  • Air Force starts slow but revs past Nicholls State

    Air Force took about 20 minutes to get the engines running, but it was spectacular after that point.

  • Tigers in Europe, AFA commit, Eric Rud, NCHC officials award, Carlo, Howe

  • Change is in the cushion for Air Force cornerbacks

    Need any more proof that Air Force has changed its defensive philosophy? Just look at the personnel. In as a starter is Jordan Mays, a 6-foot-1, 195-pound converted safety who is perhaps the strongest defensive back on the roster. Out, for now, is Gavin McHenry, a swift track standout who started all 12 games last year. In short, muscle won...

  • Air Force opens men's soccer season with first home against Navy since 1984

    An oddly long drought will end Friday when Navy's men's soccer team travels to Air Force for the season opener. The Midshipmen haven't played at Air Force since 1984. "It's should be a great environment, a great way to open up," Air Force coach Doug Hill said. The game will be one of two in the season's first three contests against service...

  • Nicholls State could be a dangerous foe for Air Force

  • Kale Pearson ready to go full out after injury as Air Force starting quarterback

    Kale Pearson is back from a torn ACL, fast as ever and the undisputed champion of a three-way battle to start at quarterback for Air Force. However, he also remains just 5-foot-9, 175 pounds. This size was a concern for Falcons fans last year. Pearson entered his first season as the starting quarterback, and, sure enough, his season ended...

  • Air Force hires former Drake coach Kurt Kanaskie as men's basketball assistant

    Air Force men's basketball wasted no time filling an opening on its coaching staff, announcing the hiring of Kurt Kanaskie the day after Steve Snell departed for Santa Clara.
