Navy is expected to start Kaipo-Noa Kaheaku-Enhada at quarterback today and that is somewhat a roll of the dice since the senior has not played in more than a month. Kaheaku-Enhada has been sidelined with a nagging hamstring injury since leaving the Temple game during the third quarter on Nov. 1. Navy needs Kaheaku-Enhada to be sharp and at full speed in order to win. At his best, the native Hawaiian is a master at directing the triple-option offense. However, Kaheaku-Enhada was clearly tentative, a step slow and had no burst versus Temple. Head coach Ken Niumatalolo must gauge quickly if Kaheaku-Enhada is close to 100 percent and be prepared to insert sophomore Ricky Dobbs if he is not.
