Sophomore linemen Donald Berniard and Westminster grad Jacob Busic emerging as playmakers for Navy defense

But, in fact, the reference is to the two sophomore defensive linemen who are emerging as playmakers for the Navy football team.

Nose guard Donald “Biscuit” Berniard and end Jacob Busic both earned rave reviews from defensive coordinator Brian Newberry for their play against Air Force Sept. 11. Going against a fellow service academy with a strong option rushing attack was a big challenge for the two youngsters and, by all accounts, they responded well.

Berniard was a disruptive force in the middle and finished with seven tackles, one of which was for a loss. The 6-foot, 270-pound nose guard held the point of attack and stuffed the fullback dive.
