After every game the Falcons stand hand-in-hand in front of the cadet wing as the Drum and Bugle Corps plays the alma mater (middle). Prior to every service academy game, the “prisoners of war� are exchanged at midfield. The POWs are exchange cadets from the other academies who sit with their respective academies during the game (above).

One of the only performing mascots in the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision, the Falcon swoops in on the lure at halftime during a game last season (bottom). After every Falcon score, the cadets storm the field and do pushups for every Air Force point on the board (center). In Air Force’s 6521 win over Northwestern State last season, the cadets did 352 pushups.

Service academy games are the ultimate experience of sportsmanship, competitiveness and respect. Falcon fans are well aware of this as nearly 700,000 people have watched the Falcons play Army and Navy in the last 15 years, averaging over 45,000 fans per game. Nine of AFA’s top 15 crowds have come against Army and Navy.

Service academy week is a special time at the Air Force Academy. Prior to the game, the prisoners of war are exchanged. Each academy has several exchange cadets from their fellow academies. Prior to the service academy game, these cadets are exchanged by the wing or brigadier commanders of the academies so they can sit on their own side during the game. The “prisoner of war” exchange is usually highlighted by the cadets having a message taped to their backs.

No other games on the schedule arouse such passion and unrelenting battle followed by respect and admiration as the service academy contests. After nearly three hours of raging war on the field, each team respectfully stands at attention for each other’s school song. These warriors know that following the battles on the playing field, they will one day fight and serve together in the armed forces.

The Bullard Award The Bullard Award is voted on by the team based on the criteria that typifies Brian Bullard - unselfishness, 110 percent effort, total team commitment and pride in his role on the team whether he’s a starter or not. A memorial is located in the Falcon Athletic Center so that every football player sees it every day. The memorial has Brian’s picture and the name and photo of each year’s winner. A 1982 graduate of Air Academy High School in Colorado Springs, Brian attended the Academy the following year. After playing on the junior varsity his freshman year, he made the varsity and lettered as a sophomore in 1983. During Thanksgiving vacation that year, Brian, a member of Cadet Squadron 27, and cadet Dianne Williams of Cameron, Mo., were returning from Kansas and were caught in a snow storm. The two died from carbon monoxide poisoning. Williams was a member of Cadet Squadron 33 and played on the women’s varsity golf team. The Brian Bullard award is presented annually at the Falcon football team banquet. Brian was the epitome of everything Air Force Football stands for. Brian’s life is used not only for motivation, but as the benchmark each Falcon football player should strive to attain. The criteria established for the award were taken directly from the life of Brian Bullard. The recipient of this prestigious award cares about the team first and himself second. He loves his team and his teammates and will do everything he can to make his brothers better. He is a source of encouragement for everyone and truly leads by example. He gives his all and truly enjoys every practice. He shows great pride in his role on the team and is a pleasure to coach. Though he played just two seasons with the football team, Brian left quite an impression.

Senior Nathan Walker was the recipient of the Brian Bullard award at the 2010 Air Force Football Awards Banquet. Walker, from Colorado Springs, Colo., finished fourth on the team in rushing with 470 yards, averaging 4.6 yards per carry. He was second on the team in rushing touchdowns with six. With a career-best 109 yards and a touchdown against Army, he posted the first 100yard game of his career. He also picked up a key third-and-21 with a 21-yard run to set up an Air Force touchdown. Walker added 95 yards and a touchdown the following week against New Mexico.

Less than 45 minutes from the Academy and with over 300 days of sunshine per year, The Mile High City of Denver has it all. Truly a sports capitol, Denver has nine professional sports teams, including the Denver Broncos (NFL), Denver Nuggets (NBA), Colorado Avalanche (NHL), Colorado Rockies (MLB), Colorado Rapids (Major League Soccer), Denver Dynamite (Indoor Soccer League), Denver Outlaws (Major League Lacrosse) and the Colorado Mammoth (National Lacrosse League). Recent success among the teams has driven the excitement for these teams a mountain high. The Broncos won the Super Bowl in 1998 and 1999. The Avalanche won the Stanley Cup in 1996 and 2001. The Rockies played in the World Series in 2007. Located just east of the Rocky Mountains and the Continental Divide, Denver has a mild and dry climate with more days of sunshine per year than San Diego and Miami. Golf courses are open year round as the average winter temperature is 45 degrees, warmer than Boston, New York City and St. Louis. The city sits at 5,280 feet above sea level. In fact, there is a step on the State Capitol Building that is exactly one mile above sea level. Even at a mile above sea

24 -- Air Force Football 2011

level, the city is dwarfed by its backdrop. The foothills being just west of the city and the peaks of the mountain range reach heights of more than 14,000 feet. Despite the proximity to the mountains, the city receives just 8-15 inches of precipitation per year, about the same as Los Angeles. The United States Census Bureau estimates that, in 2006, the population of the City and County of Denver was 566,974, making it the 27th most populous U.S. city. The Denver-Aurora Metropolitan Statistical Area had an estimated 2006 population of 2,408,750 and ranked as the 21st most populous U.S. metropolitan statistical area. Denver has the largest city park system in the nation. There are 650 miles of off-street, bike paths, 90 golf courses and 200 parks. Within a 90-minute drive from downtown Denver, there are opportunities for some of the country’s best skiing, hiking, fishing, rafting and mountain biking.

Colorado Springs was ranked in 2007 as the No. 1 Best Big City (over 300,000) to Live by Money Magazine based on quality of life, climate, social activities, cleanliness and safety.

When teacher and poet Katherine Lee Bates took a wagon ride to the summit of Pikes Peak she was inspired to write a song that is still recited today. Her view from atop the 14,110-foot peak was the basis of her song “America the Beautiful”. The history of Colorado Springs traverses back to 1870 when Gen. William Jackson Palmer first visited the region and was captivated by its grandeur. A year later, he began designing his city of dreams. From its beginning on the corner of Pikes Peak and Cascade Avenues in downtown Colorado Springs, the city has grown more than 183 square miles and to nearly 400,000 people in the city and 600,000 in the metro area. Colorado Springs is known nationally for its natural attractions. The Garden of the Gods, the area’s No. 1 natural attraction, is a majestic out-cropping of red sandstone rocks which are more than 300 million years old. Colorado Springs is also home to the Pikes Peak Highway, a 19-mile drive up the world’s highest toll

road. The area’s No. 1 man-made attraction is the Air Force Academy’s Cadet Chapel.

Another major attraction is the Broadmoor Hotel and Resort. Built in the early 1900s, this five-star resort, hosted the 1995 U.S. Women’s Open Golf Championship and the 2008 Senior U.S. Open, and is nestled into the base of Cheyenne Mountain. The Pikes Peak region is home to the nation’s only mountain zoo. The Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, with an elevation of more than 6,800feet, has received several changes in the past two years. For the outdoors enthusiast, the city and the state offer a plethora of recreational activities. A short drive to the northwest features some of the nation’s finest ski resorts, including the cities of Vail and Aspen. A short jaunt to the southwest or northwest will find some of the best white-water rafting, fishing, hiking and cycling that the country has to offer. Valuing its past with a vision for the future, Colorado Springs is truly a city with unparalleled culture, recreation, growth and opportunity in the 21st century.

A picturesque setting at the base of the Rampart Range of the Rocky Mountains and boasting some of the grandest pageantry in all of college football, Falcon Stadium is without a doubt one of the premier college football stadiums in America. Sitting at 6,621 feet above sea level, the thin air has been kind to the Falcons. Air Force has won 61 percent of its home games in the stadium with a 162-104-4 all-time home record. Falcon Stadium’s elevation is the second-highest of any Division I-A stadium in the nation. The stadium’s current capacity is 46,692. Falcon Stadium, built in a natural bowl in the foothills, was built in the fall of 1962 at a cost of $3.5 million. Falcon Stadium opened on Sept. 22, 1962, when a then-overflow crowd of 41,350 saw Air Force defeat Colorado State, 24-0. AFA held a formal dedication on Oct. 20, 1962, when Air Force hosted Oregon. The Ducks won the game, 35-20. The stadium was originally built solely for football, but several non-athletic events, such as the Academy’s annual graduation, are conducted there. Since 1962, the stadium has seen several significant upgrades. In 1991, the Academy installed nine skyboxes and remodeled the existing press box. The facility currently seats 450 people indoors, along with 88 in the skyboxes. In addition to its game-day uses, the press box is also used by the athletic department as a banquet/meeting room.

In 2002, the Academy added permanent lights. The cost of just under $500,000 was at no expense to tax payers. The Air Force Academy Athletic Association picked up the tab. That same season, a school record crowd of 56,409 packed the stadium against for a game against Notre Dame. In 2004, a new scoreboard was installed. The board features a video screen and message board and replaced the old board at the south end of the field. Throughout the 1990’s and early 2000’s, the stadium’s capacity was 52,480 but in 2005, the stadium’s capacity was reduced to 46,692 (the current capacity). The removal of the bleachers on the east side greatly increased the fan experience with additional food and beverage vendors and more room to move around the stadium. Prior to the 2006 season, FieldTurf was installed at a cost of $750,000. The new turf covers 84,480 square feet with an additional 26,520 square feet of native grass surrounding it. The scenic backdrop, the game-day experience and the recent upgrades have ensured that Falcon Stadium is among the best venues in all of college football. The proof is in the ranking as CBS Sports (March 2011) ranked Falcon Stadium the 22nd best in college football, higher than any other Mountain West institution.

