Despite 'Bad' Eyes, Air Force's Hall Leads On Rushing, Receiving

By  | 

By Air Force standards for pilots, Chad Hall doesn't have very good eyes.

But when playing football for the Air Force Academy Falcons, Hall's vision on the field has been out of sight.

The senior running back-receiver is the only player in the country to lead his team in both rushing, with 1,122 yards, and receiving, with 426.

He set a school record for rushing in a game last week when he gained 275 yards against Army, breaking his own previous mark of 256 set earlier in the season against Colorado State.

And Hall has already set the school's single-season mark for all-purpose yards with 1,961 -- eclipsing the old record of 1,735 yards set by Cormac Carney in 1978.

Hall has been named Mountain West Conference offensive player of the week three times.

As for the vision trouble, the Atlanta native apparently has trouble with depth perception.

On the field, though, that's hard to see.

And Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis expects to see quite a bit of Hall when the Fighting Irish host Air Force on Saturday.
