Delaware vs Navy Preview
FCS powerhouse Delaware will test its mettle against Navy’s option attack while the Midshipmen took to right the ship of a struggling program.
Navy finished below .500 the past two seasons with four or fewer victories each year. Turning things around starts with the Navy ground game, which normally carries the offense. The Midshipmen averaged 282.2 yards and 20.1 points per game last season.
The Blue Hens come in with FCS national championships aspirations, ranked No. 19 in the FCS preseason poll. Blue Hens head coach Ryan Carty makes his debut after serving as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Sam Houston State, which won a national title in the spring 2021 season during COVID.
Navy Key Players
Midshipmen quarterback Tai Lavatai returns after a solid season in 2021 where he threw for 449 yards and five touchdowns plus rushing for 371 yards and seven touchdowns. He also has Mark Walker and-3 to throw to again.
Will Harbour returns from injuries just in time to alleviate the departure of linebacker Diego Fagot, who tallied 94 tackles last season. Safety Rayuan Lane posted 37 tackles and an interception in 2021.
Navy is young at cornerback with sophomores Mbiti Williams and Elias Larry. Both will need to produce to keep the defense afloat against the Blue Hens passing attack.
Defensive linemen Donald Berniard Jr., Jacob Busic, and Clay Cromwell look to impose their will against the Blue Hens offensive line. Berniard tallied 23 tackles in 2021, Busic posted 20 tackles and 5.5 for loss last year, and Cromwell tallied seven tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks last season.
Delaware Key Players
Delaware quarterback Nolan Henderson brings experience to the offense in his sixth year with the program. Henderson returns from injury after playing in only four games with 646 yards passing and four touchdowns versus zero interceptions.
The Blue Hens return leading wide receiver Thyrick Pitts, who had 43 catches for 669 yards and seven touchdowns.
Blue Hens running back Anthony Paoletti will need to step up with the team’s top rusher from last gone. Paoletti, who was second on the team in rushing, had 227 yards and three touchdowns last season.
Delaware returns talent on defense with linebacker Johnny Buchanan, who posted 81 tackles, 5.5 sacks, an interception, and a fumble recovery in 2021. Defensive tackle Kendrick Whitehead also poses a threat, and he tallied 76 tackles last year.
