Quarterback Connor Dietz Ready To Take Charge Of Air Force Offense

It will be his only season of playing starting quarterback for the Air Force Falcons, but senior Connor Dietz appears ready to assume the leadership role, writes David Ramsey of the Colorado Springs Gazette.

Dietz figures to be a perfect fit for Air Force's run-heavy offensive style of play and could turn out to be one of the premier rushers in all of the Mountain West, reports Ramsey.

He's the rare quarterback who enjoys punishing linebackers. He prefers the violence of the playing field to the safety of running out of bounds.

In addition to his bruising running style, Dietz has also kept his teammates on their toes by flinging a few deep balls in Falcons practice. Still, it appears that under the senior signal-caller's guidance, Air Force's attack will be heavy doses of ground and pound in 2012.
