    Updated: Sat, Aug 16, 2014

    Nate Romine made his debut as Air Force's starting quarterback against Notre Dame four months after reporting to basic training. But no decision made that day against the Fighting Irish gave him as much stress as one he had to make this summer when the night chill set in and he was...

  • Air Force hoops coaches take Ice Bucket Challenge

    Updated: Fri, Aug 15, 2014

    Air Force basketball coach Dave Pilipovich and his assistants allowed the team's senior players to douse them with freezing water for a good cause. It's worth a look for Pilipovich's reaction if nothing else.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fufuonT_RDQ&feature=youtu.

  • Observations from Air Force's second scrimmage

    Updated: Fri, Aug 15, 2014

    Air Force went “live” for a scrimmage on Friday – I hesitate to fully call it live simply because the quarterbacks, of course, remain off limits, and with a team that uses its quarterback as a running back, that’s not live. Anyway, here were some things that stood out to me:  ...

  • Air Force receiver Garrett Brown ready to make plays

    Published: Fri, Aug 15, 2014

    Garrett Brown is well versed in making defenses pay for not paying enough attention to him. As a high school point guard, opponents viewed at him as a passer first and took away his passing lanes. So he changed his mentality and became a scorer. A school-record 258 3-pointers later,...

  • Air Force defensive line a position of strength in 2014

    Updated: Wed, Aug 13, 2014

    Nick Fitzgerald had to make a choice last year - make a name for himself on the beaches of Destin, Fla., or make a name on the Air Force defensive line. He opted for the Falcons. Fitzgerald gained 20 pounds and will play this year at around 290 pounds. To do this he refrained from...

  • Sophomore OLB Jacob Onyechi moves to Air Force's first-team defense

    Updated: Tue, Aug 12, 2014

    Air Force coaches predicted depth chart movement would result from Saturday's scrimmage, and sure enough there were several tweaks when the team returned to practice Tuesday. Sophomore Jacob Onyechi moved past Dexter Walker at outside linebacker, Weston Steelhammer jumped around...

  • Air Force football notes: Cornerback happy with new scheme

    Updated: Tue, Aug 12, 2014

    Cornerback happy with new scheme It's been a poorly held secret that Air Force would ditch its zone scheme in pass coverage, allowing corners to play closer to the line of scrimmage and engage receivers at the snap. Gavin McHenry, for one, loves the change. "It's refreshing," he...

  • Air Force safety Spears displays a watchful eye in practice

    Updated: Tue, Aug 12, 2014

    Senior Christian Spears has been billed as the Air Force defensive leader since fall camp of last year, maybe even before that. During Tuesday morning’s practice the free safety showed an example of how he has earned that title. During a play against the Air Force backup offense,...

    Updated: Tue, Aug 12, 2014

    I asked offensive coordinator Mike Thiessen what stood out to him from Saturday’s scrimmage after having an opportunity to study the film. Here's what he had to say: I thought our quarterbacks played well. Nate had that situation in the end zone (a fumbled exchange resulting in a...
