  Air Force football is proceeding with a plan to fully open Falcon Stadium to fans this fall, packing a place that spent the 2020 season empty except for cadets. The academy announced on Twitter that the 2021 season includes "plans for full capacity." "We will continue to monitor state and local health guidelines as we will coordinate with public health to ensure a safe fan experience for all," athletic director Nathan Pine in a statement on social media. The Falcons will host six games - Lafayette (Sept. 4), Utah State (Sept. 18), Florida Atlantic (Sept. 25), Wyoming (Oct. 9), San Diego State (Oct. 23) and UNLV (Nov. 27). The team moved its scheduled Nov. 6 home game against Army to Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, as part of the two-year Commander's Classic. - Colorado Springs

  04/10/21 - Jordan JacksonrSr/2022, Air Force, 6-5, 275 (DS#58 DE) + More +

  Jordan Jackson thought he'd spend this past fall hauling down quarterbacks. Instead, he spent the time hauling meals around Jacksonville, Fla. The 6-foot-5, 290-pound Air Force defensive end gave an in-house interview with FalconVision director Brian Jerman that was released by the academy Wednesday afternoon. It was the first public interview conducted with one of the three dozen or so Air Force players who took turnbacks and missed the 2020 season. Jackson discussed his time away from the academy that he spent rehabbing from an injury, spending time with family and delivering food as an Uber Eats driver.

"Everything happens for a reason, I feel like," Jackson said. "Of course it was kind of tough, going home, not expecting there to be a season, and there ended up being a season." The Mountain West had announced in August 2020 that it was moving the football season to the spring because of the coronavirus. About a month later it reversed that decision and forged ahead with a shortened season. During that interim period, around 40 Air Force football players decided to utilize an offer then-superintendent Lt. Gen. Jay Silveria offered to all cadets to utilize the turnback program because of the pandemic. Turnbacks allow cadets to separate for a period of time - in this case a semester - with the missed time tacked onto the end of their time at the academy. For those, like Jackson, who were initially scheduled to graduate next month, they will instead graduate in December 2021 and be able to play during the 2021 season. - Colorado Springs Gazette

  02/16/21 - Donald Hammond IIISr/2021, Air Force, 6-0, 228 (DS#24 QB) + More +

  Quarterback Donald Hammond III is no longer at the Air Force Academy and hopes to take his next snaps in the NFL. Hammond, a standout for the Falcons as a sophomore and junior during the 2018-19 seasons, provided the updates on Twitter on Monday. The announcement followed a turbulent time for Hammond. In late July, the academy responded to an inquiry from The Gazette to say that Hammond was no longer a cadet in good standing. The drop in standing kept him from playing during his senior season, which was truncated to six games instead of 12 because of COVID-19. In October, Hammond placed his name in the transfer portal to "see where everything goes from here," he told The Gazette at the time. - Colorado Springs Gazette

  Air Force senior Parker Ferguson has been selected to play in the Hula Bowl in Honolulu, Hawaii, January 31 in Aloha Stadium. Ferguson is the first Air Force offensive lineman selected for the game since Ross Weaver in 2005. This season marks the second straight the Falcons have had a player selected for the all-star game, as Mosese Fifita played in last year's game. Ferguson was a first-team all-Mountain West selection this season. He was also named to the Outland Trophy Watch List while helping to anchor an offensive line that earned mid-season watch list honors for the Joe Moore Award, given annual to the nation's best offensive line. - Air Force Football

  Peterson impacted the Utah State game as a receiver, catching two passes for 73 yards - including a 49-yard reception for his first-career touchdown. He was also a blocking force on the edge, taking out two defenders on a 21-yard touchdown run for Kadin Remsberg and continuing to provide key blocks throughout the game. He also returned a punt for five yards. - Colorado Springs Gazette

  Haaziq Daniels had the longest touchdown pass of his career and one of four Air Force rushing touchdowns and the Falcons dominated Utah State 35-7 on Thursday night. Haazig hooked up with Ben Peterson for a 14-7 lead early in the second quarter. For Peterson it was also the longest reception of his career. Daniels' 37-yard rushing touchdown just 52 seconds before halftime was the backbreaker for Air Force as it capped a 99-yard drive.

