Here are some tidbits I wasn’t able to fit in my notebook that appeared in Tuesday’s edition of The Gazette.
You can see that notebook here. It deals mostly with the news that senior Ty Paffett, who is expected to be the Falcons’ starter at Z-receiver (the hybrid running back/receiver position that Chad Hall played last year), might undergo back surgery for a herniated disc on June 26.
Anyway, onto the notes:
-Practice is likely to start on July 31 (a Thursday). The Falcons’ practice schedule currently is at the compliance office awaiting final approval.
-If practice does start on July 31, Air Force will hold its annual media day on July 30 in the afternoon.
-Air Force’s marketing department has come up with a new poster to promote the 2008 season. It features close-up shots of seniors Travis Dekker (tight end), Ryan Harrison (kicker) and Ryan Kemp (defensive end) in their uniforms. The poster contains the slogan “Athletes, Leaders, Champions.”
-Later today I’ll be posting the next edition of the First Look Series. This week: CSU.
