2021 marks PressBox’s fifth annual Best Of edition celebrating the top people, performances and moments of the year.
Best Final Act
Diego Fagot’s final moments in a Navy football uniform were nothing short of spectacular.
Early in the fourth quarter of December’s Army-Navy Game, a miscommunication led to a would-be punt snap going directly to the senior linebacker, who was the upback. Fagot did well enough just to snag the unexpected snap but then managed to fight through a would-be tackle in the backfield and pick up a first down. The Midshipmen would end up taking nine minutes off the clock on the drive before adding a field goal.
Fagot also was in on the tackle on Army’s final offensive play, as the Mids stopped Christian Anderson short on fourth-and-3 to seal the 17-13 victory.
