10/6/2009 - U.S. AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. -- A senior defensive lineman for the Air Force Academy's Falcons football team will be featured on "Inside Academy Football," a 30-minute CBS College Sports Network program that debuts Oct. 9 from 5-5:30 p.m. Mountain Standard Time.

The segment on Cadet 1st Class Ben Garland was filmed the week of Sept. 21 and includes shots of him attending class, eating meals at Mitchell Dining Hall and engaging day-to-day activities such as doing homework and performing squadron duties. 

Interviews with Cadet Garland's coaches, teammates, classroom instructors and air officer commanding will also be included in the segment, interspersed with shots of the Grand Junction, Colo., native at football practice. 

Cadet Garland and the current senior class are scheduled to graduate May 26, 2010. 

"Inside Academy Football" is billed as "exploring how the players' sport intersects, enriches and informs their lives as officers-in-training for the United States military...(and) delving into the tradition and meaning of football at Army, Navy and Air Force." 

The program will highlight a player from each of the nation's service academies as a prelude to the Saturday night game. Each team will play as part of a tripleheader which culminates the CBS-C's "Armed Forces Appreciation Week." The Air Force Academy will play TCU on the Academy's home field, Falcon Stadium, with kickoff scheduled for 5:30 p.m. MST.
