He’s only seen him play once in person, and that was two years ago, but Air Force head coach Troy Calhoun knows the improvements that Brett Smith has made. The last time that Smith took the field against the Falcons was his true freshman season. That year, the Cowboys beat Air Force in Colorado Springs. Last season, Smith missed the game, recovering from another concussion, and the Pokes lost a tight game at home. But Smith has shown tremendous improvement from that freshman season when he beat the Falcons, and you can count Calhoun in as one who has noticed Smith’s growth as a quarterback.
The Cowboys, 2-1, are at Air Force (1-2, 0-2), Saturday night. Kickoff in Colorado Springs is set for 8:15 pm.
