When President Barack Obama makes his final State of the Union Address tomorrow night in Washington D.C., Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds will be there to witness it. Reynolds will be a guest of Tennessee Congressman Jim Cooper, according to Navy football’s memo. Reynolds is a Tennessee native.
If any college football player is worthy of receiving such an invite, it has to be Reynolds. The Navy quarterback closed out a storied career with the Midshipmen on the football field this past season by setting multiple records along the way to leading Navy to its first 11-win season. Reynolds also finished fifth in the Heisman Trophy voting and became a bit of a fan favorite for the award as the final weeks flew by. He also received All-American honors from the Associated Press after helping Navy clinch the Commander-In-Chief’s Trophy by becoming the first Navy quarterback to go 4-0 against Army in the annual Army-Navy Game.
So if you are tuning in for the State of the Union on Tuesday night, keep an eye out for one of college football’s finest in the crowd.
