    Navy plebe Malcolm Perry began his school's game against Fordham in a crisp white uniform, hanging out with other midshipmen in the stands.

    By the fourth quarter, Perry was wearing a blue jersey, gold pants and pads, taking snaps and hanging out with burly offensive linemen.
    Navy needed an emergency backup quarterback Saturday afternoon, and Perry was called from the stands and eventually got in the game. The fourth-string quarterback had played in a junior varsity game Friday.
    Starting QB Tago Smith was injured just two plays into the second quarter and Will Worth took his place. But what to do if something happened to Worth? Third-string quarterback Zach Abey wasn't available.
    Perry was, and he was right there in the bleachers, so the coaching staff sent a manager to get him, and members of the equipment staff to find his game uniform.

    2016 Army - Navy game:

    I root for Navy because I grew up in a Marine Corps family and the USMC is a department of the Navy, and there's always Marines on the Navy team. But I'm glad that Army won (21-17) this time because they lost 14 in a row...and that just didn't seem right. :eek:

    *Note: Air Force, Army and Navy are all going to bowl games this year!
