The Air Force football team returned to the field today for spring practice at the Holaday Athletic Center.
After an 11-2 season and a No. 22 ranking, the Falcons will head into 2020 with serious expectations, a welcome change from recent seasons.
Head Coach Troy Calhoun will have to replace 31 seniors but also returns a solid core including quarterback DJ Hammond III, running back Kaden Remsberg, and defensive standouts Jordan Jackson, Demonte Meeks and Tre Bugg III.
Having played in the Cheez-It Bowl in December, it hasn't been long since AFA suited up. While no two teams are the same, the Falcons have a solid blueprint to work off of heading into a new year.
"It's kind of weird that we just played a game," Hammond said. "That's the first time I've been to a bowl game, it's just time to get back to work. My approach is the same, Saturdays take care of themselves, so same approach."
