When your name is Wave Ryder and you play for the Naval Academy, that gets you on "Jeopardy."
During Wednesday's evening's episode of "Jeopardy," Alex Trebek answered:
"Perhaps the most appropriate name ever: Wave Ryder of this service academy."
Navy football officials happened to be watching the broadcast, took a picture of the screen and captured one of the coolest moments of Ryder's young life.
Ryder, a junior safety from Kaneohe, Hawai'i, has 32 tackles this season and is a key contributor for the Midshipmen on special teams.
He's also now a television superstar.
