  • Blog: Offseason AFA, CC hockey update

    Incoming Air Force senior forward Cole Gunner participated in the Chicago Blackhawks development camp last month. He is the fifth Falcon to be invited in the past three years. "It was an unbelievable experience," Gunner said. "It was always been a dream to wear an NHL logo on my chest. I feel like I did well. I felt comfortable with most...

  • Air Force QB Kale Pearson improved his arm strength with time on the ground

    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 my butt," Pearson said. "Then I progressed to one knee, and I...

  • Ramsey: Air Force QB Karson Roberts waits for another Reno

    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 yards rushing in his college football debut. Well, none...

  • Air Force tailback Devin Rushing back from injury-related exile

    Devin Rushing returned from exile this week fully aware that he had at least temporarily lost his starting spot. His new number though? Come on. "They took my jersey," said Rushing, the junior Air Force tailback who had switched from No. 31 to 3 early in August. "I talked to the equipment manager and he said my jersey is still in there with...

  • WATCH: Air Force coach Troy Calhoun accepts ice bucket challenge in honor of former teammate

    Air Force coach Troy Calhoun put on a retro jersey and was doused with freezing water Monday evening after football practice. It was a fun moment for the team but performed in honor of a grave cause. The jersey Calhoun wore for his ice bucket challenge belonged to his former teammate, cornerback Kreg Palko, a 1988 Air Force graduate...

  • Deep sophomore class holds the key to Air Force's success now and in the future

    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 laying in a horse stable next to teammates Hayes Linn and...

  • Air Force receiver Garrett Brown ready to make plays

    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, he was fielding offers from Towson, Wofford and having...

  • Ramsey: Air Force's Pearson makes his audacious vision come true

    On a sunny evening in March, Air Force quarterback Kale Pearson stood alone watching a crowd interview fellow QB Nate Romine. A scrimmage had just ended. Pearson, still nursing his surgically repaired right knee, could only watch his teammates beat on each other. Romine, blessed with healthy knees, ranked as star of the scrimmage and clear...

  • Air Force defensive line a position of strength in 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 his annual pre-March weight loss. "Usually I cut down a...
