Navy pulls new QB from crowd in dress whites


Well, this isn’t something you see every day. During Saturday’s season opener between the Navy Midshipmen and Fordham Rams, a military member was summoned from the brigade to suit up as quarterback for the second half.

After an injury to first-year starter Tago Smith, who was given the tough task of following Keenan Reynold’s tenure as the starting quarterback, the Midshipmen pulled freshman Malcolm Perry out of the stands.

Perry was attending the game as a fan and was sitting with the brigade in his dress whites.

It was a completely different look for the second half when Perry came rolling out in his full uniform as the team’s new backup signal-caller. Senior backup Will Worth took over for Smith under center.

Navy currently leads, 35-13, so perhaps we could see Perry end up seeing some action before it’s all said and done.
