From Army to infield

One of the more interesting players in the Padres' Minor League camp this spring arrived in Peoria, Ariz., with a pretty unique title: Meet Clint Moore, infielder and First Lieutenant in the Army. Moore was selected in the 31st round of the 2011 First-Year Player Draft after graduating from the United States Military Academy. It was during his 60 days of leave after graduation that Moore appeared in 21 games at short-season Class A Eugene, hitting .222, before resuming his military obligation.

Former Marist coach has WP women dancing

The cell phone reception wasn’t great, but you weren’t going to hear Dave Magarity complain about that. The bus was at a rest stop just last the Maryland border, his players were off stretching their legs and buying bottles of water, and it all felt like the best shade of Nirvana for Magarity. “We’re on our way to the NCAA Tournament,” the West Point women’s basketball coach said. “What can be better than that?” Through the years Marist would come close periodically, but never got back. Magarity ultimately lost his job to the quest, briefly became an administrator in the Mid-American Conference, then, in 2005, found his way back in the game, assisting a bright young coach named Maggie Dixon at Army. Magarity’s passion for the game was rekindled, and the Black Knights made their first-ever NCAA that year. And then, not long after, Dixon died suddenly, victim of an enlarged heart. It is a loss that still profoundly affects the Academy, one that still touches Magarity every day.

Knox moves to the courtroom

John F. Knox III has taken a unique path to his new law career. In fact, before being hired as an associate in October at Hicks Law Firm, PLLC in Hattiesburg, Knox spent 10 years traveling the globe during a distinguished military career with the U.S. Army. A native of Haughton, La., Knox began his military stint at the United States Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., where in May 2004 he earned a Bachelor of Science degree. Following that, Knox served with the 10th Mountain Division in Fort Drum, N.Y., and the 84th Explosive Ordnance Battalion at Fort Riley, Kan. The military also took Knox overseas, where he served in both Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan and Operation Iraqi Freedom in Iraq. It was sometime while traveling between those two countries that Knox realized he had a decision to make. “I knew I had to figure out if I wanted to stay in the military or to pursue another career,” he said. “I’d always wanted to go to law school, and figured that if I was going to do that, then this was the time for it.”

Army's Minato always a prime target

Kelsey Minato's importance to the Army women's basketball team is immeasurable and that makes her the prime target for opposing defenses every time out. There's no sneaking up on anyone, not with statistics as flattering as Minato's, not with two Patriot League player of the year awards and not when pro player and ESPN analyst Kara Lawson stated on national television that Minato is one of the best players in the country that few have heard about. "That was really cool,'' Minato said with a laugh following the NCAA Selection Show. "I wasn't expecting that, so that was really nice of her to say "» especially for her being a great player, that was really special for me.''

History Comes Alive - The Civil War Remembered

It's a class reunion at West Point and there's an excitement in the air. It's been 40 years since the class of 1843 graduated and former West Point grad and President Ulysses S. Grant is getting ready to speak. Patriotic music plays. He walks in confidently, but with no airs and welcomes those he sees along the way. What we're about to witness is not a schmaltzy eye roll-inducing motivational speech, but a great man reflecting on where he's been in life and what an honor it has been to serve his country. In the stories alone - from growing up with a father insisting he go to West Point, struggling to provide for his family, and fighting in the Civil War, to going head to head with some of the most powerful men in the country at the time (the formidable General Robert E. Lee among them) - there are lessons to be found if you just listen for them.

Army wants outspoken West Point cadet to pay up

An Army cadet who left West Point Academy just months shy of his graduation to make a high-profile protest of religious proselytizing at the school now faces Pentagon demands that he repay the cost of his education — either through active-duty service or by paying as much as $250,000. The notification this week that he would be hit up for the fees blindsided Blake Page, 24, who says that top leadership at West Point assured him that "recoupment" of costs for his taxpayer-funded education would be waived when he left the school in December.
