The more you get to know about a guy like John Zenyuh, the more impressive he becomes. You know, one of those guys who wears well…who just keeps piling one quiet accomplishment on top of the other. And that goes for his career off the field as well as on the field.
You also notice that he has played on an awful lot of “winning” teams. As a defensive halfback at Mt. Carmel High he was in the 1954 Championship Team. As a starter of the Naval Academy he was on teams that beat Army three consecutive years. In 1960, his final year with the Middies, his team, played in the Orange Bowl.
John also starred in track while at Mt. Carmel. He was a Gold Medal Winner in the hurdles at Conference and Districts and got all the way to the State Final his junior and senior years. He also competed as a member of the Mile Relay Team at the Penn Relays.
He is presently Principal of the West Point Middle School in West Point, New York. In between he has taught and coached in Germany and Ethiopia. He has gotten a Masters Degree from Bucknell and his Doctorate from Southern Cal. He married his high school sweetheart, Loretta, and has two boys – John, Jr., and Christopher.
