    September 29, 2014Best Regrets: VMI's John McKenna and the Lost Age of College Football is a captivating book that tells the story of VMI football coach John McKenna, as told by sports author Roland Lazenby, VMI Class of 1974, along with veteran sportswriter Mike Ashley. McKenna was head coach at VMI for 13 seasons during an era in which the NCAA mandated one platoon football.

I’m not proud of it, but the fact is, I was initially turned down for admissions in the winter of 1966, but strong encouragement from a few VMI alumni at that time got me an opportunity for which I will forever be grateful. I wasn’t a good student nor was I an outstanding cadet, but VMI certainly impacted me and my life, and I believe VMI still impacts the lives of so many young people today” said Costen.Read More →
