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.
