Keenan Reynolds, Breanna Stewart take Sullivan Award

NEW YORK -- Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds and UConn forward Breanna Stewart won the AAU James E. Sullivan Award on Sunday as the most outstanding U.S. amateur athletes who also demonstrate premier leadership, character and sportsmanship.

Reynolds led Navy to a school-record 11 wins against two losses and the academy's best end-of-season ranking in more than 50 years at No. 18. He finished his career as the FBS leader in touchdowns (88) and rushing yards by a quarterback (4,559).

"I'm extremely blessed and honored to have won this award," Reynolds said in a statement. "I would like to thank my family, the coaching staff, my teammates, the Naval Academy Athletic Association, the Naval Academy administration, the Brigade of Midshipmen and the entire Naval Academy family for all the support they have provided me over the last four years. Winning this award is the cherry on top of a great four years."

Stewart led UConn to four straight national titles. She is the first women's basketball player to be honored since Coco and Kelly Miller in 1999.

She did not attend the ceremony because she was taking part in the Huskies' title parade in Hartford, Connecticut.

It was only the second time that multiple athletes won the award.
