Air Force Prep School Opener a Convincing Win

The Air Force Prep school Huskies opened its 2008 football season with a dominating win over the New Mexico Prep School. The AFA Huskies play a tough JC/JV schedule.

The Air Force Academy Prep School football team opened its season with a convincing win over the New Mexico Prep School.  In a game played in quasi monsoon conditions, the Huskies dominated.  The Husky defensive line was impressive and strong the entire game, consistently overwhelming the Bandits offensive efforts.  The final score was AFA Prep 32-7 over NM Prep.

A little background on the NM Prep program as reported on their web site (http://www.nmpfootball.org) .  "New Mexico Prep postgraduate football program was created to give the student athletes of New Mexico an opportunity to showcase their skills academically as well as on a football field at the college prep level.  New Mexico Prep is not a college. Student athletes are required to attend Central New Mexico Community College (CNM) located in Albuquerque, NM. Student athletes who are selected to participate in New Mexico Prep football program are required to take developmental courses, or be a part time student (part-time student meaning any hours less than 12 credits) so they can establish a college classroom work ethic and not use any of their college football eligibility in the process." 

New Mexico Prep's program, much like AFA Prep schedules a number of JV and JC level football programs. For fans that are in the local (AFA) area, make an effort to attend some home games.  The Huskies play a brand of football very similar to the Falcons and it is your chance to possibly see see some future Air Force Falcons.  Another note of interest about the AFA Prep program; the players are not affiliated with the AFA cadet wing and must still qualify to attend the Air Force Academy after graduating from the Prep School.  Also, any other college or university can still recruit and sign players graduating from the AFA Prep school.
