Welcome To The West Point Society of Central Florida
The West Point Society of Central Florida exists to serve alumni, ex-cadets and friends of The United States Military Academy living in Central Florida as well as those visiting the area. The purpose of this group is to provide a networking platform for those associated with the Academy, and provide news, information, and events related to the Academy as well as items of local interest to this group's members.
Many of you might remember last year on September 14, 2013 when 5th ranked Stanford visited Michie Stadium and was a 30 point favorite to beat Army. On that day Stanford went into the locker room at the half only leading by 7. "The Black Knights led 6-0 early and kept the game close most of the way before Stanford pulled ahead for a 34-20 victory [ESPN Sports ]" . It was quite a game to watch. This year we had expectations but knew it would be a difficult day. Army defense played well early on but Stanford was too much for us on this day as we were shut out 35-0.

Head Coach Jeff Monken
(ref.: great effort, just the wrong side of the scoreboard)
"I don't know. Effort will be something that we'll have to see when we watch the film. I hope our guys played hard. But bottom line, they were more physical than we were when we were trying to block them. We had a difficult time, and they were blocking us, we weren't doing a great job getting off blocks all the time."
(ref.: they do anything that surprised you that you didn't expect)
"Nope. It's exactly what we expected. It's what we practice for all week, but they were just better."
Another well deserved award for Conrad Taylor. The following comment from Conrad was posted on our Facebook page.
Every time I forget about PATH to FREEDOM: My Story of Perseverance, convinced that there is nothing more worth sharing, a surprise happens! Yesterday, I learned that Readers' Favorite - reviewer of books for the likes of James Patterson, Nicholas Sparks, Random House, Harper Collins, etc. - has awarded its highest 5-Star rating to PATH to FREEDOM.
Their high recommendation helps to signal that your encouragement and support has not been in vain! Appreciate the "assist" very much. Thanks!
