Video: Keenan Reynolds gives touching Memorial Day tribute

Memorial Day is a special day where we are to honor the heroes that have fallen in battle to protect our country. Former Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds knows exactly what that means and he narrated an amazing tribute, which ESPN aired on Monday.

Reynolds is required to serve in the military after graduating from the Naval Academy, but he has been given permission to serve once his NFL career is over. No matter the case, he is showing his appreciation for all of those that have lost their lives protecting the nation and allowing him to play the sport he loves without fear.

Keenan Reynolds is arguably the greatest player in Navy Midshipmen history and he just finished his time with the Academy last week. He will be able to play in the NFL after being drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft.
