a fantastic 2015 campaign in which he was in the top-5 in voting for the Heisman Trophy and the Associated Presses’ National College Football Player of the Year. He led Navy in both passing and rushing this past year.

In the regular season, Reynolds completed 52 of 98 passes for just 1,077 yards and seven touchdowns with one interception. However, he was a beast on the ground with 1,229 rushing yards on 248 carries to go with whopping 21 touchdowns.

For his career, Reynolds passed for 3,875 yards and 30 touchdowns with eight interceptions. He also amassed a staggering 4,415 yards on 953 carries on the ground to go with 85 touchdowns in what was truly a sensational career at the Naval Academy.

As for the game, Navy was holding on to a 44-28 lead late in the fourth quarter over Pittsburgh in Monday’s Military Bowl. At last count, Reynolds racked up 132 rushing yards with three touchdowns, while also passing for 126 yards and an additional touchdown through the air
