Hall Named Player of the Week

Air Force senior Chad Hall was named the Mountain West Conference’s Offensive Player of the Week on Monday for his performance in the Falcons’ 31-14 victory over UNLV on Saturday night.

Hall caught a team-high four passes for 44 yards and rushed for a career-high 169 yards on 18 carries (9.4 yards per carry) – the most rushing yards by a non-quarterback at the academy in a game since 1991.

The question surrounding Hall the entire season has been whether he is touching the ball enough since moving from halfback to Z receiver. But Troy Calhoun has made a concerted effort the past two games to get Hall the ball more. He had 22 “touches” on Saturday night, the most he’s had in a game this year.

Hall is the first Falcon to earn a MWC Player of the Week honor since senior inside linebacker Drew Fowler was named the conference’s Defensive Player of the Week for his performance in Air Force’s 20-12 victory over Utah on Sept. 8.

Jake,

The Men's B-ball team is doing 'mid-day' madness on 27 Oct, on Saturday from 12-2. I am sure you already know, but just in case, I wanted to mention it here.

Chad Hall is a phenomenal competitor, he has had two outstanding games in a row, if the rest of the offense gets going like he is, we might be hard to stop.

I'd like to see Hall get the ball behind some DB's. I don't think Carney has thrown any passes beyond 20 yards (before YAC) all year. When is Calhoun going to make teams defend the entire field?

Hall definitely deserves it. He was phenomenal on Saturday, along with many other players. Congats Chad!

They need to get mark root the ball downfield

Root should be their go to receiver every time, if they got him the ball as much as they got Hall the ball he'd be one of the top receivers in the country.

I would like to see Air Force strech the field too. At least test the opponent down the field a little bit and make it respect the deep ball. I don't know if many of their receivers can get open deep, but it would be good to see them try.
And, thinking about it, I've seen them throw a bunch of deep balls in practice. Maybe this is the week.
