His words, not mine. Former Air Force defensive lineman Chad Hennings, the academy's most famous former football players just said he never had a chance to jump with Air Force's Wings of Blue parachuters or any jump team. You can't be over 220 pounds to do it, and Hennings was about 30 pounds over the limit in college.
Still would have been cool to see a football player that size do it, especially with the American flag in tow.
Three bowls have scouts at today's Texas Tech-Texas game. Two are from BCS bowls (Sugar, Fiesta). the other is from the Texas Bowl. For Texas, it marks the third consecutive game that the team has played in front of scouts from BCS Bowls.