The Falcon Athletic Center (FAC), completed in July 2003, has proven to be one of the nation's best facilities. The facility was part of a military construction project that not only built the new building, but altered the existing Cadet Field House. The $30.3 million project included 161,000 total square feet, including the Falcon Athletic Center's 109,000 square feet and a 51,000 square foot renovation of the Cadet Field House, completed in March 2004. Student-athletes' schedules at the Academy are institutionally driven, unlike that of most civilian schools where student-athletes have much more free time. Student-athletes at the Academy are allotted from 2:30 to 6:30 p.m. daily for athletic pursuits. That time must be used for practice, transit to and from the dormitory area and the Cadet Gymnasium or Cadet Field House,

medical taping and treatment and conditioning in the weight room. In addition, competition at the NCAA Division I level has become a year-round proposition for all athletes, whether they are cadets or their counterparts at civilian institutions. Understanding that the Academy enrollment of 4,000 consists of roughly 25 percent student-athletes (1,000), the existing athletic facilities were taxed. The same was true for the existing medical treatment and weight room facilities. In addition to the student-athletes, the Academy also uses these facilities for its massive intramural sports program. The 3,000 cadets who are not intercollegiate athletes participate in intramural activities adding about 1,200 to 1,500 cadets in the athletic facilities at the same time.

The 23,000 square foot, two-story weight training facility is on the first level, along with areas for equipment storage. The new sports medicine facility, equipment room, football coaches offices and football locker room are on the second level of the building. The reception area for the football offices displays the history of Falcon football. The third floor is home to the Hall of Excellence which features the history of the Academy’s intercollegiate and intramural programs, along with the inductees into the Athletic Hall of Fame. This area gives guests and visitors the opportunity to visit the history of Academy athletics along with a theatre and interactive displays. The fourth level is for athletic administration.


The dream became a reality on Oct. 1, 2010, as the USAFA Endowment, on behalf of the United States Air Force Academy and the Association of Graduates, hosted a groundbreaking ceremony for the new Holaday Athletic Center. The project was made possible by a generous lead gift of $5 million from Bart and Lynn Holaday, Class of 1965-the largest gift from a graduate to the Academy in the institution's history. The Holaday Athletic Center, an indoor athletic training facility, is also unique in that it is the largest privately funded capital project in Academy history. Construction began in October 2010 and was completed in July 2011. The

92,000 square-foot center houses a regulation-sized field that can accommodate football, lacrosse and soccer, in addition to many other athletic activities. Cadet athletic development and performance will be enhanced through reduced weather delays, increased practice time and improved replication of game conditions that the facility provides. "Today is one of the most exciting days in the history of Air Force athletics," said Air Force Director of Athletics Dr. Hans Mueh on the day of ground-breaking. "Air Force athletics is not just our 27 intercollegiate sports, but also encompasses intramurals, physical education classes and cadet physical fitness training. Air Force ath-

letics touches every cadet here at the Academy and because of this generous gift from Bart and Lynn Holaday and others who have given, we will continue to have the very best facilities to provide total team and player development, benefiting all cadets and enhancing the Academy's overall success in intercollegiate and intramural athletics." Three days after the ground-breaking ceremony, construction began to level the ground north of the Cadet Field House and continued steadily throughout the winter. A ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Holaday Athletic Center was scheduled for July 22, 2011. The new facility will be ready for intercollegiate teams to practice indoors this fall.

The Air Force Academy The United States Air Force Academy offers a fouryear program of instruction and experience designed to educate, train and inspire men and women to become officers of character, motivated to lead the United States Air Force in service to our nation. Each cadet graduates with a bachelor of science degree and a commission as a second lieutenant in the Air Force. COURSE OF STUDY Cadets are exposed to a balanced curriculum that provides the knowledge, skills and responsibilities essential to a career Air Force officer. The entire USAFA experience is integrated and mapped to achieve a set of desired outcomes in every graduate. The core academic curriculum includes courses in basic sciences, engineering, social sciences and humanities. Cadets take additional elective courses to complete requirements for one of 32 major areas of study. About 50 percent of the cadets complete majors in science and engineering; the remainder graduate in the social sciences and humanities. Some of the most popular majors include management, aeronautical engineering, foreign area studies, history, behavioral science, civil engineering, astronautical engineering, electrical engineering and engineering mechanics. FACULTY COMPOSITION The majority of the Academy's faculty members, more than 500 total, are Air Force officers. They are selected primarily from career-officer volunteers who have established outstanding records of performance and dedication. Each has at least a master's degree and more than 55 percent have doctorates or other terminal degrees in their field of study. About 30 percent of the faculty are civilians who bring great depth of disciplinary and educational expertise and provide academic stability and continuity. Faculty members are intensely focused on cadet learning as an integral part of their officer development. The Air Force Academy has been ranked No. 1 in the nation for the most accessible and involved faculty for four years in a row. To provide greater contributions by a diverse faculty, the Academy has several distinguished visiting professors and endowed professors who serve one or more years. Officers from other services, as well as officers from allied countries are also members of the faculty. Distinguished civilian and military lecturers also share their expertise with the cadets during the academic year. ATHLETIC PROGRAM The Academy's athletic program is designed to improve physical fitness, teach athletic skills and develop leadership qualities. To

achieve its goals, the Academy offers some of the most extensive physical education, intramural sports and intercollegiate athletic programs in the nation. Cadets take at least three different physical education courses each year. MILITARY EDUCATION AND TRAINING An air, space and cyberspace-oriented military education, training and leadership program begins with basic cadet training and continues throughout the four years. Seniors are responsible for the organizational leadership of the cadet wing, while juniors and sophomores seek to develop team and interpersonal leadership and instructional skills. Cadets are projected into as many active leadership roles as possible to prepare them to be effective Air Force officers. Fundamental concepts of military organization -- drill, ethics, honor, Air Force heritage and physical training -- are emphasized the first summer during basic cadet training. Freshmen then study the military role in United States society as well as the mission and organization of the Air Force. Sophomores receive instruction in communication skills and juniors study the combat and operational aspects of the Air Force. The Academy offers courses in flying, navigation, soaring and parachuting, building from basic skills to instructor duties. Some cadets may fly light aircraft with the Cadet Flying Team. Summer training for cadets is divided into three, three-week training periods. There are a variety of programs available and each cadet is required to complete two training periods each summer with leave during the other period. All new cadets take six weeks of basic cadet training in their first summer. Combat survival training is a required three-week program during cadets' second summer. For other second-summer training periods, cadets have options such as working with Airmen in an operational unit at an Air Force installation, airborne parachute training, soaring or basic free-fall parachute training. During their last two summers, all cadets are offered leadership training as supervisors or instructors in the summer programs listed above. Extracurricular activities also are an integral part of the education program. The cadet ski club, drum and bugle corps, cadet chorale and forensics are a few of the programs available. NOMINATIONS Nominations to the Academy may be obtained through a congressional sponsor or by meeting eligibility criteria in other categories of competition established by law. For information on admission procedures, write to HQ USAFA/RRS; 2304 Cadet Drive, Suite 200; USAF Academy, CO 80840-5025 or go to www.usafa.edu.

HISTORY OF THE ACADEMY In 1948, a board of leading civilian and military educators was appointed to plan the curriculum for an academy that would meet the needs of the newly established Air Force. The board determined that Air Force requirements could not be met by expanding the other service academies and recommended an Air Force Academy be established without delay. In 1949, then Secretary of the Air Force W. Stuart Symington appointed a commission to assist in selecting a site and on April 1, 1954, President Dwight D. Eisenhower authorized creation of the United States Air Force Academy. After considering 580 sites in 45 states, the commission narrowed the choice to three locations. The summer of 1954, Secretary of the Air Force Harold Talbott selected a site near Colorado Springs, Colo. Colorado contributed $1 million toward purchase of the property. In July 1955, the first Academy class entered interim facilities at Lowry Air Force Base, Denver, while construction began. It was sufficiently completed for occupancy by the cadet wing in late August 1958. Initial construction cost was $142 million. Women entered the Academy on June 28, 1976, as members of the class of 1980.

Director of Athletics

Dr. Hans J. Mueh Director of Athletics Dr. Hans J. Mueh is in his eighth year as the director of athletics at the Air Force Academy. A retired Air Force brigadier general, Mueh was vice dean of faculty for two years prior to his retirement from active duty in the summer of 2004. Mueh was heavily involved in Academy athletics before becoming director of athletics. He was the Academy's faculty athletics representative from 1996-2004 and was a long-time member of the board of directors for the Air Force Academy Athletics Association. Since becoming the director of athletics, Mueh has led the Academy to some remarkable feats. In 2007, the Academy was one of only three schools (Michigan State and Boston College) to reach post-season play in football (2007), men’s basketball and ice hockey (2006-07). It marked the first time a service academy has ever had a team compete in the post-season in all three sports. In addition, under Mueh’s watch the men’s basketball team has played in another NCAA tournament and the National Invitational Tournament’s Final Four. The ice hockey team has won the conference championship and advanced to the NCAA tournament four of the last five years. Mueh was on the selection committee that hired current head coach Frank Serratore and led the Academy’s move into the Athletic Hockey Association. The football program, the Academy’s flagship sport, has gone through a major overhaul under Mueh. He led the transition from the retirement of the legendary Fisher DeBerry after 23 years at the helm to hiring current head coach Troy Calhoun, a 1989 Academy graduate. Calhoun’s impact was immediate, leading the Falcons to a 9-4 overall mark and a second-place finish in the Mountain West Conference in 2007. The Falcons qualified for their first bowl game in five years, playing in the Armed Forces Bowl in 2007. The program then posted back-to-back eight-win seasons and was 9-4 last year while qualifying for bowl games every year. The school has averaged 9,000 bowl tickets sold during the four-year run. Mueh has been just as successful behind the scenes with the administration of the department. Mueh restructured the department with an internal/external model that has streamlined resources and made the department more effective from top to bottom. In addition, he has the department on course to become a federally chartered non-profit organization which will lead to more fund-raising opportunities.

