Air Force’s offense tough tackle for Notre Dame
“I grew up in the Midwest. I feel that anybody in America that wants to play football, wants to play for Notre Dame. If they don’t want to play for Notre Dame, they want to beat Notre Dame,” Kons said. “It was always my dream to play for a team like Notre Dame. If you don’t bleed gold, you want to beat gold.”
Playing football at a service academy can be a demanding proposition. Falcons’ tackle A.J. Wallerstein, for example, gets his day started at 6 a.m. By the time of his pre-practice meeting at 2 p.m., he’s already been in morning formation and attended five classes, two in physics and another in differential equations. Total time for breakfast and lunch is 45 minutes.
“We know how hard it is with our weekly schedule, and then we try to think about what those guys go through; I can’t even imagine how much more they have on their plate than we do,” Notre Dame safety and captain Harrison Smith said.
