The Naval Academy sits 45 miles away from Accokeek, Md. -- the hometown of Rutgers senior safety and captain Lorenzo Waters. Saturday marks the first time Waters plays a game in his home state since his time with Hyattsville (Md.) DeMatha Catholic and one of two games at home as a Rutgers senior.
But Waters does not have the time to handle ticket requests because his role against Navy is critical to coming back to New Jersey with a victory. Waters is one of the primary weapons against the run in the Navy scheme.
It was in 2011 when Waters had his true Rutgers debut against Navy with mixed results. He improved against Army the following year and faces the triple option Saturday for the final time.
