Navy's Josiah Powell honors captain, scores TD

Changing your number to honor a captain who was lost for the season with a broken foot is a nice gesture.

But on Saturday, Navy linebacker Josiah Powell took his tribute to the injured Daniel Gonzales a full step further.

After making the switch from No. 40 to No. 58, Powell recorded his first two career interceptions, the second of which went for a touchdown to open up a 14-point lead in the second half against No. 6 Houston.

Gonzales' 23 tackles were tied for second on the team through four games, and his contributions will certainly be missed for the Midshipmen. But hey, maybe it's all in the two digits on the back of the jersey.
