When your name is Wave Ryder, you're bound to get a little bit of attention.
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.