Eighth Year

Mueh was instrumental in the USAFA Endowment and the announcement of the Holaday Athletic Center, an indoor training facility. The $15 million facility was completed in July 2011. Mueh has also been active within the conference and the NCAA. He was recently selected to be part of the NCAA Division I Amateurism Cabinet and has been active on the NCAA’s academics/eligibility compliance cabinet, the men’s golf committee and the region 7 postgraduate scholarship committee. Mueh has been equally active within the conference on various leadership committees. He is currently on the awards and recognition committee and has previously served on the joint council executive committee, and committees on championships, television and sportsmanship. Before assuming his duties as vice dean at the Academy, Mueh was permanent professor and head of the department of chemistry at the Academy, a position he held since October 1987 where he oversaw the annual design and instruction of 25 undergraduate courses for 1,500 cadets annually.

earned his master's degree in chemistry in 1970. He later earned a doctorate degree in chemistry from Wisconsin in 1976 as a distinguished graduate. He has also completed Squadron Officer School, Air Command and Staff College and Air War College. Between earning the two degrees, Mueh returned to the Academy as an instructor in the department of chemistry from 1970-72. He also served as assistant soccer coach and played semi-pro soccer with the Aurora Internationals in Denver during those two years, leading the Internationals to the Colorado state title in 1971. He volunteered for duty in Vietnam and served as an intelligence officer in Saigon, Republic of Vietnam and at Nakhon Phanom RTAB, Thailand, in 1972 and 1973. After earning his doctorate degree, Mueh returned to the Academy in 1976 as an associate professor of chemistry. He remained at the Academy except for a stint in 1985-86 as the special assistant for technical matters at the Defense Intelligence Agency at the Pentagon.

Mueh was born Jan. 8, 1944, in Celle, Germany, and emigrated to the United States in 1951. He entered the Air Force in 1962 as a member of the Academy's eighth graduating class, and graduated with a bachelor of science degree in chemistry in 1966. While at the Academy, Mueh was a two-year letterwinner in soccer as a goalie. He still holds the Academy record for saves in a game with 30, accomplishing it twice in 1965 against North Carolina and Benedictine. In his junior and senior years, Mueh helped the Falcons to the Rocky Mountain Intercollegiate Soccer League championship and quarterfinal berths in the NCAA tournament. He was a first-team allleague selection in 1965.

In 1986, he assumed the position of acting head, department of chemistry, before being selected for his position of permanent professor and head of the department of chemistry in 1987. As faculty athletics representative, he was active in both the Western Athletic Conference and Mountain West Conference, and was the Academy's representative on the transition team to form the new MWC, the only faculty athletics representative on the team. He competes in golf, racquetball, handball and tennis, and has promoted Air Force Academy intercollegiate sports throughout his tenure, beginning with work as chairman of the hockey eligibility committee, officer representative to the men's golf team and five years as the officer representative to the football team.

Following graduation, Mueh completed two assignments in intelligence before attending the University of Wisconsin where he

Mueh is married to the former Sally Flax of Cincinnati, Ohio. They have three children: Kristine, Kurt and Deborah.

Dr. Hans Mueh enters his eighth season as the Academy’s Director of Athletics. At halftime of the Utah game on Oct. 30, 2010, Mueh congratulated the men’s gymnastics team for winning the USAG National Championship.

Air Force Athletics Few schools in the country have an athletic program as extensive as the Air Force Academy's. The goals of the athletic program are to enhance the physical conditioning of all cadets, to develop the physical skills necessary for officership, to teach leadership in a competitive environment and to build character. There are three subdivisions of the athletic program: intercollegiate athletics, intramurals and physical education. The intercollegiate program has 17 men's and 10 women's NCAAsanctioned teams, facing some of the top competition in the nation. Men’s teams are football, baseball, basketball, ice hockey, cross-country, fencing, golf, gymnastics, indoor and outdoor track, lacrosse, rifle, soccer, swimming and diving, tennis, water polo and wrestling. The Academy fields women's teams in basketball, cross-country, fencing, gymnastics, rifle, indoor and outdoor track, swimming and diving, soccer, tennis and volleyball. In addition, the Academy sponsors two non-NCAA programs; boxing and cheerleading. The majority of the Academy’s men’s and women’s programs compete at the NCAA Division I level in the Mountain West Conference. The Falcons compete in this conference against teams from Boise State, Colorado State, New Mexico, San Diego State, TCU, UNLV and Wyoming. All sports also compete against non-conference opponents, including many nationally-ranked teams.

The football team competes annually for the Commander-inChief's Trophy, which is emblematic of service academy football supremacy. The Falcons have won the trophy 17 times, which is more than any other academy. The winner of the annual rivalry visits the White House to have the trophy presented by the President of the United States. The USAFA Cadet Field House is one of the most impressive buildings in the country. It’s a modern, versatile structure with seemingly endless uses. The $5.6 million building is five stories high and 396 feet by 426 feet, the size of three football fields laid side by side. The structure is divided into three areas--basketball arena, ice hockey arena and multipurpose area. The three sections have a combined seating capacity of more than 9,000. Clune Arena seats 5,858. The Cadet Ice Rink has a seating capacity of 2,470, while the multipurpose area seats 1,000 fans for track and field competitions. The department’s newest facility, the Holaday Athletic Center (pictured left), was completed in July 2011.

The Falcon Sports audiences across the country have been intrigued and delighted by the aerobatics of the falcon, the flying mascot of the U.S. Air Force Academy -- one of only two schools with performing mascots in the National Collegiate Athletic Association. The falcon can attain velocities exceeding 200 miles per hour in swoops or dives, turn sharply and streak only inches above the ground, making it the fastest and one of the most maneuverable of all birds. Trained and handled by cadet falconers, the birds soar and dive, sometimes zooming low over the heads of spectators. While their public flying performances are primarily limited to outdoor venues -- most often at football games and cadet wing parades -- the falcons appear at many other athletic contests in which cadet teams play. Members of the Class of 1959, the first to enter the Academy, chose the falcon as the mascot of the cadet wing Sept. 25, 1955, feeling that it best characterized the combat role of the U.S. Air Force. They did not specify any particular species; thus, any falcon can serve as mascot. Some of the characteristics which led to its selection were speed, powerful and graceful flight, courage, keen eyesight, alertness, regal carriage and noble tradition. The falcon exemplified the qualities sought in Air Force Academy cadets: courage, intelligence, love of the wild sky, ferocity in attack, but gentle in repose, and discipline. Experts once said falcons could not be trained to perform before huge crowds, that the birds would panic and flee. Since 1956, however, cadets have flown the birds at sporting events before thousands of cheering spectators. Six weeks or more and an average of 300 man-hours per bird are required to properly train a young falcon via operant conditioning. When a bird is in top condition, it is able to fly for more than an hour and make repeated stoops at the baited lure swung by the cadet falconer. Although they can be trained to perform, falcons are never totally domesticated and remain wild creatures with strong, individual and independent spirits. On Oct. 5, 1955, a splendid peregrine was the first falcon presented to the cadet wing. It was named “Mach 1,” referring to the

speed of sound. Today, 12 to 15 falcons are kept in the mews (enclosures for trained hawks) north of the cadet area. Current breeds of falcons at the Academy include several breeds of falcons which are native to North America, including prairie falcons, peregrine falcons, and the largest type of falcon, the gyrfalcon. The Academy recently added several gyr-saker hybrids and a gyr-peregrine hybrid to its ranks. Sakers are a strong and agile mid-to-large size breed of falcon, native to Eastern Europe and Asia. Sakers have been cross-bred with the larger gyrfalcons in recent years to produce a highly intelligent, agile and powerful breed of performing falcon, and have flown at the Academy since 2003. In addition to flying performances, the falcons and cadet falconers visit dozens of schools, scouting groups, youth groups, airshows and other public events around the country, educating youth and adults alike on falconry, raptors, the Air Force and the Air Force Academy. On June 8, 1996, the Association of Graduates purchased a female white-phase gyrfalcon from Mr. Dan Konkle in Sheridan, Wyo., and donated her to the Academy. The cadet wing named this new mascot Aurora - from Roman mythology, the goddess of the dawn. She is now the official mascot for the United States Air Force Academy and has become the center of attention for the Academy’s Falcon Mascot Program. At a mere 40 days old, this majestic creature weighed four pounds. Glacier, our previous white-phase gyrfalcon Mascot from 1980-95, only weighed two pounds. Although any falcon can serve as an Academy mascot, the white-phase gyrfalcon is native to Alaska, Canada, Greenland and the U.S.-Canadian border, and has always been the official mascot of the Air Force Academy. Gyrfalcons constitute only about five percent of the total number of falcons found in the United States. Of that five percent, only about 3-4 percent are true white-phase gyr-

WHY THE FALCON? Speed Can attain velocities exceeding 200 miles per hour in stoops or dives on their prey. Power Powerful and graceful flight, with strong, deep wing beats; they maneuver with ease, grace and evident enjoyment. Courage Fearless and aggressive, falcons fiercely defend their nest and young against intruders. They have been known to unhesitatingly attack and kill prey more than twice their size. Keen eyesight About eight times sharper than man. Alertness, regal carriage and noble tradition. falcons. Falconry is one of the extracurricular activities offered to cadets. There are usually 12 falconers, with four chosen from each new class at the end of the year to replace graduating seniors. The new falconers begin training in January under the leadership of experienced upperclassmen and the officerin-charge. Without proper instruction, novices can physically harm the birds or adversely affect their training. Falconers’ duties include daily checks of each bird’s health and condition, training sessions during which the birds are fed a measured ration of meat, frequent cleaning of the mews and routine maintenance of equipment. During performances, the birds fly to a lure, a rectangular-shaped leather pouch. The falconer whirls the lure in a circle on a 30-foot cord; the bird quickly learns to strike it in mid-air, carry it to the ground and dine on the food. As the bird stoops toward the lure in free flight, the lure is jerked aside, causing the falcon to fly up, circle and make another pass. This procedure is repeated several times before the bird is allowed to strike the lure in mid-air. The falcon performs this task knowing that as soon as it catches the lure, it earns its meal for the day. A small battery-powered transmitter and a bell are attached to each leg so that, should the bird not come to the lure as it had been trained, the cadet falconers will be able to follow and safely recover the falcon.

