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 the society is to provide a networking platform for those associated with the Academy, provide news, information, and to further the ideals and promote the welfare of the USMA.
The following is a summary of the Army/Tulane game from NCAA.com. We had a good little crowd on Saturday and some pictures were taken. Click on the Picture below for more pictures.
The Tulane Green Wave (2-2) got back to .500 by grinding out a dramatic win at home against Army (2-2). Dontrell Hilliard scored a 75-yard touchdown on the game’s first play to give Tulane a quick lead. Army took a late 17-14 lead, but a 3-yard score by quarterback Jonathan Banks with 23 seconds remaining propelled Tulane to victory.

Freshman Harrison Greenhill was congratulated by Army coach Jeff Monken after Army defeated Fordham in a 64-6 victory. Harrison Greenhill graduated from Lake Highland last year and was named "Outstanding Defensive Finisher" in Coach Monken's tweet.
A number of us were there at Gator's for the season opener against Fordham to cheer the team on. Marc Angle was kind enough to tip us off on this tweet.

Lots of people want to become bestselling authors, but I learned recently about an entrepreneur who turned a prank into a bestselling book in a single day. His secrets? An ambitious joke, a well-timed Facebook post--and an enthusiastic audience of thousands.
Joe O'Connell is our current Vice President of the West Point Society. Not many people know how busy Joe is with his job and other activities. He has been an very active member of the AUSA Sunshine Chapter and is currently on their board. Joe recently received an award from the AUSA Sunshine Chapter. Word leaked out to me and I was able to get a picture and some information about the award. The picture shown here is of Mike Genetti ('75) and Earle Denton's wife presenting the AUSA Sunshine Chapter Earle L. Denton Award. Let's all congratulate Joe on this achievement and also Mike Genetti, who was the 2014 award winner, for all the work they have done with the AUSA Sunshine Chapter over the years.

Joe O'Connell, COL, USAR (Ret), USMA Class of '83, was awarded the AUSA Sunshine Chapter Earle L Denton Award for Outstanding Support to the Central Florida Army Family. The award was established in 2009 and the title of this award recognizes Lieutenant Colonel Earle L. Denton, United States Army (Retired), who has been an energetic and committed leader for more than thirty years, successfully advocating many issues and causes benefiting both the Army Family in Central Florida, and the larger population of veterans from all of America’s armed forces. Earle was a Friend of West Point and often attended the Founders Day events with our Society.
