Air Force Depth Chart Released For Opener vs. Navy
Quarterback position is up for grabs and a lot of new faces.
Falcons prepping for season opener.
Air Force is finally taking the field for its first game as it hosts Navy on Saturday afternoon. There will be a lot of new faces for this Falcons team to be in the starting line.
There are over 30 Falcons players who are taking advantage of turnbacks which allow for these Air Force players to leave campus for one semester and return at a later date. Due to COVID-19, these athletes are leaving this fall with the hopes 2021 will be a normal football season.
The Colorado Springs Gazette notes the majority of the turnbacks are on defense which is a unit that already was not an area of strength heading into this year.
Returning starters including linebacker Demonte Meeks, defensive end Jordan Jackson, outside linebacker Lakota Wills, cornerback Milton Bugg III and projected impact players like defensive back James Jones IV and safety Trey Taylor are among the defensive players who are not at the academy this semester.