Air Force Song History of the Air Force Song In 1938, Liberty magazine sponsored a contest for a spirited, enduring musical composition to become the official Army Air Corps song. Of 757 scores submitted, Robert Crawford’s was selected by a committee of Air Force wives. The song was officially introduced at the Cleveland Air Races on September 2, 1939. Fittingly, Crawford sang it in its first public performance. The first page of the score, which Crawford submitted to the selection committee in July 1939, was carried to the surface of the moon on July 30, 1971, aboard the Apollo 15 "Falcon" lunar module by Colonel David R. Scott and Lieutenant Colonel James B. Irwin. Interestingly, at the moment the "Falcon" blasted off the surface of the moon with Scott and Irwin on board, a rendition of the "Air Force Song" was broadcast to the world by Major Alfred M. Worden, who had a tape recorder aboard the "Endeavor" command module which was in orbit around the moon. Scott, Irwin and Worden comprised the first and only "All-Air Force" Apollo crew and arranged to take the page of sheet music with them as a tribute to Crawford and the United States Air Force.

Bridge Section: Toast to the Host “A Toast to the Host” is part of the original Air Force Song. Many times this is sung as a separate piece. This is the verse which commemorates those who have fallen in the name of our service and our great country. This is the reason for the difference in melody and the reverent, reflective mood. After every football game, the Drum and Bugle Corps plays “A Toast to the Host” as the football team gathers together on the field, joins hands and stands at attention.

millions of spectators. That doesn’t include jumping into Falcon Stadium before the start of every football game, weather permitting.

The U.S. Air Force Academy parachute team, the Wings of Blue, has been one of the outstanding parachute units in the country for more than two decades. Since 1967, cadets have dominated national intercollegiate parachuting championships, typically winning decisively over 40 other schools which field about 125 of the nation’s top college competitors. Additionally, they perform about 50 demonstrations each year for

The Wings of Blue, because of their diverse mission, are divided into a demonstration team and a competition team. Advising and supervising the team is a cadre of active duty and reserve Air Force commissioned and non-commissioned officers. The team jumps from a variety of aircraft. However, the team primarily uses its own DeHavilland UV-18B Twin Otters. Each cadet member must be a qualified jump-master and instructor in the Air Force Academy parachuting program. They must also maintain high academic and military standards to remain with the team. Members of the team average 600 jumps by the time they graduate. The primary mission of the parachute team is not competing or performing, it’s to train other cadets in free-fall parachuting. Each year, over 1,000 cadets complete five free-fall jumps in the basic free fall parachuting course and earn the coveted parachutist badge and rating. The Academy is the only school in the Air Force authorized to grant these awards and is the only school in the U.S. authorized to allow students to perform unassisted free-fall delays on their first jump, without any prior static line training.

The basic free-fall program is the premier character development program at the Academy and is available to all cadets. It is designed to develop courage, confidence and discipline in each student and provide leadership experiences for the cadet instructors who teach the course. It is a rigorous training schedule with heavy emphasis on safety. Before cadets make their first jump, they are drilled repeatedly in ground school on proper parachuting procedures. The repetition is intended to have the jumper respond automatically and correctly should something unexpected occur during the jump. Cadets who successfully complete the basic free fall course are then eligible to take the advanced training necessary to tryout for the Wings of Blue. Those who want advanced training must compete for admission. Selection is based upon an individual’s maturity, abilities, academic and military standing. From its uncertain beginnings, when it was reserved for stuntmen, rugged paratroopers and desperate pilots, parachuting has evolved into an exacting science and demanding sport -- a sport dominated at the college level by the Air Force Academy.

Flight of Sound The complete experience in sight and sound is presented at every home Falcon football game by the “Flight of Sound,” the U.S. Air Force Academy Cadet Drum and Bugle Corps. Since 1948, the Air Force Drum and Bugle Corps has entertained audiences across the nation and abroad with their thrilling performances. The Corps, originally assigned to Bolling Air Force Base, Washington, D.C., was transferred to the Air Force Academy in 1963 and turned over to the Cadet Wing in 1972. Since then, the corps has won 16 of the 24 Interservice Academy Drum and Bugle Corps competitions and are the four-time defending champions. The competition is held annually during the Air Force vs. Navy football weekend.

Thanksgiving Day Parades, The Tournament of Roses Parade, Mardi Gras Parades, The Festival of State in St. Petersburg, Fla., Walt Disney World’s International Music Festival and The Long’s Peak Scottish/Irish Festival.

Recognized as one of America’s premier musical and marching units, the Corps exemplifies the precision and musical blend of a well-directed band or orchestra and the showmanship of a Broadway production. Performing on the average of 150 times a year, they have become known as the Academy’s ambassadors of precision drill and musical pageantry. The Corps’ primary mission is to support the Cadet Wing activities, including military formations and Academy athletic contests both home and away. An extension of the mission continues in the community with concerts, field exhibitions, band festivals and various military ceremonies. The “D & B” Corps is comprised of 135 cadets and has represented the Air Force Academy at Presidential Inaugural Parades, Macy’s

Head Coach Troy Calhoun

Troy Calhoun Head Coach



Fifth Season



The purpose of the United States Air Force Academy is to develop young people of strong character who graduate and serve as outstanding leaders on active duty and beyond. It’s a purpose Troy Calhoun thoroughly respects and realizes is necessary for our country. While embracing the mission of the Academy, Calhoun has also found a way to accomplish what was once considered unthinkable: building a service academy program that plays very competitive football in one of college football’s best conferences. Air Force student-athletes must complete the nation’s most demanding academic curriculum while further embedding the heart and character that are crucial for serving America. Cadets at the Academy must work through courses that require finishing over 140 semester hours. Strong character traits, to include respect, teamwork, courage, spirit, discipline, honesty and toughness, are the bedrock of the leadership qualities Air Force football players utilize while serving as officers in the United States Air Force. Calhoun and his staff have parlayed the varied demands of their players into a cohesive team that has fared quite well both on and off the field in his four seasons as head coach. Calhoun’s players are extraordinarily successful finishing their academic and leadership responsibilities. The Air Force football team's NCAA APR is annually amongst the finest of the 120 schools that play at the FBS level of college football. From May 2008 through the present, Air Force is the only service academy and the only Mountain West Conference program to finish above the nation’s 90th percentile each of the last four years. The Air Force football Academic Progress Rates (APRs) for the four most recent years have been 976 in May 2008, 983 in May 2009, an astounding 988 in May 2010 and 978 in 2011. In addition to being the nation’s best in regards to the NCAA’s APR, over 98 percent of Air Force football team members who participated in a game in either their junior or senior seasons under Calhoun’s guidance graduated from the United States Air Force Academy. Calhoun is the only head football coach at the Air Force Academy to lead teams to four consecutive seasons that included at least eight wins and a bowl game. They have done this while playing very strong opponents. Calhoun’s 2009 Air Force squad was the only team in the last 50 years of service academy football to play at least four ranked teams and win a bowl game in the same season. In the 100-plus year history of service academy football, Calhoun is the first coach to lead teams to at least eight wins and a bowl game in each of his first four seasons. Calhoun has lifted the Falcon football program to unprecedented heights within the Mountain West Conference. Calhoun’s four teams are a combined 21-11 in the Mountain West Conference and 34-18 overall. Air Force had posted three straight losing seasons from 2004-2006 before his arrival. His 21 wins in the MWC are the most in school history in a four-year span. Calhoun’s conference winning percentage makes him the only Air Force coach in any MWC sport at the Academy to have coached at least four years and have an overall winning record in conference play. With Calhoun at the helm, the Falcons have played their best football in the second half of the season. Air Force is 16-8 under Calhoun during the last six games of the regular season, including a 5-1 mark in 2007 which is the second-best in school history. Prior to his arrival, Air Force was 12-24 during the final six regular season games from 20012006. The 2010 team finished 9-4 overall and third in the

Air Force Football

34-18 record at Air Force Mountain West with a 5-3 mark. The team also won Air Force’s record 17th Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy championship with wins over Army and Navy. The Falcons closed the season with a victory over Georgia Tech of the ACC, 14-7, in the Independence Bowl. Calhoun was named Coach of the Year by the Colorado Chapter of the National Football Foundation. The 2009 Air Force team finished 8-5 overall and concluded with a convincing 47-20 win over 25th-ranked Houston in the Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl. Air Force set 13 Academy bowl team records in the dominant victory. The team also set six school records during the 2009 season. Calhoun was named Coach of the Year by the Colorado Chapter of the National Football Foundation for his efforts. Calhoun’s 2007 and 2008 Air Force teams finished 9-4 and 8-5, respectively, and both earned bowl bids. The 2007 Air Force team placed second in the Mountain West Conference with a 6-2 mark in Calhoun’s first year and earned the program’s first bowl berth in five years. The 2007 Falcons were the only team in Air Force history to win road games at Notre Dame, Utah and Colorado State in the same season. The five-game turnaround from 2006, in which Air Force was 4-8, was the largest in the nation by a first-year head coach. The five-game turnaround was the best in school history since the 1958 team had a school-record turnaround of six games. Air Force’s nine wins tied Calhoun for the most wins ever at the Academy by a first-year head coach, matching the mark set by Coach Ben Martin in 1958. The six MWC wins set a new Academy standard and are two wins better than the previous mark for conference wins by a first-year head coach at the Academy. Air Force also posted just the third undefeated home record in school history. Calhoun was named the Mountain West Conference’s Coach of the Year for his efforts. In addition, he was named Coach of the Year in Region 5 by the American Football Coaches Association and was one of eight finalists for the Eddie Robinson National Coach of the Year Award. He was also one of seven finalists for the AFCA National Coach of the Year award. Calhoun brought to Air Force a wealth of experience at the collegiate and professional levels that was flooded with success at every stop prior to the Academy. Calhoun came to the Academy after serving as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for the Houston Texans in 2006. The Texans were one of only two NFL teams to triple their number of wins from the previous year. The 2006 Texans were the last team to defeat the Indianapolis Colts on their way to the Super Bowl championship. On offense, the Texans had the NFL's leading receiver (Pro Bowler Andre Johnson with 103 catches), the NFL's best quarterback completion percentage (68.4 percent) and their quarterback tied a NFL record against Buffalo with 22 straight completions.

