The triple option has been part of the DNA for Air Force, Navy and Army for decades because it levels the playing field. It's hard to defend and doesn't require big offensive linemen. At its core, the system is centered on a quarterback with plenty of moxie and a fullback with a nose for getting through a tiny crease. (AP Photo/David Zalubowski, File)

Air Force football coach Troy Calhoun will raise funds for Home Front Cares at the 11th annual Colorado Coaches for Charity event May 11 at Denver's Mile High Stadium. Home Front Cares provides support for Colorado service members, veterans and family members who have been impacted by deployment.


The Colorado Coaches for Charity event is hosted by The Fisher DeBerry Foundation, which has raised $1.3 million for charity.
“It’s a night of fun,  but it’s a very meaningful,” DeBerry said. “We send over 100 kids every year in Colorado to summer camps.”
Radio personality Mark Johnson, the voice of the Colorado Buffs, will serve as master of ceremonies, and will conduct a question and answer session with Calhoun, CSU coach Mike Bobo, CU coach Mike MacIntyre, Northern Colorado coach Earnest Collins and CSU-Pueblo coach John Wristen.
“We’ll get to visit with the coaches and get to see them in a different light,” DeBerry said. “We’ll get a look at what’s close to their hearts. It’s not a night of Xs and Os.”
Individual tickets are $200. The event begins at 6 p.m. For more information, www.coloradocoachesforcharity.com
