  • Fox NFL salutes veterans at West Point: Fox NFL Sunday ventured to West Point for Veterans Day salute

     Fox NFL Sunday crew Curt Menefee, Terry Bradshaw, Howie Long, Michael Strahan, Jimmy Johnson and Jay Glazer broadcasted live from The Plain alongside the West Point leadership team, Secretary of the Army Ryan D. McCarthy and musician Jon Bon Jovi in honor of Veterans Day Sunday.

    Fox NFL Sunday looked a little different when viewers tuned in this past weekend to see Terry Bradshaw, Michael Strahan, Howie Long, Curt Menefee and Jay Glazer preview the upcoming NFL action.
    Viewers who tuned in Sunday got an up-close look at the U.S. Military Academy and the old granite halls that have formed generations of leaders for the Army as Fox NFL Sunday continued its annual tradition of hitting the road for Veterans Day by hosting the show from West Point this year.
    “Today, America saw firsthand the leaders of character we have here at West Point,” said Lt. Gen. Darryl A. Williams, superintendent of West Point. “It was an amazing few days with Terry, Michael, Jimmy and the rest of the crew on campus.”
    Whereas the usual Sunday show focuses almost entirely on the games occurring that day, this week’s show spent nearly as much time telling the story of West Point. Read More

    Junior goalkeeper Sydney Cassalia, junior forward Erynn Johns and freshman midfielder Lauren Drysdale were outstanding for the Cadets throughout the week and were voted to the Patriot League All-Tournament Team.

Our goal coming into the season was to make the Patriot League Tournament. We went further than we thought we would. We are not graduating anybody and welcome another 15 to our roster next season so I can’t wait for next season.”

    HOW IT HAPPENED