Calhoun became a well-rounded NFL coach, working as a defensive assistant, special teams assistant and offensive assistant with the Denver Broncos from 2003-05. He began his NFL coaching career by serving on the defensive side of the ball in 2003. He helped coach the NFL's fourth best defense. The Broncos' defense ranked seventh against the run and sixth against the pass. Denver's defense yielded a mere 17.6 points per game as they made the playoffs for the first time since 2000. In 2004, Calhoun moved to become an assistant on offense and worked with the special teams. The offense ranked fifth in the NFL, averaging 395.8 yards per game. Calhoun worked closely with Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan in the 2005 season, serving as the assistant to the head coach. The Broncos won the AFC West title for the 10th time in their history and played for the AFC Championship game for the first time in seven seasons. Their 14-4 record was the best since Denver finished the 1998 season as winners of Super Bowl XXXIII. The offense finished fifth in the NFL averaging 360.4 yards per game. The defense was stout against the run, finishing second in the NFL with 85.2 yards per game. Denver finished with an undefeated record at home during the regular season for the fifth time in team history. During Calhoun's three years in Denver, the Broncos made the playoffs every season, averaging over 11 wins a year. Prior to the NFL, Calhoun was an offensive coordinator for six seasons on the collegiate level. He began his coaching career at Air Force, where he worked as a graduate assistant from 1989-90. He started at quarterback for the Academy in 1986 and was one of only two freshmen to letter for the 1985 team that finished fifth in the final polls with a 12-1 record that included wins over Notre Dame and Texas. Calhoun served his country from 1989-95 as an active duty officer in the Air Force. He was an assistant coach for the Falcons in 1993-94. He moved to Ohio University in the spring of 1995 where he served as the quarterbacks coach for two seasons. Calhoun was promoted to offensive coordinator in 1997. During his first season at the helm, the offense totaled 612 yards against Eastern Michigan, second-most in school history. The Bobcats defeated Maryland in 1997, marking the school's first win against a team from the ACC in school history. The '97 Bobcats' 8-3 record was the school’s best in 29 years. During his last season at Ohio in 2000, the Bobcats beat two bowl teams, Minnesota and Marshall, for the first time in school history. Calhoun's 2000 offense set a school record with 418.1 yards per game. Calhoun moved to Wake Forest in 2001. The Demon Deacons were one of only seven teams in the country to score more than 30 points in each of the final four games. During his second season, Wake led the ACC in total offense with 408.1 yards per game. His offense had a league-best 990 plays and was efficient with the ball, committing only 16 turnovers, fewest in the ACC. The 2001 season culminated with a 3817 bowl victory over Oregon to give Wake Forest its first back-to-back winning seasons since the ACC expanded from eight teams. Groomed on the basics of integrity and passion, Calhoun was raised in a home where both kids graduated from the Air Force Academy and were varsity letter winners on nationally-ranked teams. Calhoun’s younger sister, Callie, is a 1991 Academy graduate. She was a 10-time track and cross country All-American who won six NCAA national titles. Troy Calhoun graduated from the Academy in 1989 as a member of the superintendent's list by earning over a 3.0 grade point average along with a military performance average of better than 3.0. He and his wife, Amanda, live in Colorado Springs and have two children, Tyler (nine) and Amelia (seven). Troy and Amanda Calhoun have a strong respect and affinity for the members of our armed services and are very involved with numerous charitable and community endeavors.

Ron Burton Defensive Line/NFL Liaison



9th Season

Ron Burton is in his ninth season as defensive line coach at the Academy. During his first eight seasons, Burton has developed some of the school’s best defensive lineman. Last season, he led Rick Ricketts to an all-conference year and defensive most valuable player honors in the Independence Bowl. In 2009, Burton led senior Ben Garland to all-conference honors and a free agent signing with the Denver Broncos in the NFL. Prior to coming to the Academy, Burton was the defensive line coach at Grand Valley State and helped the school to the NCAA Division II national championship in 2002, the first in school history. GVSU was a perfect 14-0 in Burton's first season at the school. Prior to his stint at GVSU, Burton was the linebackers coach at Indiana for five seasons (1997-01) where he was responsible for the development of two Butkus Award nominees, Justin Smith and Jabar Robinson. Burton was a four-year letterman at the University of North Carolina (1982-86), where he made three bowl appearances and was named team captain and best defensive lineman as a senior. His eight sacks during the 1986 season presently tie him for seventh on UNC's single-season sack list. He graduated in 1987 with a degree in industrial relations. Moving on to the next level, Burton spent four seasons playing linebacker in the NFL with the Dallas Cowboys (1987-89), Phoenix Cardinals (1989) and the Los Angeles Raiders (1990). He started the last six games at middle linebacker for the Cowboys his rookie year in 1987. He also started 15 games in 1988 at outside linebacker for the Cowboys. While playing for Los Angeles, Burton was on the team that played in the 1990 AFC Championship Game. After spending two seasons as a graduate assistant for North Carolina, Burton took his first full-time assistant coaching position at Morehead State in 1994. He worked with the defensive backs for one season and then went to Eastern Michigan, where he served two seasons as the linebackers coach. Burton was an all-state, all-district and all-region selection as an outside linebacker at Highland Springs High School (Va.). He was also named the prep player of the year in 1982. A native of Highland Springs, Va., Burton and his wife, Andrea, have four children, Ronald, Ryan, Roya and Reid.

Clay Hendrix Assoc. Head Coach/Offensive Coord./Offensive Line



5th Season

Clay Hendrix is in his fifth season at the Academy as the offensive coordinator and offensive line coach and second as associate head coach. Hendrix made his presence in the program known early, as he has turned the offensive line into one of the team’s strengths each season and into one of the best units in the conference each year. Air Force won its 27th conference rushing title in 2010, while finishing second nationally in rushing with an average of 306.5 yards per game. Despite entering the season with five new starters, the team’s average was the best since winning its only national rushing title in 2002 with a 307.8 per-game average. The total is the 10th best ever in school history. The 2010 season marked the second time in his tenure (2008) that Air Force allowed the fewest quarterback sacks in the nation. Hendrix coached two all-conference honorees in 2010 in junior A.J. Wallerstein and senior Chase Darden, who were each second-team selections. Air Force’s offense has ranked as one of the top units in the conference the last three seasons. Air Force finished fourth in the conference in scoring (29.7) and total offense (371.8) last year. The Falcons finished second in the conference in scoring and total offense with averages of 29.9 points and 419.4 yards per game in 2007. The team was fourth in scoring at 26.7 points per game and averaged 348.8 yards per game with a first-year starter and a freshman at starting quarterback in 2008. Air Force was also third in the conference and 31st nationally in quarterback efficiency last season. Hendrix came to Air Force after completing 19 seasons at NCAA I-AA Furman as the offensive line coach, including the last five as assistant head coach. Since joining the staff in 1988, he played a central role in Furman's success as his offensive lines helped the Paladins post a 147-73-1 record, win six Southern Conference titles and claim the 1988 NCAA I-AA national crown. The success Furman enjoyed over his last seven years, including a combined 65-24 record and three league titles, was due in large measure to the work of Hendrix-directed fronts. A product of Commerce, Ga., he starred as an offensive guard as a prep, helping Commerce High School to a 13-1-1 record and the 1981 AA state championship. A 1986 Furman graduate, he was a three-year starter from 1982-85 when Furman rolled up a 39-10-1 record. He also played on three league title teams and four nationally-ranked squads, including the 1985 national runner-up team. Furman also recorded impressive wins over South Carolina (1982), Georgia Tech (1983), and N.C. State (1984 & '85) during his tenure. He was named all-state in 1985. Following graduation, he joined Dick Sheridan's coaching staff at North Carolina State as a graduate assistant before returning to Furman in 1988. He and his wife, the former LeeAnn Hedgpeth of Taylors, S.C., have two sons, Cal (14), and Mac (10).

Desmond "Des" Kitchings joins the Air Force coaching staff this season as the running backs coach and running game coordinator for the Falcons. Kitchings comes to the Academy from Vanderbilt, where he served as running backs coach from 2008-10 and offensive coordinator in 2010. Kitchings was also the program's running game coordinator and co-special teams coordinator while on the Commodores’ staff. He was a key player in the development of true freshman tailbacks Warren Norman and Zac Stacy, who ranked 1-2 on the team in rushing in 2009, with Norman producing one of the finest all-purpose campaigns ever by an SEC freshman. He ended the season as the SEC Freshman of the Year and a freshman All-American. Prior to his time at Vanderbilt, Kitchings coached at Furman from 2004-07 where he was the tight ends coach and special teams coordinator. He helped mentor Larry Hedden, Willis Sudderth and John Rust to all-conference recognition. During his tenure at Furman, the Paladins went 10-3 and captured a conference title in 2004, and advanced to the NCAA I-AA national semifinals in 2005. Kitchings was a standout receiver/return specialist at Furman. As a senior in 1999, Kitchings helped Furman win the first of three conference championships. He ranks among the school's all-time leaders in receptions and returns. As a specialist, he averaged a SoCon record 29.3 yards on 33 kickoff returns, four of which went for touchdowns - also a school record. A consensus all-Southern Conference selection as both a receiver and returner, Kitchings earned All-America honors as a return specialist in 1999 after leading the NCAA I-AA division in return average. Kitchings was selected by Kansas City in the 2000 NFL Draft, and spent four years on practice squads and rosters of NFL squads. Kitchings completed a health and exercise science degree at Furman in 2000. He also became the youngest inductee into the Furman Athletics Hall of Fame in 2009. A native of Wagener, S.C., Kitchings and his wife, Heather, have three children.

