Air Force Falcons fall to Nevada Wolf Pack by an inch

Air Force quarterback Arion Worthman will serve as an acquisitions officer in Los Angeles following graduation.

The United States Air Force will gain 77 pilots from the academy’s graduating class of athletes, including all four members of the golf team and all three from rifle.

In the weeks following Thursday’s commencement ceremony, former Falcons will scatter to points ranging from Colorado Springs to Japan.

The football team will spread its 31 grads among nine states for work in nine fields, including pilot training, cyberspace, intelligence, acquisitions, remote piloted aircraft, missiles, logistics, space ops and civil engineering. Coach Mike Kazlausky’s baseball team will send eight of its 12 grads to pilot training and of the seven hockey grads, two will attend graduate school and two others will serve in a medical field.
