Captain Blair Turner, Assistant Coach/Faculty Advisor

Captain Blair Turner (US Navy) has been faculty advisor and, more recently, assistant coach with the rugby team since 1998. He did not play rugby as a youth because he is so old that the union rules hadn’t been developed yet. He has been privileged to serve with some outstanding head coaches and has learned the game from them and from Cadets. CAPT Turner is Professor of History and of International Studies and Political Science and has been at VMI since 1982.  Captain Turner is a USA Rugby Level 1 Certified Coach.