Matt McGettigan Strength/Conditioning



5th Season

Matt McGettigan is in his fifth season as the strength and conditioning coach for the Falcon football team. Widely considered one of the best in the country, McGettigan helped transform the Falcon program. Prior to his coming to the Academy, the Falcons had posted a 12-24 record over the second half of the season the past six seasons. In 2007, the Falcons won six of its final seven games. In addition to being in better physical shape, the Falcons saw fewer significant injuries. McGettigan played a key factor in the play of 2007 All-American Chad Hall, a 5-foot-8, 185-pound do-everything runner who averaged over 32 touches per game over the last seven weeks of the 2007 season. The work of McGettigan received the ultimate affirmation of excellence when he earned recognition as the 2001 National Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coach of the Year by the Professional Football Strength and Conditioning Coaches Society. The award underscored the respect McGettigan has from his peers. McGettigan joined the Iowa State staff in 1996 with head coach Dan McCarney. He spent 11 years with the Cyclones before coming to Air Force in the summer of 2007. Prior to his stint in Ames, he was an assistant strength and conditioning coach at Notre Dame from 1991-95. Before his work with the Fighting Irish, McGettigan served as the strength and conditioning coordinator for Wisconsin-Platteville from 1987-90. McGettigan completed his undergraduate work in physical education at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa, in 1987, where he was a threeyear starter on the football team. He is a member of the National Strength and Conditioning Association. In January 1989, McGettigan received his certification as strength and conditioning specialist. He earned his master's degree in 1989 from Wisconsin-Platteville. A native of Darlington, Wis., McGettigan is married to the former Darla Hook of Charles City, Iowa. They have two children, Mariah and Colin.

Ben Miller Tight Ends/Special Teams Coordinator



5th Season

Ben Miller is in his fifth season as tight ends coach at the Academy and fourth year coaching the specialists (punters, kickers and snappers). This season is his first as the special teams coordinator. Miller’s first four years saw the development of Travis Dekker as one of the best tight ends in school history and one of the best in the Mountain West Conference. Dekker caught 25 passes for 382 yards and two scores, while averaging 15.3 yards per catch, in 2007. His 25 catches are the most by an Air Force tight end since Trent Van Hulzen in 1989. He would later sign a contract with the Green Bay Packers. In addition, Chaz Demerath developed into one of the team’s top receiving threats last season in his first year as a starter. Demerath caught 17 passes for 241 yards to finish third on the team in receiving. Miller’s work with the kickers has also been impressive. Senior Ryan Harrison kicked a school-record 24 field goals in 2008, while becoming a semifinalist for the Lou Groza National Placekicker of the Year award. Harrison also set a record for field goals in consecutive seasons with 43 in 2007-08. In 2009, kicker Erik Soderberg burst on the scene in his first season. He kicked 22 field goals which is the second most in school history. He also scored 104 points. Additionally, punter Brandon Geyer was among the national leaders with a 43.0 punting average. A 2002 Academy graduate, Miller spent the 2006 season as the offensive graduate assistant at the University of Illinois before returning to the Academy. Miller was an all-conference offensive lineman for the Falcons, starting at left tackle as a junior and senior. After completing his collegiate career, Miller signed a contract with the Cleveland Browns, where he was used as a fullback/tight end/long snapper. In the fall of 2005, he joined the practice squad for the Philadelphia Eagles. Miller served as a graduate assistant coach at the Academy from 2002-03. He also spent one year in the ManTech Division at Wright Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, before transitioning to the Air Force Reserve in May of 2004. During the NFL offseason, he worked as a public affairs officer doing recruiting and public relations activities for the Air Force.

Blane Morgan is in his 10th season overall and fifth as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at the Academy. Prior to his current position, Morgan was wide receivers coach for two years and a junior varsity assistant before that. Morgan helped develop 2008 graduate Shaun Carney into one of the top quarterbacks in school history. Carney finished his brilliant four-year run as the Air Force career leader in passing touchdowns, yards and total offense. Morgan has also brought along current quarterback Tim Jefferson, who exploded on the scene in 2008 to earn MWC freshman of the year honors, the first for a player in school history. Jefferson moved into the starting position and won his first five starts, finished 5-3 overall as a starter and became the first freshman starting quarterback ever in a bowl game in school history. Jefferson has continued his fine play and is the first quarterback in school history to lead his team to three bowl games. In addition, Air Force’s offense has ranked as one of the top units in the conference the last four seasons. Air Force finished fourth in the conference in scoring (30.8) and third in total offense (425.8) last year. The Falcons finished second in the conference in scoring and total offense with averages of 29.9 points and 419.4 yards per game in 2007. The team was fourth in scoring at 26.7 points per game and averaged 348.8 yards per game with a first-year starter and a freshman at starting quarterback in 2008. Morgan is a 1999 graduate of the Academy, where he became the winningest starting quarterback in school history. Morgan led the Falcons to a 121 season in 1998 as a senior, while earning Western Athletic Conference offensive player of the year honors. Morgan also led the Falcons to a 10-3 mark as a junior and finished his career with a 20-3 overall record as a starter. He is only the second quarterback in school history to win his first seven starts. Morgan's accomplishments as a player at the Academy put him in rare company. He was undefeated as a starter against Air Force's sister academies, going 3-0. He remains the only starting QB in school history to lead the Falcons to an outright conference title. He also posted a 1-1 mark in bowl games, helping the Falcons to the 1998 Oahu Bowl win over Washington. Morgan came to the Academy from Laughlin AFB, Texas, where he was stationed from July 2000 to February 2003. Prior to that, Morgan was a graduate assistant with the football team during the 1999 season. Originally from Dallas, Texas, Morgan was a three-year football letterwinner at Trinity Christian Academy in Addison, Texas, where he played for his father, Barry. He was a two-time all-state selection at safety and was team captain his senior year. Football has been a family affair for the Morgans, as Blane's older brother, Beau, also played football at Trinity Christian Academy and Air Force. Blane followed Beau as the starting quarterback at both schools. Morgan and his wife, Mandy, live in Colorado Springs.

2011 Season Outlook Air Force has had an outstanding four-year run with head coach Troy Calhoun at the helm. The Falcons have won at least eight games and played in a post-season bowl game four straight years for the first time in school history.

(guard), Jason Kons (tackle) and Michael Hester (center). The group helped the Falcons win their 13th consecutive conference rushing title and finish second nationally with a 306.5 per-game average. Guards Jordan Eason and Jeff Benson, along with tackle Kevin Whitt, could also earn starting spots.

after missing all of last season and half of 2009 with multiple injuries. As a sophomore in 2008, Lamendola recorded just the sixth 100-tackle season by a sophomore in school history with 118 stops to lead the team and rank third in the conference. Junior Austin Niklas will also battle for playing time.

The fullback position will continue to be battled for in the fall. Juniors Wes Cobb and Mike DeWitt ended spring drills atop the depth chart and will be the favorites to win the job in the fall. Cobb rushed for just 13 yards on five carries after moving to the position midway through the season. DeWitt returns after missing last year due to injury.

Senior Patrick Hennessey returns as a starter at outside linebacker. Hennessey had 60 total tackles and tied for the team lead in tackles for loss with 10. Junior Alex Means and sophomore Jamil Cooks will likely battle it out for the other starting position. Means had 22 tackles last season while Cooks had 13, playing mostly on special teams.

The 2011 Falcons could also be an interesting team to follow. The chief challenges for Air Force to sustain this level of play will include: replacing nearly 80 games started between outside linebacker Andre Morris, Jr., and All-American defensive back and return specialist Reggie Rembert; filling the void for fullback Jared Tew, who rushed for 1,905 career yards; and finding three starters from amongst their tight end and offensive line spots which paved the way for the nation’s No. 2 rushing attack in 2010.

Seniors Jonathan Warzeka and Zack Kauth will lead the receiving corps in 2011. Warzeka led the team in receiving in 2010 with 18 catches for 406 yards and three touchdowns. Kauth had 16 catches for 274 yards and a team-best four receiving touchdowns. Warzeka has also boosted the Falcons’ kickoff return game. He earned mid-season All-American honors and led the conference in kickoff returns with a 28.7 average. He ranked 11th nationally in kickoff returns and his career average of 27.9 is tops in school history.

Air Force plays a schedule that includes hosting three bowl winners (TCU, San Diego State and service academy rival Army) and a tough October. The Falcons play five times in October with road games at Navy, Notre Dame, Boise State and New Mexico.

Juniors Brandon Hirneise and Mikel Hunter will also see prominent playing time at receiver. Hunter had five catches for 106 yards and rushed for 168 yards on 12 carries. The tight end position could be a shared role between seniors Josh Freeman and Daniel Pickett and junior Austin Briehl. Freeman was tops among the trio with four catches for 122 yards last season.

The defensive line will certainly miss the energized contributions of the graduated Rick Ricketts, a second-team all-conference performer and the defensive most valuable player in the Independence Bowl, and Bradley Connor. Ricketts recorded 71 total tackles and tied for the team lead in tackles for loss with 10 while leading the team in sacks with 2.5. Senior nose guard Ryan Gardner, along with defensive ends Zach Payne, Harry Kehs and Ben Kopacka give Air Force a rather diminutive, but capable group. Gardner recorded 29 tackles last year, while Payne had 55 total tackles and 6.5 tackles for loss. Kopacka missed all of last season due to injury, but returned in the spring.

