    Failure is not an option, or so they say. The Air Force football team knows better. The Falcons stumbled to two wins and 10 losses last season. They lost by 18 or more points seven times. They ended the season with a 58-13 loss to Colorado State that could have been worse. The Rams...

    He'll always have Reno. Karson Roberts has a tough gig. He's Air Force's No. 3 quarterback, and he will spend the season as a spectator unless calamity strikes Kale Pearson and Nate Romine. Yes, there are dozens of No. 3 quarterbacks in America. But none of those No. 3s gained 161...

    Even when he was sitting around last year, Kale Pearson found a way to improve. The Air Force senior quarterback, who tore his ACL in the 2013 season opener, wasn't able to put weight on his injured leg for months. So he threw from the ground. "I definitely got better throwing from...

    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...
