You might someday see Colorado State quarterback Pete Thomas throwing passes in the NFL. He’s 6-foot-5, 220 pounds. He’s blessed with superb poise. He started last season as a true freshman for the Rams.
At one point, it seemed you might see Thomas throwing footballs for Air Force Academy. His brother, Chris, wrestled at the academy. Pete is familiar with the rewards and the rigors of cadet life.
Air Force coach Troy Calhoun offered this theory to explain why Thomas ended up in Fort Collins. Calhoun spoke during Wednesday’s annual Kickoff Luncheon.
“He saw our offensive line and said, ‘I’m bigger than all of them,’ ” Calhoun said.
But not much of one.
