 Donald Hammond III, Air Force, Player News


  Air Force quarterback Donald Hammond III is in the NCAA transfer portal, but that doesn't mean his fate is sealed at the academy. Hammond, expected to be among the top players in the Mountain West this season, lost his eligibility when he lost his good standing as a cadet during this past offseason. The move to enter the portal - first reported by Rivals.com - is an attempt to keep options open as his situation continues to develop. The portal was designed by the NCAA to bring transparency to the transfer process and empower student-athletes considering a move, but it does not mean a player must leave. Air Force basketball player A.J. Walker, for example, entered the portal this past spring but opted to stay. "I put my name in the transfer portal, and I'll see where everything goes from here," Hammond wrote on Twitter.

There would be hurdles to clear for Hammond to play elsewhere. Cadets become locked into a military commitment after beginning their junior year. They cannot voluntarily leave after that point, and those removed from the academy for violations as juniors and seniors are still expected to complete the military commitment as enlisted airmen and could be required to pay the cost of their education. Hammond took over as the starting quarterback for Air Force midway through his sophomore year. As a junior he led the team to a 12-1 record and a No. 21 final ranking by the Associated Press. He is the Falcons' career leader in passing efficiency (164.09) and his .750 winning percentage as a starter ranks third behind Blane Morgan and Bart Weiss in program history. - Colorado Springs Gazette

  Air Force could be without its star quarterback if it plays the 2020 football season. "Donald Hammond is no longer a cadet in good standing and cannot represent the academy in outside activities," Air Force said in a statement to The Gazette. No information was provided Saturday for the violation that led to Hammond's drop in status. Other athletes who have dropped in status have missed at least a season's worth of competition. This list includes recent football players Cole Fagan, David Cormier and Brandon Lewis and women's basketball player Kassady Huffman. - The Gazette

  Donald Hammond III ran for a touchdown and threw for three more, including a go-ahead 50-yard pass to Geraud Sanders early in the fourth quarter as Air Force shook off an early two-touchdown deficit to beat Colorado State 38-21 on Saturday night. Sanders came open on a short crossing route and Hammond hit him in stride, allowing the receiver to break up field along the left sideline and then cut back all the way across the field, outrunning his pursuers to the goal line. The score was part of a string of 24 straight points for Air Force (8-2, 5-1 Mountain West), which won its fifth straight. It's the longest winning streak for the Falcons since closing the 2016 season with six consecutive victories.

Hammond added a 28-yard touchdown pass to Benjamin Waters later in the fourth quarter after earlier hitting him with a 31-yard score. Patrick O'Brien threw for two touchdowns, including a 17-yard score to Dante Wright with 6:36 remaining that pulled the Rams (4-6, 3-3) within three points. But the Falcons responded by grinding out another scoring drive that Hammond capped with a 1-yard run with 2:32 left to play. The Rams mounted another drive that reached the Air Force 1, but cornerback Zane Lewis stepped in front of O'Brien's goal-line pass and returned the interception 99 yards for a touchdown to seal the Falcons' fourth win in a row against the Rams. - Air Force/AP College Football

  Air Force was in no rush to pass. So the Falcons just rushed their way to a runaway win. Donald Hammond III scored three of Air Force's seven rushing touchdowns and the Falcons ran their record to 24-0 against teams from the Football Championship Subdivision by beating Colgate 48-7 on Saturday. Kadin Remsberg added two scores for Air Force, which moved to 13-0 in season openers under coach Troy Calhoun. The Falcons didn't throw a pass until the third quarter - their only attempt of the game. There was no need to air it out as they amassed 423 yards on the ground. Fullback Taven Birdow gained 80 yards to lead a balanced rushing attack.

"We were more physical than them. They weren't ready for us to be physical with them," Hammond said. "They were playing kind of soft so we shoved it down their throat." With lightning in the area at halftime, the crowd was encouraged to head to their cars and wait out the approximately 30-minute delay. Many didn't return with the score already 35-0. Air Force's defense did its part with an interception, fumble recovery, two sacks and a fourth-down stop. It all added up to a long afternoon for Colgate (0-2), the preseason pick to win the Patriot League. Quarterback Grant Breneman and the Raiders avoided a shutout late in the third when Breneman found Nick Gill for a 13-yard score. - AP College Football
