Air Force’s aerial plans go beyond football field
Question of the Day
“He just laughed it off, saying, ‘Yeah, yeah,’” Rembert said.
Air Force coach Troy Calhoun has no quarrels with the limited summer workouts, understanding it’s simply part of the process of molding cadets into officers.
And it doesn’t appear to be hampering the Falcons on the field, the team making three straight bowl appearances under Calhoun.
“As a football coach, sure, I’d like to have them there every day,” Calhoun said. “But one of the responsibilities you have if you’re a college football coach is to get your guys ready for whatever they’re going to do when they’re done with football.”
Not as glamorous as fighter jets, but it’s more his speed.
“I’ve never been a roller-coaster type of guy. So, I figured I wouldn’t like fighter jets, because people compare them to roller coasters,” said Jefferson, who threw for 848 yards last season and rushed for another 254.
Not only did Tew spend his summer getting in some flying time, he also worked the assault course during basic training. His role? To play the “mean guy” as cadets crawled under barbed wire and hopped over walls at his prompting.
It’s quite a step out of character for the ever-affable Tew, who led the team in rushing last year with 970 yards.
“We’re in charge of making sure they’re pushing themselves, yelling at them to keep going,” said Tew, who’s from Park City, Utah.
It never hurt to look.
“Everyone wasn’t there each period, but we got some work in,” Tew said. “We know how important it is, to get out there and work out as a team _ especially since every other team in the nation is doing just that.”
