Guile and gumption mark the alarmingly small but very enthusiastic Air Force Academy Falcons. Coach Ben Martin's dream team hasn't the size to overpower the opposition on offense or defense, so it must substitute speed and intuitive reactions for heft. This the Falcons have done superbly well under the calculatingly reckless direction of young RICH MAYO, a 19-year-old quarterback who passes well and reacts to adversity with the aplomb of a born fighter pilot. The Falcon ground attack is built around the strong running of Fullback STEVE GALIOS, who is the best football player on the Falcon team. The Falcons concentrate on short gainers, aground or in the air, using halfback traps and the belly series with considerable success. The defense, anchored on Tackle BROCK STROM and an agile, hard-tackling guard named HOWARD BRONSON, jabs and feints, hits and runs to avoid being ground down by power.
