Air Force Lefty Jake DeVries Flying Under the Radar

Few teams have had the opportunity to evaluate Jake DeVries, but industry folks who are familiar with the Air Force junior left-hander tell me why Four Corners scouts will want to put eyes on him next spring in advance of the 2016 draft.

Air Force football announced Thursday that their 2016 date with New Mexico will take place at Cotton Bowl Stadium in Dallas, Texas.
