Sometimes, school pride just bursts free:
That’s Lt. Col. Scott Thomas, All-American defensive back for Air Force in 1985, playing to the Colorado Springs crowd as a special guest of the ESPN “College GameDay” crew in 2009. ESPN brought their pregame festivities to the academy that year before the Army-Air Force game, which the Falcons won 35-7. Thomas served as a guest analyst. His impartiality might be a tad suspect.
Thomas was elected to the College Football Hall of Fame earlier this year. His coach for that 1985 season, Fisher DeBerry, was part of the 2011 class.
