  • 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

  • To turn fortunes, Air Force knows it must force turnovers

    Published: Sun, Aug 10, 2014

    Defensive coordinator Steve Russ left Falcon Stadium on Saturday morning bummed. The performance from his unit was far from disastrous, but the emphasis for Air Force defense is about turnovers. And in the season's first scrimmage, the Falcons didn't force any. "We've got to get the...
