Navy Faces Air Force without McGown


Byline: Corey Masisak, THE WASHINGTON TIMES

Not only is a struggling Navy defense facing a potent Air Force offense today, it will do so without one of its most valuable members.

Junior defensive back Jeremy McGown will not play against the Falcons (2-3) at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium because of a broken arm he suffered during last week's game against Duke.

McGown did not practice this week and was given leave from the academy to have surgery on his left forearm Tuesday. His mother, Sue, said the surgery was successful and Navy coach Paul Johnson expects McGown to be out at least three to four weeks.

The injury happened early in the game against the Blue Devils, but McGown stayed in the game and finished with six tackles and a pass breakup.

"It was one of the most courageous things I've ever seen," Navy defensive coordinator Buddy Green said. "He made some very aggressive tackles and still ran around at 100 miles per hour."

McGown came to Annapolis from Langham Creek High School in Houston as a quarterback before moving to wide receiver and eventually to the defensive backfield. Last season he started at safety before moving to cornerback this fall.

"He does so many things for this team," Green said. "He makes big plays. He brings great leadership. He sets an example for the younger guys. When I talk about hustle, I point to Jeremy on film."

In McGown's place will be freshman Rashawn King from Raleigh, N.C. King went to the same high school as sophomore linebacker Matt Wimsatt, where he won two state titles in track and field as a hurdler.

King was not listed in the three-deep preseason depth chart, but rose to No. 2 behind McGown during fall camp. He has seen action in one game this season - Sept. 10 against Stanford. He will see significantly more playing time today.

"It's not set in stone, nothing is set in stone," King said.
