Every year it seems that VMI is having to replace a key contributor, but none of those previous contributors can compare with Player of the Year Okoye. Replacing him will be no easy task, but head coach Duggar Baucom has a few key pieces returning. With Glasgow & Covington leading the way, the Keydets should still be a factor in the North Division title race.
