Congrats to Navy Defensive Graduates

From all of us here at Behind The Lines TV, it's a Naval Academy graduation shout out! Congratulations to all the football players in the 2021 graduating class.

You leave the playing field for another field, one with more important consequences.

24 of you graduate today, 10 from the defense, including your Class President and 2020 team Tri-Captain Cam Kinley, who signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. And congrats to the rest of the secondary, Marcus Wiggins, Evan Fotchman and Michael Cabrerra

In this Season of COVID, the defensive line worked to keep opponents socially distant from the Mids' side of the field, thanks to seniors Jackson Perkins, Tobe Okafore, Michale Flowers and Chris Person.

Congrats to the seniors who chased down opposing quarterbacks, Austin Talbert-Loving, Ian Blake and Jacob Gregory. And finally, congrats to the lone special teams senior graduating, long-snapper Kyle Gibbs.

Once again, CONGRATULATIONS form all of us at Behind The Lines . . . and best of luck, graduates, as your country calls.
