Air Force starting QB not in good standing


Air Force has lost three straight games and now has lost their starting quarterback. Jaleel Awini has been suspended and is no longer a cadet in good standing.

“Air Force Academy Cadet Third Class (C3C) Jaleel Awini is no longer a cadet in good standing and is not allowed to represent the Academy in any outside activities, effective immediately,” a statement released by the academy reads. Awini completed 21 of 42 pass attempts for 275 yards this season and quickly took over as the team’s starting quarterback following the injury to Kale Pearson. Awini had previously been on academic probation, although it is not confirmed Awini’s academic standing has factored in to this latest roster change.

“All cadets are held to the same high standards –- honor, physical fitness, academics and military aptitude — and each case is handled on its own individual merits,” the release explained. “Holding each cadet to these high standards promotes good order and discipline throughout the institution.”

Sophomore Karson Roberts will likely be the new starting quarterback for Air Force, with the Falcons traveling to Nevada this weekend. Roberts has thrown six passes this season.

    Becoming an ugly year for Air Force. I watched Wyoming take them out behind the woodshed last Saturday and score 42 points in the first half against them.

    Thank GOD that there is some accountability left in today’s society. It’s time that today’s generation learn that they are NOT entitled to anything and that actions come with consequences.
