St. Pius X Golden Lions
Father Silloway is a native of New Jersey but a true son of the south, having lived in metro Atlanta for over 20 years. Sensing a call to the priesthood in his second year at the University of Georgia, Fr. Silloway became a seminarian for the Archdiocese of Atlanta and was transferred to the Franciscan University of Steubenville in Ohio. He earned there his BA in Theology and was then sent off to the Pontifical North American College in Rome, Italy. He studied at the Pontifical Gregorian University earning an STB degree, and then went on to the John Paul II Institute for Studies in Marriage and the Family at the Pontifical Lateran University, where he earned an STL degree. Fr. Silloway returned to Atlanta in 2011 and served as Parochial Vicar at the Cathedral of Christ the King before becoming Chaplain at St. Pius X.

Mr. Kelly (SPX ‘76) has been in the booth during home football games for 18 years; starting as a scoreboard operator, then assisting two previous announcers as a spotter.

Mr Kelly and his wife, Trisha, have three children: Cason “Casey” (SPX ‘01), Dylan (SPX ‘04) and Emma (SPX ‘08). All three of their kids played multiple sports while attending SPX, and Mr. and Mrs. Kelly never missed a game!
