Christian Sloan to the United States Military Academy at West Point

The coaching staff of the football program along with the entire Pope John Family are very proud of Christian Sloan.
He has received an appointment to the United States Military Academy at West Point. Below is a note from his father expressing his excitement and gratitude to the entire Pope John Community.

" Anyone who has had Christian over the past four years knows that this is something that Christian has dreamed about, and worked very hard for.  It is a wonderful thing when dedication and hard work pays off this way.  This year it is harder than ever to receive appointments to the military academies because the sequestration cuts in the military budgets have reduced the size of the entering classes at the academies.

Thank you to all of you who have taught, coached, and supported Christian over the years, and thank you to everyone who has made Pope John the kind of school which supports students with dreams such as his.

Christian will join Joshua Thomlinson Aaron, '2012, who reapplied to West Point this year and also has received an appointment.  Brandon Schultz earlier this year received an appointment to the United States Naval Academy
and will be attending in the fall."
