Ahead of the 2020 homecoming game against Tulane, the Navy Midshipmen have selected 3 members to be inducted to its inaugural Hall of Fame class. These members represent the very best of Navy athletics both on and off the field. These players will be honored at halftime during the homecoming game against Tulane. The three members honored are:

Chris Bell (2018)

Accolades:

-2017 Heisman Finalist

-2017 Independent Offensive Player of the Year

-2017 All-Independent Team

-2017 New Mexico Bowl

-2018 Military Bowl

 

Career Statistics:

-1077 attempts for 5563 yards

-5.17 yards per carry

-70 rushing TDs

-12 receptions for 200 yards

-4 catching TDs

 

Arguably no single player has been as indispensable for their team as Chris Bell has been for Navy. Often running behind lackluster lines, Bell always found a way to put the team on his back and win. In 2017, Bell was responsible for Navy’s first ever winning season, first bowl appearance, and first bowl victory. In 2018, Bell followed that historic season with a performance that helped Navy to its first double-digit win season and second bowl victory. His importance to the team is evident, as a Bell-less Midshipmen team have never had a winning season or bowl victory. Bell was selected in the 2nd round of the 2019 NFLHC draft and currently starts for the Tennessee Titans.

Ahmed Miles (2019)

 

Accolades:

-2018 Military Bowl

-2018 2nd Team All-AAC

 

Navy Career Statistics:

-465/735 (63.27%) for 5753 yards

-41 TDs to 12 INTs

-132 rushing attempts for 665 yards

-7 rushing TDs

-5.03 yards per carry

 

Ahmed Miles arrived at Navy in 2018 via a transfer from Michigan State. Miles’ transfer galvanized the 2018 Midshipmen and allowed them to reach their full potential. Often throwing behind a porous line and to talentless WRs, Miles’ made the most of what he was given. In Miles’ best season, 2018, he threw 21 TDs to just 3 interceptions and for 2850 yards. Miles’ steady hand brought balance to the midshipmen offense and helped clear rushing lanes for Bell. In 2019, Miles lead a Navy team largely devoid of talent on both sides of the Ball to a 6-6 season and their third-straight bowl berth. Miles is by far the best quarterback in Navy’s history, and his career passing numbers should remain untouched for years to come. Miles joins Chris Bell on the Tennessee Titans with a spot on the practice squad.

Vontae Powell (2018)

 

Accolades:

-2017 New Mexico Bowl

-2018 Military Bowl

-2018 1st Team All-AAC

 

Career Statistics:

-172 catches for 2300 yards

-14 TDs

 

Best Season (2018):

-84 catches for 1079 yards

-8 TDs

 

Vontae Powell’s career numbers may not jump off the page, but he put together a stellar career for the Midshipmen considering they ran smash mouth for the majority of his time with the team. With 2,300 career receiving yards, Powell leads the Midshipmen in all-time receiving yards by over 1,400 yards. No wide receiver has meant more for Navy than Vontae Powell. With the addition of Ahmed Miles in 2018, Powell was able to showcase his true receiving abilities. In his last and best season with the midshipmen, Powell recorded 1,079 yards and 8 TDs. Like Bell, Powell is responsible for the only two winning seasons and bowl victories in Midshipmen history. Powell was drafted in the 7th round of the 2019 NFLHC Draft. He currently plays for the Atlanta Falcons.
