Air Force wrapped up spring practice a few weeks back on April 4th, and finished spring practice with more questions then answers at the quarterback position. Originally Tim Jefferson who was the starter for most of last season was to continue that roll, but with academic issues the Falcons reopened the position in the fall.
Asher Clark who was running back now turned quarterback will have a chance to compete to be the starting quarterback in 2009. Last year Clark compiled 588 yards on the ground with a 4.5 yards per and if he can even throw a little bit then Clark has a chance.
The other choice besides Jefferson is Ben Cochran who was the third string quarterback last year, and while he may not start he received the benefit of extra playing time because of Jefferson missing twelve practices because of academics.
Still expect that no one player will be able to do what Chad Hall did two years ago where he was produced over 90 percent of the offensive output.
Typically at the Academy any player can be inputed into a position and have success, even at the Quarterback position. The players are smart and disciplined which is what a signal caller needs to be.
Whether it be Asher Clark who was a running back last year and now quarterback in 2009 or if Jefferson gets his academics in order the quarterback position at Air Force should be able to produce.
With this being year three of Troy Calhoun the big change could be here with his recruited players in his system.
