SARASOTA – A Cardinal Mooney graduate was a pallbearer for the late Sen. John McCain.

Cody Tope serves as a ceremonial guard with the US Navy, and he was one of the chosen few to carry Sen. McCain’s casket for his memorial service last Saturday.

Tope played football for the Cougars, and graduated from Cardinal Mooney in 2011 before attending Florida State University. He joined the Navy after college.
