Forged by the sea: Ryan Craft appointed to U.S. Naval Academy
Each year, approximately 16,000 students apply to the United States Naval Academy and, each year, only about eight percent are admitted to Annapolis and only after an extremely rigorous and thorough application process.
Later this summer, Ryan Craft will be among that eight percent.
The Heritage multi-sport senior athlete celebrated his appointment with family and friends at the school this past Tuesday. Several dignitaries including local and state government representatives, Catoosa County Superintendent Denia Reese and personnel from the U.S. Navy were also on hand for the ceremony, including CAPT Douglas Fuge, himself a graduate of Annapolis.
