Junior defensive back Brendan West, a 2010 graduate of Meridian High, was recently named the Navy sprint football team's MVP.
West produced 27 tackles this season, including 19 solo stops. He also was voted the recipient of the Special Forces Award, which goes to the school's best special teams player.
West led Navy in both kick (404, 31.1 average) and punt (253, 15.8 average) return yards. His season-long kick return of 86 yards went for a touchdown against Princeton.
