A blast — well, more of a bolt — from Air Force’s football past will be eligible for the College Football Hall of Fame this year, but he’s got a crowded field to deal with. Ernie Jennings, a first-team All-American wide receiver in 1970 who led the Falcons to the 1971 Sugar Bowl, was among the 77 players and coaches to make the Hall’s first cut, the Air Force Academy announced Tuesday. His 74 catches for 1,289 yards and 17 touchdowns remain single-season Air Force records; he also holds all the school’s career marks (148 catches, 2,392 yards, 28 TDs).…

If you’re looking for a thorough breakdown of Super Bowl XLVII — analyzing every angle, grading every position, charting the careers of the brothers Harbaugh back through junior high — you’ve come to the wrong place. You can find said breakdown anywhere. We’d suggest these guys, by the way. Heck, even the folks at the Defense Video & Imagery Distribution System, better known as DVIDS, are in on the act, if you’re curious how an Air Force public affairs staffer thinks the big game will go. If you’re officially sick of pregame hype but need something to pass the time…

Former Air Force wide receiver Chad Hall scored his first and only touchdown of the 2011 NFL season on Sunday, and he did it in pretty impressive fashion. The Eagles wideout caught a pass from quarterback Michael Vick at the two-yard line and broke the tackles of two Washington Redskins — cornerback DeAngelo Hall (look closely, he gets earholed by Hall) and linebacker Perry Riley. A second-year pro, Hall finishes 2011 with three catches for 20 yards and the TD. He also ran the ball three times for 13 yards, and he had seven punt returns for 76 yards. Standard…

The final three service academy graduates battling to make NFL teams were all released Saturday ahead of the league’s mandatory deadline for cutting squads to 53 players. The Eagles cut Air Force grad Chad Hall, New England cut Navy grad Eric Kettani and Detroit parted ways with Army grad Caleb Campbell. But the news isn’t all bad. Hall, who led the Eagles in receiving in the preseason, will be signed to the Philadelphia practice squad, according to Philly.com. And Kettani, who missed much of the Patriots training camp with an injury, is a strong candidate to be signed to the New…

Multiple news outlets are reporting that the Philadelphia Eagles have released second-year wide receiver Chad Hall, a 2008 graduate of the Air Force Academy. The move comes as NFL teams are trimming their rosters down to 53 ahead of tonight’s 6 p.m. ET deadline. Hall led the Eagles in catches this preseason and scored a touchdown in the Eagles’ final game on Thursday. However, he also muffed two punts, losing one, in the victory against the Jets. In 2010 Hall appeared in eight games for the Eagles. He caught 11 passes for 115 yards including a touchdown in the final game…

The NFL lockout is over so ESPN can mercifully retire the same photo of the locked gate holding back the dirty snow we saw over and over and over again. But this also means our favorite former service academy stars can return to the field and NFL teams can invite recent graduates who will try to catch a coach’s eye before returning to active duty. Sure, this is probably the lazy way to go but let’s see what the players are up to via the Twittersphere now that the NFL’s has announced that football’s back and we can go back…

Former Air Force standout and current Philadelphia Eagle wide receiver Chad Hall isn’t standing around waiting for the NFL lockout to be resolved. He needs money, like right now, so he’s taking some measures to maintain a decent income, ESPN’s Rick Reilly reports. First, Hall is offering his services as a personal trainer for his friends’ kids. But on the more adventuresome side, Hall is also looking into opening a wing joint in Atlanta with Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford, who happens to be dating Hall’s sister. And if the restaurant thing doesn’t work out, Hall may fall back on…

Air Force alum and Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Chad Hall has to describe the ending to his first season in the NFL as bittersweet only because it ended in such disappointing fashion. Outside maybe a deeper run into the playoffs, Hall couldn’t have imagined a much better start to his NFL career. Considered a long shot by most to even make the Eagles practice squad, Hall took advantage of injuries in the Eagles wide receiver corps and made the active roster, suiting up for his first NFL regular season game Oct. 10 against the San Francisco 49ers. He caught one…

Air Force alum and Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Chad Hall got so fired up over his touchdown catch in the Eagles regular season finale that he fired up his Twitter account for the first time since Oct. 7. “Playoff week baby! Win or go home!” Hall tweeted on Jan. 4 . While most Eagles starters sat out the team’s last regular season game because the Eagles had already locked up their playoff position, Hall took full advantage. He caught six balls for 84 yards and even took a direct snap at quarterback against the Dallas Cowboys. What might be most…

Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid delivered Air Force Academy alum Chad Hall what seemed like a compliment this week minus the fact he said his wide receiver/running back had the face of a 15-year-old. “He looks like he’s 15, but he’s a talented kid. You’ve got to get past his face and then he’s well-built for his size, and he’s very intelligent and tough. He gives you a little flexibility in some packages to do some things,” Reid said. Hall remained on the active roster this week against the Tennessee Titans this week fending off Kelly Washington, who the team…