Matthew Murla capped a 71-yard drive - the shortest of the night for the Falcons - with a 1-yard plunge in the third quarter and Brad Roberts bulled in from 15-yards out to cap the scoring in the fourth quarter. Kadin Remsberg's 21-yard run tied the game late in the first quarter. Andrew Peasley's 4-yard touchdown pass to Jordan Nathan put Utah State on top midway through the first quarter. Air Force (3-2, 2-2 Mountain West Conference), rushed for 334 yards and had 127 on the ground. Remsberg piled up 107 yards and Roberts had 98. Utah State (1-4, 1-4) was held to 232 yards. Peasley passed for 123 yards and ran for 53. - AP College Football

  Air Force's offensive line was among 22 in the nation to earn a spot on the midseason honor roll from the Joe Moore Award. Army and San Diego State were also included on the honor roll, as was the line from No. 1 Alabama. Air Force leads the nation in rushing yards at 336.5 yards per game. The award's committee said the Falcons "have found a way to lead the country in rushing under extremely challenging conditions and injuries to key players. Tough and physical at point of attack and look to finish whenever they can. Play with tight bases and run off the football and accelerate on contact. People movers. Scrappy. Well coached triple team that runs a fair amount of outside zone, power, lead, and it's all fun to watch." - Colorado Springs Gazette

  11/25/20 - Kyle PattersonSo/2023, Air Force, 6-5, 245 (DS#32 TE) + More +

  Kyle Patterson chose Air Force knowing tight ends might not see the ball very often. In fact, that's kind of why he made the choice over offers from schools that included Alabama, Arizona and Washington. Blocking was that cool, he decided. "During high school that was usually what I would do," Patterson said. "Eighty percent of the time I was run blocking." Air Force is asking the sophomore to do a bit more than that. Through four games, Patterson leads the team with nine catches for 144 yards, and his touchdown at San Jose State remains the Falcons' lone touchdown reception.

His nine grabs are already more than Air Force's tight ends averaged (8.25) over the past four seasons. He has shown why he has caused a rethinking of the passing distribution with a 28-yard catch on a third-and-13 play in the first quarter of a 28-0 victory over New Mexico on Friday. Using his 6-foot-6, 245-pound frame as a starting point, he elevated above two defenders to high-point the ball and move the chains. "I've found my home here," said the Gilbert, Ariz., native and son of former Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Shawn Patterson. "I'm starting to thrive, which is great. Love the offense, all the teammates - great guys. - Colorado Springs Gazette

  11/25/20 - Brad RobertsSo/2023, Air Force, 5-11, 200 (DS#999 FB) + More +

  Brad Roberts' career spans just six quarters for Air Force. In that short time, the fullback has gained a team-high 280 yards. With an urgency reminiscent of the manner in which he hits a hole, this sophomore has thrust himself into prominence in the Falcons' offense and was rewarded Monday with Mountain West offensive player of the week honors. Roberts ran for 177 yards and three touchdowns on 28 carries against New Mexico in a 28-0 victory Friday night. It was his first start and full game. "There's no quit in the guy," coach Troy Calhoun said after the game, calling Roberts "a warrior."

Roberts, an Arvada native, made his first appearance in the second half of the season-opening 40-7 victory over Navy. He ran for 102 yards in that game with a touchdown. For unspecified reasons, he then sat the next two games before being moved into the starting lineup when Timothy Jackson was unavailable against the Lobos. Roberts ran for two first-half touchdowns as Air Force built a 21-0 lead. Roberts was not made available to media following the game as he received treatment. "The thing I like most about him, he gets to the hole fast," left guard Nolan Laufenberg said. - Colorado Springs Gazette
