Navy honored the players from the 2003 Houston Bowl team at halftime. They were on the sidelines to see a Navy touchdown (rush by Keenan Reynolds, as shown previously) "up close and personal" again. Congratulations and thanks to all... the players who were available to make the trip, and those who are deployed/on active duty. You helped change the course of Navy Football.
