    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...

    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...

    Published: Sat, Aug 9, 2014

    Offense improves vs. defense The scoreboard wasn't keeping tabs during Air Force's scrimmage, and with an emphasis on situations, no punting and no tackling of the quarterback, it wasn't a true-to-life representation. Still, the offense took advantage of the opportunity to show it...

    The full impact of his situation didn't hit Jacobi Owens until Thursday when running backs coach Ben Miller stated the obvious. "He said if we played a game tomorrow, you could be the starting running back," Owens said. "That just opened my eyes, and I was just like, "Wow, I've got...

    Updated: Thu, Aug 7, 2014

    There's no denying that Spencer Proctor is moving to a more glamorous position for Air Force. "You get more sacks," said the senior, who moves from inside to outside linebacker. "The crowd loves sacks. But it's not really about that, it's just about helping the team." More sacks...
