QB: Shaun Carney
was a tough call for the panel as Carney was pushed by Navy’s Kaheaku-Enhada,
but at this point in their careers, Carney still has the better arm and he will
finally have a chance to display it.
RB: Reggie Campbell
Campbell was the only
unanimous pick at running back and for good reason. Navy’s offensive captain is the most
exciting player in service academy football right now.
RB: Adam Ballard
panelist thought that Ballard may not be the best fullback at Navy, but there is
no denying that linebackers aren’t looking forward to seeing him during the
RB: Mike Viti
Comments: You really can’t put this team together
and leave Viti off it. He is the
heart and soul of the Army team.
Although he won’t gain Ballard-like yardage this year, look for Army to
get him the ball more.
WR: Jeremy Trimble
far the best wide receiver at any service academy. His speed and agility will be major
assets for whomever Army chooses to put behind center.
WR: Chad Hall
Chances are with Calhoun’s new offensive scheme and Carney’s arm, Hall could

Guenther, Air Force’s best lineman back at his natural position.
OG: Ben Gabbard
6’4”, 300 pounds, Ben has nice size for a service academy team and his
experience should help maintain Navy as one of the top three rushing teams in
C: Trey Miranne
needs Miranne to hold together a line that will be replacing three
starters. Although ranked behind
Harper and Guenther, his placement on the first team should not be a surprise.
OG: Antron Harper
Everyone had Harper on their first team and can you blame them? Ask Coach Johnson who his best lineman
is and he’ll say Harper without hesitation. He may be the best player on the entire
OT: Josh Meek
Comments: Meek got the very slight edge here over
Army’s Ray Zelenak based on his size and the overall success of Navy’s rushing
attack. Meek will be pushed by
teammate Paul Bridgers who had a solid spring.
QB: Kaipo-Noa Kaheaku-Enhada
RB: Shun White
