ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Navy senior quarterback Keenan Reynolds will attend President Barack Obama’s final State of the Union Address on Tuesday night at 9:00 p.m. as a guest of Tennessee Congressman Jim Cooper.

Reynolds led Navy to a school record 11 wins in 2015 and finished as the NCAA record holder for career touchdowns (88), career rushing touchdowns (88), career rushing yards by a quarterback (4,559) and total points scored (530).  He is the first player in FBS history to have three seasons of scoring 23 or more touchdowns. He is the first player in Navy history and sixth player in FBS history to rush and pass for more than 4,000 yards in a career.

Reynolds finished fifth in the 2015 Heisman Trophy balloting, which is the highest finish by a player from a Service Academy since Roger Staubach won the award in 1963. The Associated Press named him a third team All-American.

Reynolds and the rest of the senior class compiled a 36-16 (.692) record, won three Commander-In-Chief’s Trophies and three bowl games over their four years. The 36 career wins are tied for the most wins in school history with the class of 1909 and this year’s class is the first to win three bowl games.
