Ed Hendren

Scholar-Gymnast

The gymnastics media guide identifies our letter winners: Phil Costain (2 letters), Warren (Steve?) Foote (1 letter in 1962 but he did not graduate with us; does anyone know why?), Ed Hendren (2), Larry Mooring (1), Ken Wallace (2), Merle Williams (2), and Will Worthington (1). Of those I knew, I always considered them the fittest looking of the fittest.

Ed ranked number 10 in his class at graduation.

Phil Costain

Champion

We were Eastern League gymnastics champions in 1960 and in 1962. The latter team, the last under Coach Maloney, was the last Eastern League championship for Army (although Maloney resigned after the first meet!). Phil Costain, team captain, was Eastern League champion in the horizontal bar in 1962. Howitzer states that Phil was named national champion in that event in 1962 but there is no mention of this accomplishment in the media guide. Furthermore, one would think that the national champion would also be named All-American, but,
according to the guide, no Army gymnast made All-American between 1958 and 1994. Is this an oversight?
