Ah, life in the Navy. Spend your summers on ships or in helicopters. Kick a football and spend Christmas in Hawaii. Life is good. It's especially so for former Western High standout Jason Covarrubias, now a midshipmen second class, who will handle the punting chores for the Navy (8-3), which meets California (6-5) in today's Aloha Bowl. No matter what job Covarrubias winds up getting after he earns his commission, he couldn't ask for a better assignment than his present one.
