Sky Kings Football Notes & Quotes

"I remember 2 chants from the Sky Kings games, and that guy who led the Cheerleaders."

  • "BLOOD MAKES THE GRASS GROW, KILL! KILL!"
  • "RAH RAH REE, KICK 'EM IN THE KNEE.
    RAH RAH RASS, KICK 'EM IN THE OTHER KNEE"
Submitted by Susan "Sparky" Kincaid (now Allen), 20th AMS.
"Dear Sky kings,
I was a former player and coach on the first four years of the Sky King football team from it's inception in 1970 when we won the first USAF championship until the fall of 1973 where I helped coach in the first college bowl game - USAF all-stars and University of Rode Island Rams - in Frankfurt Germany after we beat Rime AFB for the USAF championship. My # was 73 and I played all the positions on the defensive and offensive lines except tight end. In the picture of the team I am shown in the top left corner along side Bernie and behind Tebo # 40. Has there aver been any talk of a Sky King reunion? I would surly be interested in one. I would also like to talk to any one from the team that would like to communicate with me."
