Navy football went 8-4 last season and logged a win in the Armed Forces Bowl.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - A freshman running back on the Navy football team collapsed during spring practice Saturday morning and was airlifted to a hospital.

Will McKamey was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Unit, according to a Navy official. He was receiving medical care Saturday night.

McKamey, a member of the Third Company at the Naval Academy, is a 2013 graduate of Grace Christian Academy in Tennessee.

He was an All-State selection and was named Mr. Football for the state of Tennessee as a senior.

According to statement released by the school, ''The entire Naval Academy family is shaken by this turn of events and we are providing all the support we can to Will and his family.''
