Air Force Enjoys Break from 'Regular' Routine

By Jim Benton,

Fort Worth, Texas, December 28, 2009 – Air Force Academy football players are starting to enjoy how the ‘other’ half of the regular college world lives as they prepare this week for Thursday’s seventh annual Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl that will be played at Amon G. Carter Stadium.  Stepping away from their regular military academy routine, the Falcons went through their third practice on Monday at Kennedale High School and since the Air Force Academy is on break for the holidays, the players have the rare opportunity to concentrate on nothing but football.  Air Force players don’t have to be concerned about early wake up calls, trigonometry, calculus or aeronautical engineering assignments or military duties.  “It’s a lot nicer,” junior defensive back Reggie Rembert (pictured) said.  “We don’t have to wake up at 6:30, we get a little more sleep and get to have a little more fun.”
