One of the best plays of the 2006 season came as Navy was struggling against I-AA UMass in week two. After failing to do much of anything on offense early in the game, the Midshipmen got a huge contribution by way of senior fullback Matt Hall, who had been relegated to a backup role after the emergence of Adam Ballard the previous season. Hall however took advantage of his opportunity in the second quarter, and sparked the Midshipmen with a 53-yard touchdown run in which he broke numerous tackles to tie the game at 14 and put Navy back into the game.
So why the trip down memory lane? Well, because I've recently learned Matt has produced a highlight video of his career, with the touchdown run against UMass taking center stage. While I may not be the biggest fan of the highlight film's choice of music, it's really an excellent production that showcases one of Navy's biggest playmakers over the past two seasons. Thanks for the memories Matt!
On a related note, former Navy linebacker and all around backfield havoc-maker David Mahoney has let me know that he too is working on a highlight video, and will have it up shortly on You Tube. I'll be sure to post it when it becomes available online, but needless to say I can't wait to see it!
