* 22 Adam Ballard (6-1, 236, Sr.)- Ballard started every regular season game during the 2006 season. After being injured against Army he missed the Meineke Car Care Bowl game against Boston College. Ballard led all Navy rushers in 2006, picking up 792 yards in a team leading 154 carries. A reliable runner, he lost only four total yards on the season. Navy opponents can expect to see a lot of Ballard in 2007.

36 Eric Kettani (6-1, 233, Jr.)- Saw action in all 13 games for Navy in 2006. Picked up 229 yards in 53 carries. Kettani will provide solid depth for Navy at fullback in 2007.

45 Kevin Campbell (5-11, 193 So.)- Did not see action in 2006 but worked hard during the spring and moved into the 3-deep roster for Navy.