The last two seasons Air Force finished with very notable bowl victories: 2009 in the Armed Forces Bowl with a 47-20 victory over No. 25 Houston, and in the 2010 Independence Bowl with a 14-7 victory over Georgia Tech. The 2010 Air Force team captured its record 17th Commander-inChief’s trophy championship with victories over service academy rivals Army and Navy.

Offensively, Air Force graduated a considerable group of playmakers from their 2010 squad such as Tew, receivers Kyle Halderman and Kevin Fogler, backup fullback Nathan Walker and tight end Chaz Demerath. They will also miss the offensive line play of Chase Darden, Alex Arndt and Tyler Schonsheck. Quarterbacks Tim Jefferson and Connor Dietz have started a combined 34 games the past three years. Jefferson has been a steady hand for the Falcons. Although Air Force has been a team that relies on their NFL-style zone running game, a key reason it was 9-4 in 2010 was Jefferson leading a team that finished 22nd nationally in passing efficiency. Jefferson hit 82-159 for 1,459 yards and 10 touchdowns. He’s also the only quarterback in school history to lead his team to three straight bowl games. The running game will be anchored by senior Asher Clark, who became the 13th player in school history to rush for 1,000 yards with 1,031 in 2010. Clark was a second-team all-conference selection and finished third in the league in rushing with a 79.3 per-game average. Clark has rushed for 2,484 career yards which ranks sixth in school history. The backup roles will be handled by juniors Darius Jones and Cody Getz.

Defensively, Air Force returns eight starters from a defense that ranked among the MWC’s top four in scoring (third, 21.1), passing (second, 147.8) and total defense (fourth, 349.3). Air Force will use both 3-4 and 4-3 configurations along with a variety of zone and man coverages. The defense features a solid group of inside linebackers with seniors Brady Amack, Jordan Waiwaiole and Ken Lamendola. Waiwaiole led the Falcons with 96 tackles last season while Amack was third on the team with 82 stops. The pair tied for the team lead with three double-figure tackle games. Lamendola returns

The secondary returns three starters in senior safety Jon Davis and cornerback Anthony Wright, Jr., along with sophomore safety Anthony Wooding, Jr. Davis was second on the team in tackles with 93 and tied for the team lead in interceptions with three. Wright, Jr., is among the conference and school leaders in career interceptions with 10 and had 50 tackles and two interceptions in 2010. Junior Brian Lindsay, who started the first six games last season before an injury sidelined him, returns and will be a significant contributor and figures to start at nickel back. Seniors Josh Hall and P.J. Adeji-Paul, along with sophomore Chris Miller, will all battle for the other starting cornerback position. All three saw significant action in 2010. Air Force has ranked among the national leaders in net punting the last two years, but must replace last year’s starter, Keil Bartholomew. Sophomore David Baska seems to have the lead heading into fall drills. The team doesn’t have a punter that has attempted a punt in a varsity game on its roster. The kicking game will be battled for between senior Erik Soderberg, junior Parker Herrington and sophomore Zach Hoffman. Soderberg was a second-team all-conference selection in 2009 and hit five of 10 field goals last season. The punt return duties will be shared between seniors Wright and Davis while junior Cody Getz figures to help out Warzeka in the kickoff return game.

The offensive line will be led by returning starters A.J. Wallerstein

The Mountain West From its inception in 1999, the Mountain West has been committed to excellence in intercollegiate athletics, while promoting the academic missions of its member institutions. Progressive in its approach, the MW continues to cultivate opportunities for student-athletes to compete at the highest level, while fostering academic achievement and sportsmanship. Now in its 13th year, the MW has been assertive in its involvement with the NCAA governance structure and has taken a leadership role in the overall administration of intercollegiate athletics. The Mountain West has marked several achievements over its first 12 years of existence, most notably becoming the first to establish a sports television network dedicated solely to an intercollegiate athletic conference (The Mtn.). The Mountain West also was the first to experiment with the coaches’ challenge in the college football instant replay system, and was the first non-automatic-qualifying BCS conference to participate in four BCS bowl games, winning three. Additionally, the Mountain West was the first conference to have a member institution with No. 1 overall picks in both the NFL and NBA drafts in the same year (Utah’s Alex Smith and Andrew Bogut, respectively in 2005). With San Diego State’s Stephen Strasburg claiming the No. 1 pick in the 2009 MLB Draft, the Mountain West is one of two conferences to have the No. 1 selection in each of the NFL, NBA and MLB drafts since the MW was founded in 1999. In 2011-12, the Mountain West will be among the first conferences to implement a league-wide state-of-the art basketball instant replay system. The Mountain West is noted for its geographic diversity. Some of the most beautiful terrain and landscapes in the nation can be found within Mountain West boundaries, including the majestic Rocky Mountain range, which borders three MW institutions (Air Force, newest member Boise State and Colorado State). The high plains of Wyoming (elevation 7,220 feet – the highest Division I campus in the nation) contrast with the desert city of Las Vegas (the fastest growing metropolitan area in the West) and the Pacific Ocean locale of San Diego State. The southwestern flavor of New Mexico complements the western heritage and culture of Fort Worth, Texas, home of TCU.

HISTORY The Mountain West was conceived on May 26, 1998, when the presidents of eight institutions —

Air Force Football

Air Force, BYU, Colorado State, New Mexico, San Diego State, UNLV, Utah and Wyoming — decided to form a new NCAA Division I-A intercollegiate athletic conference. The split from a former 16team conference re-established continuity and stability among the membership within the new league and signaled the continuation of its tradition-rich, longstanding athletic rivalries. Three of the MW’s eight original members have been conference rivals since the 1960s (New Mexico, Wyoming and Colorado State), while San Diego State (1978) and Air Force (1980) were longtime members as well. UNLV and TCU entered the fold in 1996 and the Rebels continued as one of the original eight institutions that formed the MW in 1999. TCU re-joined the group with its first year of competition in the Mountain West in 2005-06. Effective July 1, 2011, Boise State University became the newest member. California State University, Fresno and the University of Nevada, Reno will join the Mountain West effective July 1, 2012. Also on July 1, 2012, the University of Hawai‘i will become a football-only member of the Conference.

When the Mountain West officially began operations on July 1, 1999, the new league had in place a seven-year contract with ESPN, giving the broadcaster exclusive national television rights to MW football and men’s basketball, and threeyear agreements to send the league’s football champion to the Liberty Bowl and a second team to the Las Vegas Bowl. Commissioner Craig Thompson also arranged a third bowl tie-in each of the first three seasons (1999 Motor City, 2000 Silicon Valley, 2001 New Orleans) before securing a four-year deal with the Emerald Bowl in San Francisco in 2002. Entering the 2011 season, the MW has four contracted bowl affiliations – the MAACO Bowl Las Vegas, San Diego Country Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl, AdvoCare V100 Independence Bowl and Gildan New Mexico Bowl. An innovator in the postseason bowl structure, the MW engineered many “firsts,” as league teams have participated in five inaugural bowl games (2000 Silicon Valley, 2001 New Orleans, 2002 San Francisco (Emerald), 2005 Poinsettia, 2006 New Mexico), as well as placing the first non-automatic-qualifying BCS team into a BCS bowl game with Utah’s appearance in the 2005 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl.

2010-11 IN REVIEW From the gridiron to the diamond, Mountain West teams enjoyed an outstanding year in 2010-11. For the third consecutive year, the MW sent a record five football teams to bowl games, posting the best win percentage among the 11 FBS conferences for the fourth time in seven years. The Mountain West finished with a 4-1 (.800) mark in postseason play and claimed the 2010-11 Bowl Challenge Cup, becoming the only conference to win the trophy four times since the award’s inception in 2002-03. Two MW teams were ranked in the final BCS Standings and USA Today/ESPN Coaches polls for the third straight year. TCU’s No. 3 BCS ranking marked the highest finish by a non-automatic-qualifying team in the final BCS Standings, surpassing the Horned Frogs’ No. 4 ranking in 2009. The Horned Frogs’ automatic bid to the Rose Bowl marked the MW’s fourth BCS bowl game since 2004. The MW set a record for attendance with 1.86 million fans coming to football games in the 2010 season.

The Mountain West Three men’s basketball teams represented the Mountain West in the 2011 NCAA Tournament, marking the 11th time in the last 12 years the Conference has sent multiple teams to the Big Dance. In women’s basketball, the league had four teams participate in postseason action, as BYU, TCU and Wyoming advanced to the Women’s National Invitation Tournament. The league secured at least one at-large bid to the NCAA women’s volleyball tournament for the 12th consecutive year, as New Mexico joined MW regularseason champion and automatic bid representative Colorado State in the postseason. Three MW teams placed in the top 20 at the NCAA Cross Country Championships. The New Mexico women’s squad made their best team showing in program history with a fifth-place finish. It was the best finish by a MW women’s team since 2003. Three MW student-athletes won national titles at the 2011 NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships, including BYU's Miles Batty, who claimed the men’s crown in the mile event, the third straight year a MW student-athlete has won the title. BYU’s Leif Arrhenius won the men’s shot put, while women’s teammate Lacey Bleazard earned first-place honors in the 800-meter run. Student-athletes from BYU, TCU, UNLV and Wyoming represented the Mountain West in the NCAA Men’s Swimming and Diving Championships, while BYU, San Diego State, Utah and Wyoming provided participants on the women’s side in NCAA postseason action. Air Force senior Eric Robinson became the 35th MW student-athlete to earn an NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship. Robinson was the Falcons team captain in 2010-11. For the 12th consecutive season, the Mountain West sent at least four men’s golf teams to the NCAA Tournament. For the second consecutive year, five MW women’s golf teams received NCAA regional bids, marking the eighth consecutive year the Mountain West has sent at least three teams to the postseason. Multiple MW women’s tennis teams appeared in the NCAA Tournament for the 10th consecutive year, with UNLV and Utah qualifying in 2011. San Diego State joined regular-season champion BYU in the NCAA Softball Championship for a second year in a row, marking the eighth time in 12 years the Mountain West has had multiple teams selected for the postseason. Twenty-seven MW student-athletes earned All-America honors at the 2011 NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships. New Mexico, the No. 6 seed, made a surprising run through the 2011 Mountain West Baseball Tournament to earn the league’s automatic bid and the Lobos’ second consecutive trip to the NCAA Tournament. The Lobos were joined in the national postseason by MW regular-season champion TCU, who was ranked in the Top10 in the major college baseball polls all season. 2011 marked the third straight year the Mountain West sent multiple teams to the NCAA Baseball Championship.

