  • Air Force football notes: WR Gagliano no longer with team

    Gagliano no longer on team Wide receiver Sam Gagliano has been dropped from the Air Force football team for reasons that coach Troy Calhoun would describe only as a "coach's decision." "He's not on our team right now," Calhoun said. "That's a coach's decision. Right now he's not on our squad. "There's some things that you've got to prove...

  • Two-week crash course

    Christian Spears could hardly contain his smile Thursday. Yes, the senior safety was excited to be back on the practice field to begin his final football season at Air Force. But also, just hours before, he had completed his final in Astronautical Engineering and felt like he nailed it. "I feel kind of cool to be able to say I did it,"...

  • Ball says he's no longer intimidated by Manning

    ENGLEWOOD — Montee Ball acknowledges he was "a little bit" intimidated by Peyton Manning last year, something he says contributed to his slow start. Trying to please the famously meticulous quarterback is enough to unnerve any rookie, even one who ran for an NCAA-record 83 touchdowns at Wisconsin. "He did a great job of calming me down,...

  • Dustin Johnson takes leave of absence from PGA; affair rumored along with drug problem

    AKRON, Ohio — Dustin Johnson is taking a leave of absence from golf to seek help for "personal challenges," a swift end to his season that will keep him from playing the PGA Championship, the FedEx Cup playoffs and the Ryder Cup. In a statement Thursday from Hambric Sports Management, the 30-year-old Johnson said his leave of absence was...

  • Sky Sox end 3-game losing streak, split doubleheader

    There were good feelings aplenty after Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader, but those didn't last. Right-handed pitcher Jordan Lyles threw a strong five innings in a rehabilitation start for Colorado Springs and the Sky Sox ended a three-game losing streak with a convincing 6-0 win over the Nashville Sounds. With a 5-4 Game 2 win, Nashville...

  • Air Force football coach Troy Calhoun gives away lunches

    Troy Calhoun never got a chance to eat lunch Thursday. A bunch of his friends did, though. Then he picked up the bill. The Air Force football coach stood so close to the Chick-fil-A at North Carefree Circle and Powers Boulevard that he certainly could smell the restaurant's chicken sandwiches and waffle fries drifting through the air. But...

  • Air Force notes: Kale Pearson back at 100 percent

    Pearson back at 100 percent Senior Kale Pearson participated in spring practice for Air Force, but being only five months removed from surgery to repair a torn ACL he did so in limited fashion. He ran only straight ahead - no cutting - and took far fewer reps than his fellow quarterbacks. He had no such limitations on Thursday as the...

  • Lexus signs 2-year deal to sponsor Colorado race

    DENVER — Lexus has signed a two-year contract to sponsor the USA Pro Cycling Challenge as part of a move by the luxury automaker to get more involved with the sport on a global basis.

  • Julius Thomas stays hungry after Pro Bowl year

    ENGLEWOOD — Even after the fog lifted from the Denver Broncos' blowout in the Super Bowl, Julius Thomas was in no mood to celebrate his breakout season. Coming off a Pro Bowl year in which he was a bulls-eye for many of Peyton Manning's biggest moments, it would have been easy for Thomas to sit back and act as if he's finally arrived after...

  • No trades and another loss for Rockies at deadline

    CHICAGO — As expected, the Colorado Rockies were inactive before the non-waiver trade deadline Thursday. During the game, the Rockies were quiet again, too. Pedro Hernandez pitched admirably in his first start in the major leagues this season, but Cubs counterpart Jake Arrieta was a bit better and Colorado lost 3-1 to the Chicago Cubs on...
