The Black Knights lost to UConn 22 - 17. Nevertheless, we all hung together at Gators and had a great time. Arguably, the most festooned alumi at the game this weekend was Charlie Shaw who adorned his cap in a most magnificent way. We hope to see as many of you as we can next week when we take on Wake Forest.
The following account of the game comes from ESPN's website at (http://espn.go.com/college-football/recap?gameId=400760492)
It took UConn two games this season to match its win total from all of last year.
Quarterback Bryant Shirreffs threw for 270 yards and the Huskies got touchdown runs from Arkeel Newsome and Ron Johnson to beat Army 22-17 on Saturday.
The win gives UConn its first 2-0 start since 2008.
"All we want to do is win," said Shirreffs. "It's, I guess, what we expect. But, it's really good to see what you envision become a reality."
The loss drops the Black Knights to 0-2 for the first time since 2012.
Even though it was August, the weather turned out to be very nice with some overcast clouds which gave us some relief from the typical August sun. The rains were kind enough to hold out until the 18th hole. The format was a four man scramble. Doug Sedgwick ('58) also attended the event.
The event was so well attended that they expect to make the event even larger next year. Pictured left is Paul Oettinger ('80) and Jim Young ('78). Paul is a member of Kissimmee Bay Country Club and was part of the committee sponsoring the event. It was a great event. Many thanks to Paul and the many others from Kissimmee Bay CC who took time from their busy schedules to make this event a success. We hope to see many more grads at next years event!
The West Point Association visited the Coalition For the Homeless in Central Florida on July 16th to learn more about the organization, it's mission and also it's support for veteran's. Both Marc Angle '99 (pictured left) gave a short presentation as well as Brent Trotter (pictured right). Brent is the president of the organization and gave a full tour of the center. Brent was extremely forthcoming in answering the many questions he received from our Association members. Through this visit more than $3,000 was committed to the coalition from West Point Association members.
Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida, a private nonprofit organization, is the largest provider of homeless services in Central Florida.
