Broam Hart, another junior, saw decent action at running back while gaining 100 yards on 29 carries. Hart, who came to the academy from Alvarado, Texas, has increased his weight to 210 from his high school playing weight of 195. He gained almost 4,000 combined yards during his last two seasons at Alvarado High School.
Air Force could also get help at running back from several talented Air Force Prep School standouts who could be joining the team for preseason camp. The below players are all listed on the prep school roster but it has not been confirmed whether or not they will move up to the Academy.
Nnaji Omenye ran for 1,043 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2011 for Jackson-Olin High School in Birmingham, Ala. The 5-foot-9, 204 back back also had 14 catches for 141 yards. Omenye ran for a 4-yard touchown in prep school's game again Garden City.
Andrew Long is a 5-foot-10, 180 pound running back with 4.4 forty speed from Southmoore High School in Oklahoma City. Long ran for 1,084 yards as a senior at Southmoore. At the prep school Long did see action playing in several games. Against Butler Junior College he had one carry for 8 yards.
San Jose State, Colorado and Utah in addition to Air Force.
Tyler Siudzinski (5-10, 185) is another superb running back from the Air Force Prep School. Siudzinski, from Tustin High School in California, ran for almost 2,000 yards as a senior. Siudzinski has seen some action at the prep school, running for 13 yards on one carry against Hutchinson Community College.
Willie Curry from Enterprise, Alabama had almost 3,000 yards during his high school career. He also had 33 catches during his Enterprise High School career. Curry did see game action at the prep school.
Brian Jacquet from Round Rock, Texas (Stony Point HS) is listed as fullback on the prep school roster. Jacquet (5-9, 170) primarily played as a defensive back and returned kicks in high school but has had a significant number of carries at the prep school. He had 9 carries for 31 yards and TD in Air Force Prep loss to Coffeyville in September. He also had 11 carries for 48 yards against Butler Junior College with long carry of 22 yards.
Alex Lakes from Palmetto, Ga., (Northgate HS) is another player listed as a fullback on the prep school roster. Lakes had 7 carries for 37 yards and TD in prep school game versus Butler JC in September.
John Wiernicki is another player listed as fullback on prep roster. He likely had the most prolific high school rushing performances of the incoming prep schoolers. Wiernicki ran for an amazing 2,562 yards and 40 touchdowns during his senior season career at Liberty Ranch High School in California. However, no evidence was found by Falcons Report of Wiernicki garnering an offensive carry at Air Force Academy Prep School. Wiernicki has picked up tackles in several prep school games so it appears he's being used as a linebacker or safety.
The below listed running backs recently signed with Air Force in February. Some may be direct admits and some may attend the prep school.
