UNITED STATES AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. - Lee Douglas, long-time KOAA TV sports director and Air Force football color analyst who passed away in February, was honored today at Falcon Stadium. A plaque in Douglas' honor was unveiled at the Falcon football luncheon and was then hung in the press box at Falcon Stadium.

Born Douglas Lee Cooley, but better known as Lee Douglas, died on Feb. 4, 2012 in Pueblo, Colo. at the age of 54. Douglas hosted the Air Force Football Show with Fisher DeBerry, the Academy's television coaches show, in the mid-1980s. He worked at KOAA-TV channels 5/30 for 30 years and KRDO channel 13 before that. Douglas also worked at KFEL and KDZA radio in Pueblo for many years.

Douglas was the color commentator for Air Force football radio broadcasts for eight years from 2004-2011. In 2005, he was inducted into the Greater Pueblo Sports Hall of Fame in 2005. He won multiple awards from the Colorado Broadcasters Association and the Associated Press, served on the Board of Directors for the Boys and Girls Club of Pueblo County and Lower Arkansas Valley and served on the selection committee for the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame.

The inscription on the bottom of the plaque reads "A treasure to the Colorado Springs and Pueblo communities and a true friend of Air Force Athletics."
