This spring’s history-making football season at VMI could help the Keydets compete on a closer-to-level recruiting field with other FCS schools around the state.

The journey for VMI has been long, remarkable, arduous.
The Keydets won the SoCon title for the first time since 1977.
Deciding to exit the transfer portal and return to VMI has paid off for both Herres and the Keydets.
The team is more committed than it was in 2017, said coach Scott Wachenheim.
The 3-0 Keydets are No. 19 in the FCS poll.
VMI signed nine recruits Wednesday.
Nicholas Conte, former punter for UVa and Roanoke's Patrick Henry High School, is coaching at VMI but hasn't given up on his dreams to punt in the NFL.
"I had talked to other schools, but other schools were not comfortable with me playing in the spring at VMI," he said.
The QB "is committed to play for VMI football this spring," said Scott Wachenheim.
