Air Force faces Wyoming tonight at Arena-Auditorium in Laramie in its second-to-last regular season game of the 2009-10 season. Senior guard Saj El-Amin likely won’t play much – he’s played in just 10 minutes in three games this season – but he’s had a big influence on the Falcons.
El-Amin played for the Falcons’ football team in the fall. Neither the Air Force sports information folks nor Troy Calhoun could think off the top of their heads of another academy athlete who played football and hoops in the same academic year. Anyone have a name of someone who did it before El-Amin?
Also in today’s edition of The Gazette, Frank Schwab looks at Air Force fencer Peter French, whose skill is matched by his sportsmanship.
