Air Force scrimmage features new playmaker

It was just three months ago that Air Force finished last season, but today they finished spring by making history.

After 15 practices, they wrapped up spring football with it's first and only scrimmage at District 20 stadium.

The first off base scrimmage in the Calhoun era. Kale Pearson, the starting quarterback coming into last season, is still recovering from the knee injury he suffered in the first game of 2013.

Blue Battled silver, seniors picked the teams so Karson Roberts took the first snaps of the game under center. He and Nate Romine alternated. The standout performer was freshman running back Jacobi Owens, but the whole team was just ready to play again after last year's finish.

"Extremely motivated," said Owens. "Seniors were leading, taking charge, and everybody is just working their butts off, and we just want to be better, that's it."

"We had a lot of fire coming out of this off-season for sure," said Romine. "Just the last season's 2-and-10 record kind of motivated us, and we just all, have that strong desire, we're not going to go 2-and-10 again, we're going to have a winning record."

Now the Falcons will have to wait over 5 months until their first game, August 31st against Nickel State.
