Freshman Year (2016)
Nash saw no varsity action his freshman year at Navy.
Sophomore Year (2017)
Playing at defensive back, Nash appeared in the last ten games of the Midshipmen’s season. He recorded 11 tackles during that stretch, adding a fumble recovery against Virginia in the Military Bowl.
Junior Year (2018 – through four games)
Converting to outside linebacker (striker) this year, Nash has started all four of Navy’s games his junior season. As of 9-29-18, Nash’s stats already include nine tackles (2 solo, 7 ast.) and one interception.
The move to the offensive line has certainly agreed with Elan Nash, just as his performance at striker has agreed with Midshipman fans.
