Navy’s Keenan Reynolds Sets Division I Career Rushing TD Record

Daniel Kucin Jr./Icon Sportswire

Heading into the historic Army-Navy Game, star Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds needed two more touchdowns to break the NCAA’s Division I All-Time record in career rushing touchdowns.

In the first half of the game, Reynolds set that mark, and he now has the most rushing touchdowns, 85, in Division I FCS and FBS history.

Here’s video of the record-tying touchdown.

And here’s the record-breaker:

At the time of this writing, Army has made ferocious comeback on Navy and currently leads 17-14 at halftime. Reynolds, predictably, has made his biggest impact on the ground in this game for the Midshipmen, rushing nine times for 114 yards and two touchdowns.

Those are the type of stats a great rushing quarterback would put up by the end of the game, so that should tell you a bit about the type of player that Reynolds is.

Heading into today’s contest, Reynolds had rushed for 1,093 yards and 19 touchdowns on the season. Though his greatest impact doesn’t come through the air, heading into the game vs. Army the Antioch, Tenn. product had thrown for 964 yards and six touchdowns, compared to just one interception.

Of course a lot of Reynold’s rushing success can be attributed to Navy’s option scheme, but there’s no doubting the fact that he’s a special talent. The numbers, and the records, back that up.
