Air Force finished tied for third in the Mountain West. The Falcons had the same overall record as San Diego State, finishing behind TCU and Utah. TCU had nine first-team all-Mountain West picks, Utah had four, San Diego State had six, and Air Force? Just one. That’s the same amount as New Mexico and Colorado State, which combined for three conference wins.
Cornerback Reggie Rembert, the lone Falcon on the all-MWC first team, said it was disappointing he was the only one.
“It really was,” Rembert said. “I think we have a lot more deserving players than that.”
Team success doesn’t always mean individual awards are deserved, and there doesn’t seem to be any dramatic snub among the Falcons. Perhaps one of the offensive linemen on the all-MWC second team, Chase Darden or A.J. Wallerstein, had a good case as part of a unit that was a big part of the Falcons’ success this year. Air Force ranks second among FBS teams in rushing offense.
Go to the bottom of this story on Rembert (loved the story about the pictures on the wall outside the locker room) to view the all-MWC first team. Let me know which Falcons should have been on it.