EXPOSURE The Mountain West continues to receive unprecedented national television exposure through a combination of telecasts on The Mtn., CBS Sports Network and VERSUS. In 2010-11, 47 football, 88 men’s basketball and 27 women’s basketball Conferencecontrolled contests were broadcast nationally. On August 26, 2004, CBS Sports Network (formerly CSTV and

Air Force Football

CBS C) and the Mountain West announced a visionary partnership that revolutionized the college sports landscape. The landmark agreement was the first NCAA Division I football and men’s basketball conference-wide deal for CSTV and provided the network exclusive rights to all Conference events, including cable and satellite television coverage, national over-the-air and satellite radio, video-on-demand and online broadcast rights. In the summer of 2006, the centerpiece of this historic relationship was realized with the launch of The Mtn. – MountainWest Sports Network, the first sports network dedicated to serving a single collegiate athletic conference. Nearly 32,000 hours of MW programming have aired on The Mtn. since the network’s launch on Sept. 1, 2006, and nearly 300 MW events are shown live annually through a combination of telecasts on The Mtn., CBS Sports Network and VERSUS. CBS Sports Network is currently in 43 million homes, and available in 95 million nationwide. VERSUS is in 75 million households across the U.S.

ACADEMIC CONSORTIUM From the outset, the MW’s member institutions were committed to creating academic relationships, as well as athletic competition. To that end, the chief academic officers of each institution have explored academic exchange programs, library crossovers and shared research. In addition, the faculty athletics representatives routinely provide academic assistance and test-taking services for student-athletes visiting from fellow member institutions for competition.

ACHIEVEMENT The MW has produced 708 All-America selections among its 19 sponsored sports in the last 12 years, including a league-record 80 All-America honorees in 2010-11. A total of 118 MW student-athletes have also earned Academic All-America accolades in that span. The MW has sent at least 30 teams to NCAA postseason events each of the past 12 years. Mountain West teams have captured three NCAA team championships, with BYU claiming three national titles in women’s cross country. Additionally, the MW has produced 27 NCAA individual national champions in the sports of men’s golf, men’s cross country, and men’s and women’s indoor track & field and outdoor track & field. Mountain West members have participated in 46 bowl games under the league umbrella, including four appearances in BCS games. The MW has earned 55 postseason bids in men’s basketball, including 29 NCAA Tournament appearances and two NIT Final Four berths. MW women’s basketball has tallied 55 postseason slots, including 30 NCAA bids, five Sweet 16 appearances and one Elite Eight berth since 2000. Wyoming won the MW’s first WNIT championship in 2007 with a win over Wisconsin. In women’s volleyball, the MW has had 33 NCAA bids with eight Sweet 16 berths and one Elite Eight appearance. Women’s soccer has earned 25 NCAA bids since 1999, with BYU advancing to the Sweet 16 in 2000 and the Elite Eight in 2003. MW men’s golf has had at least four representatives in each of the last 12 NCAA Golf Regionals, while women’s tennis has had at least two teams participate in NCAA Regionals 10 of the last 11 years.

College Football Hall of Fame Three former Falcons have reached the pinnacle of their sport by getting inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. Brock Strom, a 1959 Academy graduate, was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1985. Strom was a consensus All-American in 1958 and the captain of Air Force’s only undefeated team in school history. He played an instrumental role in the 1958 team that finished 9-0-2 and played in the Cotton Bowl. Chad Hennings, a 1988 Academy graduate, was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2006. A unanimous first-team All-America selection in 1987, Hennings received the Outland Trophy as the nation’s top interior lineman. A two-time first-team all-conference selection, he is a member of the Western Athletic Conference all-time team and was named WAC defensive player of the decade for the 1980s. He is a twotime first-team Academic All-American and is also a member of the Academic All-America Hall of Fame. Although he was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in the 1988 NFL Draft, Hennings fulfilled a four-year military commitment, serving during the first Gulf War. In 1992, he rejoined the Cowboys and embarked on a nine-year NFL career that brought him three Super Bowl titles. Long-time coach Fisher DeBerry was inducted in 2011, the first year he was eligible to be on the ballot. DeBerry served as head coach at Air Force for a brilliant 23-year career which concluded with his retirement on Dec. 15, 2006. He led 17 of his 23 teams to winning records and 12 captured a bowl bid, posting a 6-6 record. His career record of 169-109-1 is the best in school history in terms of games won and winning percentage. He coached the Falcons to three conference championships. The team won a share of the Western Athletic Conference championship in 1985, his second season, and again in 1995. In 1998, DeBerry guided the team to its first outright title with the WAC Mountain Division championship and a win over Brigham Young in the title game in Las Vegas. He was named WAC Coach of the Year for the third time in his career. The 1998 team's 12-1 record completed the first back-to-back 10-win seasons in school history following a 10-3 campaign the previous year. The 1998 squad finished the season ranked 10th nationally. His Falcons dominated the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy series with archrivals Army and Navy. Air Force won the trophy 14 times and shared it once in DeBerry's tenure. He compiled a remarkable 35-11 record against the Black Knights and Midshipmen and is the winningest coach in service academy history. Former Air Force coach, L.T. “Buck” Shaw was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1972. Shaw coached the Falcons in 1956 and 1957. Shaw is most known for his seven stellar seasons at Santa Clara, but also coached at North Carolina State, Nevada and California, as well as two stops in the NFL with San Francisco and Philadelphia.

Media Policies Media policies at the Air Force Academy are designed to provide simple access to game playing participants and coaches of the Air Force football program. Our policies begin by ensuring the football program supports the educational and leadership development of the cadets at the Air Force Academy while providing easy coverage for media members.

PRACTICES Air Force Football Practices - The United States Air Force Academy prefers open football practices. Open practices provide the opportunity to easily gather background information and observe the players who are a part of the Air Force Academy football team. Open practice guidelines include refraining from blogging or reporting of injuries or tactics. Video/Photography - Video and photography during practices will be done by media members who are first cleared through the Air Force Academy Media Relations staff. Video and photos will be taken August 1st - August 24th during practice periods 2-4 on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. Starting August 29th video and photographers cleared through the Air Force Academy Media Relations staff may shoot film during practice periods 2-4 on Mondays and Tuesdays.

INTERVIEWS Player/Assistants Availability - Player availability considers each cadet’s academic and military/leadership obligations in addition to any needed physical rehabilitation/treatment. Because treatment time may be necessary, players must physically complete the previous practice or game. From August 1st through August 27th Air Force upperclassmen (sophomores, juniors and seniors) will be accessible on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays after practices. Beginning August 29th, Air Force upperclassmen will be accessible on Mondays and Tuesdays from 1:15-1:45 PM and following games. Freshmen who played in the most recent game will be available on Tuesdays from 1:15 to 1:45 PM and following games. During USAFA mid-semester lessons M17 (September 20th) through USAFA T21 (October 4th) and during December final exams Air Force will select three cadets who will only be available from 1:15-1:45 on Mondays and Tuesdays. Air Force players are available for live radio shows following each game.

CREDENTIALS General: All credentials must be requested from athletic communications no later than noon (MST) the day before the game. No credentials will be issued the day of the game - NO EXCEPTIONS. Visiting team media are urged to request credentials through the team they cover and credentials will be distributed in advance of the game. All other credentials will be left at Will Call the day of the game. Non-rights holding radio stations will be limited to one credential. Internet Sites: Only accredited news agency internet sites will be granted game credentials or access to Air Force student-athletes and coaches. All inquiries must be made through athletic communications. Accreditation will be determined on a case-by-case basis, but all sites must have a recognized news affiliation. Photo Credentials: Freelance photography credentials will not be issued unless the photographer has a request on company letterhead from an accredited media outlet. No credentials will be issued to "assistants" - NO EXCEPTIONS. Single-Game Credentials: Single-game credentials will not be issued to any local media outlet that has not regularly covered Air Force or the competing team, unless space allows. Season Credentials: Media outlets must attend media day and regularly cover Air Force (attend weekly media teleconferences and/or practices) to be eligible for a season credential. If media outlets request credentials for staff members (columnists, anchors, etc.) that are not always able to attend and that staff member wishes to attend a particular game, they must call the week of the game to inform the athletic communications staff for seating purposes. A season credential doesn’t always reserve media members a seat in the press box. Parking: Media parking passes are issued for football and men’s basketball only and are on a space-available basis. Media with season credentials and visiting media will have priority in this case. Scouting Credentials: Professional scouting credentials are issued and seats provided as space allows. These requests must be made in advance on company letterhead.

Coach Availability - Assistant Coaches will be available to discuss only their position players. Assistants can be reached from August 1st through August 26th on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Fridays from 1:15 – 1:45. Starting August 30th, assistants can be reached on Tuesdays from 1:15-1:45. Coach Troy Calhoun is available after practices from August 2nd through August 27th on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. From August 29th through the completion of the regular season Coach Calhoun is accessible in a number of ways. They include: Sundays at 6 pm during the season via conference call, Monday after practice, Tuesday mornings on the MWC teleconference, Tuesday afternoon from 12:30-1:00 at the Air Force Academy media room, and following games.
