Wide Receivers: A

opened summer camp in the coach’s doghouse after he surprisingly failed the Naval Academy’s physical readiness test. Turner did not make the trip to Ireland for the opener. He appeared in the second game before assuming his starting role the rest of the season. Turner led the Mids with 22 receptions for 321 yards (14.6 avg.) and four touchdowns. Turner caught two touchdown passes in the victory over
and was on the receiving end of the 49-yard bomb that set up the game winning touchdown. Brandon will be missed as he was Navy's biggest receiver and a physical blocker.

Lynch started 2011 at free safety but he struggled and was witched back to wide receiver where he played at NAPS and as a plebe. Lynch showed the ability to stretch the field in the opener against
when he had a 41-yard touchdown reception. Four of his receptions, including a 68-yard reception against

Junior Matt Aiken entered summer camp as the starting wide receiver but injured his knee and missed the first four contests. He appeared in the last nine games coming off the bench. Matt made seven receptions for 61 yards and scored two touchdowns. Aiken caught the game winning touchdown against
