#1994 Challace McMillin
Position: Coach
Hometown: Gilt Edge, Tn.

In 13 years as JMU's football coach, McMillin built a program and then rebuilt it when the university began awarding scholarships. The program began in 1972 when McMillin recruited players from class registration lines. In 1975, his fourth team had JMU's only unbeaten season (9-0-1), and his 1976 Dukes were tied for the No. 1 spot in the nation in the first Division III poll. He led JMU to a No. 9 national ranking in 1978 and then oversaw the Dukes' move to the scholarship level. His 1982 team was 8-3 and nationally ranked in Division I-AA. McMillin had a 64-52-1 JMU record, and several of his former players have had distinguished professional football careers, including Gary Clark, Charles Haley and Scott Norwood. McMillin is a native of Gilt Edge, Tenn., and he currently is a faculty member in JMU's kinesiology department.
