Big Bear High School’s own 2008 graduate and league MVP quarterback Kriss Proctor made his first appearance on the field for the Navy’s Midshipmen, running in an impressive three touchdowns in the second half to beat Rice University in Houston in a score of 63-14 this weekend—and earning him Navy’s Offensive Player of the Week. Proctor, now a 19-year-old sophomore at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, had been sidelined due to a knee injury, so this was only two games into the season for him and yet he rushed 14 times for 85 yards, prompting Navy Coach Ken Niumatalolo to tell the press following Monday’s football practice, “He played very well. I am very excited about him. The things he did in the game are the same things he showed us in camp and spring ball. That doesn’t always happen. Sometimes guys will look good in practice, but when they get in the game it doesn’t transfer, but I was very encouraged with what I saw from Kriss.” Proctor’s coach wasn’t the only one to get excited about his game, as parents Kenny and Sandie, grandmother Jean Sanchez (wife of BVUSD’s first school principal Tom), Tony and Dottie Kerst and Phil and Sue Hamilton were also in Texas for Navy’s blowout over Rice. As mom Sandie Proctor tells KBHR, “This was his debut, and it was fun. We beat ‘em by a lot. We’ve been going to the games, and it is so much fun. We just love seeing Kriss and everybody on the team, and their parents—they’re just so much fun. The games are an all-weekend thing and really intense. Go, Navy!”
p.s. In a follow-up message from Kriss, he says, “Tell everyone thank you so much for all of the love and support!”

Proctor rushed 85 yards once on the field in the second half, following junior QB Ricky Dobbs. Navy Coach Ken Niumatalolo said yesterday, "They are very different quarterbacks. Kriss is probably faster than Ricky and has a little more jitterbug to him." (Photos courtesy of Tony Kerst)
