COLORADO SPRINGS — Air Force senior offensive lineman Nolan Laufenberg and Parker Ferguson were named First Team All-Mountain West Tuesday afternoon.

Laufenberg and Ferguson were each on the watch list for the 2020 Outland Trophy, recognizing 85 standout interior linemen representing all 10 Division I FBS conference and independents. Air Force is one of 17 schools with multiple players selected. The pair spearheaded the offensive line to the Joe Moore Midseason Honor Roll. The Joe Moore Award recognizes the Most Outstanding Offensive Line Unit in College Football.

The offensive line has paved the way for Air Force to lead the Mountain West and rank second in the nation in rushing with a 336 average. The Falcons lead the conference and are fourth nationally in fewest sacks allowed with two. Air Force leads the Mountain West and is fourth nationally in time of possession with a 34:29 mark.

Senior offensive lineman Kyle Krepsz, sophomore fullback Brad Roberts and senior defensive lineman George Silvanic all earned honorable mention honors.

The Falcons close the regular season Saturday, Dec. 19, at 1 p.m. MT at Army in a winner-take-all battle for the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy. Air Force seeks its record 21st CIC trophy.
