The season is slowly winding down and we recapped Air Force's 27-19 win over rival Colorado State in the Falcons' regular-season finale. AF fullback Cole Fagan was awarded our weekly "Game Ball" presented by Military after rushing for a career-high 260 yards against the Rams. Our guest this week is former Navy wide receiver and New York Giants punt returner Phil McConkey, who played a key role in the Giants's Super Bowl win against Denver (1987). He shared his story of pursuing his dream of pro football after five years away from the game, while on active duty and finally the ultimate call placed to Bill Belichick landing him a spot in NY's training camp (1984).
