Rembert not distracted

Cornerback Reggie Rembert currently is serving a suspension for an unspecified violation of academy standards.

And while Air Force coach Troy Calhoun has said Rembert will play “a lot” in 2009,  the junior’s suspension is “indefinite,” which means he could miss some games early in the season.

While Rembert is not permitted to represent the academy during the suspension (meaning he can’t play in games or talk to the media) he is allowed to practice. And his suspension has had no effect on his performance in the preseason, according to secondary coach Charlton Warren.

“Great attitude, no drop-off in productivity, no drop-off in effort,” Warren said. “He’s the same guy he was, but he’s maturing. … I think he’s handled everything great, and you wouldn’t know there’s a situation the way he’s practicing and playing.”

Warren said Rembert also is helping younger cornerbacks — “showing them how to work, how to practice,” Warren said.

Etc.

Another freshman who could push for playing time is kicker Daniel Compton, who has been getting some chances to kick field goals in practice along with sophomores Garrett Jack and Erik Soderberg. … Sophomore Z receiver Jonathan Warzeka (bruised arm) was being re-evaluated on Wednesday and did not practice.
