When Air Force takes the field in 2014 to try to redeem themselves after last year's 2-10 finish, they should be doing it with their original starting quarterback.
Kale Pearson is ahead of rehab schedule after tearing his ACL in the first game of 2013. The Falcons went through three different quarterbacks after Pearson went down, but yesterday, coach Calhoun said Pearson should be ready to go.
"He really made remarkable progress in rehabilitation, what's been required, and he's even gone beyond that," said Clahoun. "And, he's antsy to get going. You know, I think, probably more than anything else it's just being able to plant and get tackled a couple times, or just being able to handle contact."
Air Force kicks off their season August 30th against Nicholls State.
