New England Patriots practice squad running back Eric Kettani’s dream of playing in the NFL has been derailed by the US Navy – as he has been summoned back to active duty.
Kettani will return to the USS Klakring frigate in Jacksonville, Florida.
“I love my country, and I’m happy to serve it,” Kettani said.
Kettani, who has already served two years of active duty, was given select reserve status in time to report for training camp in July, under the condition that he helped to promote the navy.
Despite his willingness to serve, he has launched an appeal to stay with the team.
“I look forward to continuing my dream of playing for the New England Patriots,” Kettani said.
