Air Force starting QB Hammond could miss season

Air Force starting quarterback Donald Hammond III is “no longer a cadet in good standing” and could miss the 2020 season.

A school spokesman confirmed the information to The Gazette in Colorado Springs on Saturday night, but declined to specify any violations or reasons for Hammond’s status.

As a junior in 2019, Hammond started 11 of his 13 games as the Falcons finished 11-2 with a No. 22 ranking in the final Associated Press Top 25 poll.

He rushed for 553 yards and 13 touchdowns and completed 56 of 111 passes for 1,316 yards with 13 touchdowns and six interceptions. In a 44-22 win at New Mexico on Nov. 23, he became the first Air Force quarterback since Dee Dowis in 1989 to throw for more than 300 yards in a game.
