  • 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.

  • Top Air Force men's basketball assistant Steve Snell leaves for Santa Clara

    Ron Vanderlinden came to Air Force this past offseason after spending 13 years coaching linebackers at Penn State.

  • Air Force struggles receive no sympathy from conference foes

    Colorado State coach Jim McElwain's first trip to Air Force produced "the most humiliating loss in my entire life."
