When Keenan Reynolds played college football for the Navy Midshipmen from 2012 to 2015 he racked up several records for his rushing and scoring as a quarterback. Following college, he was selected No. 182 overall by the Baltimore Ravens in 2016 NFL Draft in the sixth round.

NCAA Records Held by Reynolds

Reynolds finished his college football career with an NCAA Division I record 88 career touchdowns and an NCAA Football Subdivision record with 4,559 rushing yards by a quarterback.

During his college career he held the record for the most rushing touchdowns by a quarterback in a season with 31 in 2013; and the most rushing touchdowns in a game, 7, versus San Jose State in 2013. He also holds the record for the most points scored by a non-kicker with 530 points.

Before Reynolds, the rushing yards record holder by a quarterback had been Pat White who played for West Virginia with 4,480 yards.

Earlier Years

Reynolds hails from Antioch, Tennessee. He graduated high school from Goodpasture Christian School, where he led the school to football fame with consecutive district championships. He ran track and was a member of the National Honor Society. After graduation, he accepted an offer from Navy and turned down offers from Air Force and Wofford.

In addition to his NCAA records, he is also the only Navy quarterback to go 4-0 against arch-rival Army. Reynolds finished fifth in the running for the Heisman Trophy, the highest by a service academy player since Navy quarterback Roger Staubach's win in 1963.

In 2016, the Naval Academy retired Reynolds' No. 19. Only three other players have had their numbers retired by the school: Roger Staubach (No.12), Joe Bellino (No. 27) and Napolean McCallum (No. 30).
